So cringe,” wrote another. “Let’s see a middle aged short guy do exactly the same with Madhuri or Sridevi or Kareena and get away with it,” commented a person. “So not cool! What if the roles were reversed? Honestly, that shouldn't even be a consideration... whatever happened to personal space & consent,” said another.
