Actress-model Mandira Bedi recently became subjected to ruthless trolling after she Instagrammed a photo of herself in a bikini from the beaches of Crete. Mandira Bedi, who appears to be on a work-turned-holiday mode in Greece, shared a mid-shot selfie from the beach, in which she can be seen sporting a blue bikini, something which a section of her followers on Instagram did not appear to approve. While many hailed Mandira, 46 and mother of one, for setting fitness goals, some body-shamed her and posted comments like “disgusting”, “disgraceful” and “vulgar”. The rest of the comments are too vile to be reproduced here. Mandira Bedi was also told to opt for surgery by those, who considered her physique unsuitable for beachwear and trolled her for her toned arms. Her “upbringing” was also invoked in one of the comments and remarks are proof of what’s so wrong with the Internet.
Sharing the photo, Mandira Bedi wrote: “My first selfie in beautiful Crete. Got a few precious moments for some gym and beach time before the whirlwind begins.”
Similar comments were also spotted on another photo of Mandira, posted from Greece:
Those who negatively criticised Mandira’s toned physique, perhaps are unaware that Mandira is a sports junkie and fitness enthusiast. Earlier in May, she was spotted doing push-ups in sportswear on the ramp. She shared a photo from the fashion show on Instagram, a part of whose caption read: “I love sport and fitness is a super-important part of my life and so… finding the ultimate support is sometimes tough.”
