Harshaali Malhotra trolled for calling Katrina Kaif ‘auntie’


Child artiste Harshaali Malhotra, who shot to fame with her performance in Salman Khan starrer blockbuster ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ got trolled on social media after she called Katrina Kaif ‘auntie’.

Katrina debuted on Facebook on her 33rd birthday on July 16 and Harshaali was among the many who wished the ‘Fitoor’ actress. The eight-year-old girl posted a picture of herself with Katrina taken when the latter visited the sets of the Kabir Khan directorial last year, and wished, “Happy birthday ... Katrina Kaif auntie.”

Katrina had organised a live chat with her fans on her birthday and Harshaali had also commented on the post writing, "Hi kartina auntie me Harshaali ..... Do u remember me ???”

While Katrina accepted her little colleague’s wishes and replied, “Thank you love," the ‘auntie’ tag didn’t go down well with the ‘Phantom’ actress’ fans who ridiculed Harshaali for calling her ‘auntie’. They suggested that she should have referred to Katrina as ‘didi’.

"Never ever call her aunty, she is just as cute as you," one user commented on Harshaali’s post. “What nonsense are u out of mind?? harshali katrina is ur Didi,” wrote another, while some others ‘lolled’ and ‘ROFLed’.

But there were others who came to her support saying that in terms of age, Katrina could well be her aunty, and when the actress herself has no problem, others should not comment. She showed respect for Katrina, said another.

Meanwhile, Katrina will be next seen in debutant director Nitya Mehra’s ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ opposite Sidharth Malhotra, which is slated to release on September 9. She will also be seen opposite ex-flame Ranbir Kapoor in the much delayed project ‘Jagga Jasoos’.
