This year has seen a dominant trend of body shaming and slut-shaming of women across social media platforms.

As we wrap up 2017, the latest to join the rather long and ever-increasing list of troll victims that includes names such as Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Esha Gupta is Mandira Bedi.

The actor, who is known for her roles in Shanti and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and later as a cricket show host, posted a couple of pictures on Instagram and Twitter that have generated quite a buzz – and, unfortunately, not all are positive, reports the Indian Express.

The artsy photos that have an element of sensuality and risqué have garnered quite a bit of negative reactions by those indulging in moral policing.

While there were many who appreciated her ageless beauty there were also those who pointedly criticised her — calling her out for uploading photos that have been termed vulgar by some.
