Soha Ali Khan and her husband Kunal Khemu are expecting their first baby. Sharing a glimpse from her traditional baby shower, the actress posted a picture on Twitter and Instagram with her husband at home adorned with colourful balloons all around. Glowing in a pretty pink silk sari, the 38-year-old wrote: “It isn’t a party without balloons!”

No sooner had she posted it, people started trolling her for donning a sari and taunted her by saying she’s not a Muslim anymore. Ignoring the fact that she had shared a happy moment from her baby shower ceremony, people took digs thinking it was from the Eid celebrations. People posted nasty comments, with some stressing on how she had “turned into a Hindu” and that it doesn’t even “look like it’s Eid”.

Take a look at the picture she shared on Twitter.

And here is what one user replied to her post.

But, there were many others who came to defend her.

And, people were even more brutal on Instagram after looking at her dolled up in the beautiful sari and bindi. Here’s the actual post featuring her ethnic avatar on the photo sharing networking site.

While one user wrote: “Dislike Soha Ali khan. Wdf image wearing . I swear she’s not a Muslim ! Can’t even say it’s Eid,” another one went on to say: “Inko sharm aati hai eid likhne me shame on you soha ali khan you r not a muslim.” And, if that was not enough, a lot of people joined their troop and fired a series of comments. However, a lot of her fans stood up for her saying it’s her “right to wear” what she wants to. One user wrote: “So what you wanted her to wear.. It’s India and in every Indian state culture I’d different.. She is free to wear whatever her wish.. And Saree is Indian traditional clothing,” and another one said: “Bengali Muslims dress up like this… I think she’s allowed to wear what she wants.”

Sigh. It’s sad how clothes have been dragged into the religious battle. What are your thoughts on it? Tell us in the comments below.

      Such people can never be humane. Wonder what he/they would be teaching and treating his family like. Wish Gauri and Sharukh comment to such people being the so called Baadshah of Bollywood. Really strange for people to comment like that, can't understand which breed they are from. Let everyone live happily in whichever way they want to lead their life without hurting others.

          Elders in my family have been saying for a long time that "India's Secularism is practised ONLY by Hindus..... not by Muslims and Christians who are also Indian Citizens. In the last TEN years, the situation has got worse. Most of our Muslim friends and neighbours do not share Diwali, Nav Rathri or Holy Festivities with us any longer, as they used to. No acceptance of Prashad, at home or at the office Diwali Mitthai distribution, such is their prejudice against Hinduism. I am not surprised at the trolling of Soha Ali Khan over her pink saree.

                These people have no problem if Hindu girl marries a Muslim man. But if reverse thing happens, they all go ballestic. Truly secular I guess !

                  Her mother was a hindu and remained as Sharmila. No Hindu bothered then . Whay muslims should be heart broken when her daughter married a Hindu . These are shear nonsense. When rihma married an old fellow saif, none of the Hindus expressed concern. Ignore these . India is secular at heart except the majority of muslims who wear by their religion and not country .
