Mahira Khan has spoken up on the controversy surrounding her leaked photos with Ranbir Kapoor while also saying that she finds herself to be a good role model for her fans.
Pakistani actress Mahira Khan has opened up about the controversy surrounding her photos with Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor that took the social media by storm in September. The 32-year-old beauty has said that she was shattered after the photos leaked on the social media and people started trolling her. Shedding light on the tough phase, she said that it was not that the incident did not affect her and she decided to keep mum on the controversy feeling totally confident.
Mahira said that she is quite a strong woman but when the controversy erupted, she was left broken and that she had thought of posting a statement on the matter but stopped herself. She revealed that she did so as she did not know what to say. However, now she has found the strength to do so and says that now she can also understand why people were enraged. She says that the disappointment of elders was genuine.
It was something she could relate to as her grandmother or uncle would have also felt disappointment after seeing those pictures. This is why she apologizes if an old lady tells her about those pictures being distasteful. She also said that she finds herself to be a good role model for her fans but added that she is not a perfect one. As for the trolls, she has no sympathy but she is grateful to those who supported her. She feels that it is a sign of change and she is happy to be a part of that change.
It is worth mentioning here that in September pictures of Mahira Khan and Ranbir Kapoor had leaked on social media causing a scandal as the duo was seen smoking on the streets of New York with the former clad in a short white backless dress.
