BOLLYWOOD: Internet trolls are becoming quite a nuisance to be honest and celebrities are now not shying away from calling them out.
In the latest, Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor made an example of a troll’s comments who wrote that the actor looked like ‘a molester’ in a new picture from his upcoming release, Namaste England.
Under a picture which Kapoor’s co-star Parineeti Chopra shared on Twitter of their upcoming film, a Twitter user wrote, “Is it only me or Arjun Kapoor looks like a molester in the pic?”

To this Arjun replied, “When terms like this are used lightly, it signifies lack of basic human understanding of the how big a deal it is to make sure we don’t take women’s safety lightly or as a joke.”
Several of Arjun’s fans commented on his statement, offering apologies on behalf of the original commenter.
Meanwhile, the original troll returned to post another tweet: “Okey.. what is happening.? I just made a joke. Went for a coffee and my Twitter blowing up. I was just referring to the facial expression. Chill guys! Many veteran actors have played the look of a villain, it doesn’t make them one. People get offended so easily.”
