After actress Shilpa Shetty was trolled for getting pictures clicked at a Dubai millionaire's personal zoo now, actress Preity Zinta has been targeted by the social media trolls for sharing a picture on Instagram, in which she can be seen caressing a lion cub in South Africa. She captioned the picture: "Making new friends in amazing South Africa. If this is not magical then I don't know what is." Some Instagram users were 'impressed' while the others slammed Preity, like they slammed Shilpa Shetty. One user commented on Preity's post saying that the animals are usually drugged and that "this must have been a beautiful experience for you, just not for the cub." Unlike Shilpa Shetty, who deleted the Instagram posts
, Preity chose to revert and enlighten the fan (as they say in a later comment) that this particular cub was "not drugged, just a bit sleepy because of the heat." She added: "Not everything in life is a conspiracy or negative. Please learn to appreciate things before jumping to conclusions."
Here's a screenshot of Preity's defence posted in the comments section:
Some fans corroborated Preity's version and added: "They are always kept along with people in the nursery and are hence habituated to people around them. Once they are old enough they are let into the wild."
Preity Zinta has featured in several Bollywood films such as Dil Se
, Kal Ho Naa Ho
and Dil Chahta Hai
. She was last seen in 2013's Ishkq in Paris
, which she also produced. She is awaiting the release of Bhaiyyaji Superhitt
, which went in floors in 2014.
