Deepika Padukone is back in line of fire as trolls on photo sharing website Instagram have attacked her latest picture with lewd comments. A day ago, the actress shared a black and white photograph from the photoshoot of international magazine Vanity Fair. Hinting at her slim frame, comments poured in like, ‘sick’, ‘looks like she’s stopped eating… yuck’, and ‘you looking so anorexic’ amongst many others. One of the users even went on to refer Deepika Padukone as ‘dead body’. Deepika features in a basic black dress, statement neckpiece and minimal make-up in the picture, but her weight-loss called for a lot of criticism.

Deepika loyalists in the meantime tried their best to shun trolls calling her ‘beautiful’ and ‘gorgeous’, but the calls of ‘malnutrition’ overshadowed all the positivity. Despite this, there is little that trolls can do beyond hounding Deepika with all the negativity they could on various social media platforms. The celebrated Bollywood actress goes on to make bold choices, bag major films and be showered with the audience’s love at the theatres.
