Ranbir Kapoor and Mahira Khan attended Global Teacher Prize ceremony and their pictures and videos went viral.

On Thursday, Pakistani actor Mahira Khan’s photo with Ranbir Kapoor went viral on social media. Clicked in New York, the photo saw Mahira and Ranbir busy in an animated discussion while smoking.

As is option the case, social media didn’t take much time in criticising Mahira Khan for her short dress and smoking. Ironically, not many pointed fingers at Ranbir Kapoor who was also holding a cigarette in his hand.

Later, many celebrities like Parineeti Chopra, Varun Dhawan and Ali Zafar came in support of Mahira. Ranbir also released a statement saying, “Smoking and hate are injurious to health.”

The latest celeb to defend Mahira is Hate Story 3 actor Zareen Khan. She talked to Indianexpress.com about the incident. She says, “Oh! She is a girl, she is wearing a short dress and she is a Muslim, she is from Pakistan… I know all these things. But I think people should understand that everybody is an individual and rather than judging other people, you should take care of yours. If you like something, watch it. If you don’t, then don’t watch it.”

She further says, “Everybody has an opinion, everyone behaves as if they are out to take over the world and correct the world, they give out these statements thinking this is how they are contributing to correcting the world by catching hold of a particular human being and trying to make them feel bad.”

Going by the support Mahira is receiving from all over the world, the people who criticised her are likely to eat their words.
