Malaika Arora, who recently shared a picture from her Thanksgiving dinner with friends, has been mercilessly trolled by Instagram users who found plenty to be offended by in her post, from her outfit to the apparently awkward placement of her hand. But mostly, people were outraged Malaika was celebrating an American festival. "Now they celebrate Thanksgiving in India? Stop being westernised," read a comment on Malaika's post. "Celebrities and people like her just want to copy everything from the Americans and show off," read another comment while a third user posted: "Thanksgiving, seriously? American slave mentality." Many of Malaika's followers have jumped to her defence, citing her right to celebrate any festival she chooses and pointing out that Diwali is celebrated globally. Malaika Arora, 45, celebrates several festivals, among them Diwali, Eid and Christmas as well as Halloween, another import from USA, so the trolls need not be surprised.
On Tuesday, Malaika Arora dined with her friends Preeta Sukhtankar, Delnaz Daruwala and Vahbiz Mehta and captioned her post: "So grateful for all the love, relationships and influences in my life. Happy Thanksgiving." On the dinner table, we spotted turkey, roast yam and other traditional Thanksgiving delicacies.
