Lisa Ray is another name that has been added to the long list of Bollywood celebs who are being trolled on the social media. Recently, the actress shared beautiful picture of herself from her Toronto vacation and wrote, ‘As predicted, having a jolly time freezing my balls off in Toronto.‘ The actress claims that she is living her best life at the age of 46 especially after she has won the battle with cancer. However, this didn’t go down well with a Twitter user who called her ‘too old’ on the selfie she posted.
Unshaken by what people say, Lisa Ray hit back right at the user by putting out a strong word about her life and struggles and shut her down aptly. Lisa responded to the troll saying, "You're right. I'm old. Older than time, my boy. Perhaps, you will never grow up in your mind but your body will and it's a blessing to be wise, a cancer survivor and living my best life at 46. Unshakeably secure and happy in my spirit and body. Hope you can experience that one day."
Her tweet attracted a lot of attention and many celebrities even came out in support of the actress and slammed the Twitter user. TV actor Karanvir Bohra also schooled him for his 'irresponsible' comment, after which he issued an apology but also said that he doesn’t think he said anything wrong. He wrote, My Apologies if u were hurt but it was not my intention I just commented on what I felt and i didnt think this would be so outrageous U r life u R Thinking i think its a trend to troll a Person/Issue for Viral views and publicity i think i said nothing wrong”

Later, actors like Suniel Shetty and Ileana D'Cruz also applauded Lisa Ray for her brave reply and said she "put it up well." A Twitter user even wrote, "You go, girl. More power to you. Live your life the way you want to."
Honestly not hurt, but adding ‘too’ to ‘old’ is a symptom of society’s unrealistic expectations for women. Imp. to embrace age. This dialogue is good to highlight each’s state of mind. When I was young, I was different and craved guidance towards a wider, kinder perspective 🙏🏽 https://t.co/y7dBH368h8— Lisa Ray (@Lisaraniray) January 29, 2019
Thank you for your tweet. And I believe people are not reacting to you personally, but society’s dysfunctional attitude towards women and age in public spheres, speaking through you. Wish you well. https://t.co/y7dBH368h8— Lisa Ray (@Lisaraniray) January 29, 2019
