On October 8, Masaba had tweeted 'Yes!' in response to a tweet about the firecracker ban.
She was then trolled for it.
Her powerful response to trolls, however, has been 'liked' over 1,300 times since it was posted just three hours ago on Twitter. On Instagram, it has garnered almost 6,000 'likes'.
Author Chetan Bhagat, who, incidentally, had tweeted against the firecracker ban, was among the first to tweet in support of Masaba.
