Shilpa Shetty hits back at a troll who makes fun of her for distributing ‘cheap bananas’ at an old age home
Shilpa Shetty celebrated her son, Viaan’s birthday day before yesterday. The lady held a small birthday party for his friends from the Bollywood fraternity but before that she visited an old age home with her son and mom, Sunanda. There she was seen distributing fruits and sweets to them. The actress put up the video on Instagram saying it gave her immense joy to do something for the elderly and how they needed a bit of our time and attention. She says the tradition was started by her late father and how she kept it up. However, it is not unusual for people to consider celebrities’ philanthropic activities as publicity stunt. A woman trolled Shilpa for distributing the cheapest available fruit to the elderly and ‘broadcasting’ it. The troll wrote: “Distributing the cheapest fruit available and broadcasting on Instagram. Doesn’t seem so simple. Stop this show off.” Shilpa replied that it was a tradition for her to go to the old age home and that showing off was never her idea. She also stated that she served them a full course meal later.
