Sonam Kapoor trolled for wearing mangalsutra as bracelet à la Shilpa Shetty
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s choice to wear her mangalsutra around her wrist has left some social media users underwhelmed by her styling choice. While netizens might not be so into this unusual style of ‘mangalsutra’, another actor, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, has been wearing her mangalsutra as a bracelet, for years.Updated: May 29, 2018 18:01 IST

Actor Sonam Kapoor Ahuja wearing her mangalsutra as a bracelet is dividing social media. While many find her choice “beautiful” and “stylish”, a number of her fans are less than impressed, criticising her for “disrespecting” Indian culture.
Interestingly, Sonam’s mangalsutra was designed by the actor herself, and she picked out an unusual and meaningful detail to make it special. The Veere Di Wedding actor got fine jewellery designer, Usheeta Rawtani, to create a mangalsutra with symbols of the couple’s zodiac signs — hers being Gemini and her husband Anand Ahuja’s Leo -- with a single solitaire in the centre.
Now, critics of the actor, who married her long-time boyfriend Anand Ahuja on May 8, are taking to Instagram and Twitter to vent their feelings.
Some were supportive:

So what's the news. Better to leave her alone. It's her decision. Media should respect individuals privacy.— RMK (@rmk1205) May 27, 2018
Others...not so much:
Mangalsutra is not compulsion but it is love by wife for her husband. And it should always be nearby heart for which it is weared in neck. This bollywood is declining our culture day by day as they grow up in foreign. So they are mixture of indian+foreign.— Arpit Swarna (@ArpitSi04280592) May 26, 2018
Tomorrow she will wear it on her ankle. Wo bhi fashion ho jayega. All are filmstars are crap. We give them undue importance.— Mumbaichi Mulgi (@PallaviDeo5) May 26, 2018
But Twitter didn’t stop with Sonam and called out actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra for wearing her mangalsutra differently, for years.
