Mom-to-be Soha Ali Khan wears sari for a party; gets trolled


Soha Ali Khan and husband Kunal Khemu are expecting their first child. Soha, just like her sister-in-law Kareena Kapoor, is proudly flaunting her baby bump. The actress is currently in her second trimester and is due in September.

Soha and Kunal hosted a party, where the ‘Rang De Basanti’ wore a beautiful pink sari with golden border and embroidery. With the pregnancy glow and traditional attire, Soha looked lovely. A gajra (floral tiara) adorned her bun and a bindi on her forehead enhanced her look. Kunal, on the other hand sported a white kurta-pyjama and looked handsome as he smilingly posed with his wife.

“It isn't a party without balloons!” Soha captioned a photograph of her and Kunal with colourful balloons scattered. She also shared another picture collage with pictures of the couple with their friends and captioned it, “The love of family and friends is reason enough to dress up.”

While Soha hasn’t mentioned the occasion, it is being guessed that it was to celebrate her baby shower in a traditional Bengali manner, given that her mother, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore, is a Bengali. It could also be a post-Eid get-together.

However, a section of social media users was apparently offended because Soha wore a sari! They claimed that the Pataudi princess was “not a Muslim.” She was trolled for her attire and not posting Eid greetings.

‘Inko sharm aati hai eid likhne me shame on you soha ali khan you r not a muslim’, ‘Dislike soha Ali khan .Wdf image wearing. I swear she's not a Muslim ! Can't even say it's Eid,’ ‘Wat culture u follow there is no problem but how about ur iman?’, ‘Nawab title hata lo nawab aise nahi the’, read some of the negative comments on her picture.

However, fans of Soha were quick to come to her rescue and slammed the haters. From standing up for the right to wear whatever one likes, to questioning the user and their regressive thoughts, they gave it back to the trolls.

The hate-comments were fewer as compared to the deluge of positive remarks about the good-looking couple, their love, and good wishes for their forthcoming baby.
