Ever since Shahid Kapoor got married to a Delhi based girl Mira Rajput, rumours of his much younger pretty wife making her Bollywood debut have been circulating. While the couple has made it clear that that Mira will not be starring in any Bollywood project in near future— soon to be mother of two made her debut though a television commercial for an anti-ageing product. While hubby Shahid Kapoor is calling his wife a stunner, Mira Rajput Kapoor is being trolled mercilessly.
Mira unveiled the commercial through her Instagram account this Tuesday. The young celebrity wife shared the video captioned with: “Being a mother doesn’t mean you stop being yourself right? I took the #Olay #SkinTransformation #28Daychallenge Here’s my #Reborn story.. what’s yours? @olayindia” (sic)
In the video Mira recalls how post childbirth her skin became dull and patchy. She says, “I’ve always been a very hands-on mom, so you tend to forget yourself as a woman. The stress, the sleepless nights – my pregnancy glow just vanished.”
Naturally to remedy this Mira started using the anti-ageing product before her daughter Misha Kapoor’s first birthday and soon noticed the difference. Mira concluded the advertisement by stating that she is about to be a mother for the second time and she’s ready for the challenges it brings along.
As soon as the commercial was unveiled Shahid Kapoor wasted no time in calling his wife a stunner in the comments section. However, most of the general masses are not happy.
Many trolls have collectively voiced that there was no need for a young woman of mere 23 years of age to endorse an anti-ageing product.
An Instagrammer commented, “Right. 23 and anti-aging cream. What should I be doing? Getting mummified. 😐. Yet another ad that endorses how important external beauty is. Loving yourself be damned.”
Another Instagrammer questioned, “Being just in your twenties doesn’t mean you start endorsing anti-ageing products, right?”
While other comments were about Mira Kapoor’s lack of acting skills and exaggerated expressions.
In the meanwhile, Mira Rajput Kapoor is not the only celebrity to have made her debut through a commercial. Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda made her debut though a commercial for a jewellery brand alongside her father. The advertisement was soon pulled back due to incorrect representation of the banking community.
While Mira Rajput Kapoor’s commercial debut will likely not be pulled back but was it necessary for a young woman to endorse an anti-ageing product?
