The internet forgets nothing. And when it comes to tales about Bollywood celebs, it’s hard to obliterate the history. Thus, it is advisable for our Bollywood celebs to be a little EXTRA careful about what they say, promote and share.
Nonetheless, we have compiled a list of incidents when netizens called out Bollywood celebs for their double standards. Celebs? Maybe watch out next time.
1. Alia Bhatt
Case number one for double standards in Bollywood is- when Alia Bhatt was trolled to endorse sugary products. In an old video, Alia talked about how we should not consume sugar but have it in different forms like fruits. But this brand endorsement shows otherwise.
