Namrata Shirodkar is celebrating the release and early success of her actor husband Mahesh Babu's recent film Maharshi with her family and close friends. Pictures from their cosy get-together are all over the internet and on one of the photos and in the comments section of one of the pictures, an Instagram user wrote: "Namarta, why don't you put some make-up. Are you suffering with... depression." The former Miss India shut the troll with her empowering reply, which read: "You might love women with make-up... maybe you should follow someone who is always made up and suits your criteria! You are not going to find it on this page!! So maybe you should get off it... sincere request."
