Mahira, who is banned from India after the URI attacks, shares a "good bond" with one of the most eligible bachelors of B-town, Ranbir Kapoor, and planned to meet up his "good friend" someplace where no one can bother the actors.
While most are hopeful of a budding romance between the two, the "haya (shame) brigade" has taken it upon itself to shower Mahira with unwarranted judgement over her dress and lifestyle habits.
They have also slated the actress for smoking and her alleged "relationship" with Ranbir. Many people are shaming Mahira Khan on the social media for smoking.More news: Hurricane Maria Regains Strength After Passing Through Dominica
