Mumbai: The inauguration of the recent Kolkata International Film Festival provided the rare instance when some of the biggest stars of the country like Kajol, Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Hassan, Amitabh Bachchan, among others came together on the same platform.
While the photos on stage during the ceremony made headlines, another one backstage also made news for mixed reasons.
An ecstatic Kajol couldn’t contain her excitement as she posed for a picture with Bachchan and Haasan.
Selfie time with two legends ..... couldn’t resist 😜 pic.twitter.com/DaNmcckHe8— Kajol (@KajolAtUN) November 10, 2017
While the smiles on the three actors’ faces made it a beautiful picture, Kajol’s caption on the picture calling it a ‘selfie’, gave Twitteratti a chance to troll her.
Some of them joked how it could be a selfie, with few of them pointing out how it couldn't be one because her hands were on the actor’s waists.
Haasan, however, took to Twitter late Sunday in support of the actress, asking trolls to spare her and that he was not a fan of selfies, though he was a fan of the two of them.
Please spare Kajolji. I an not a fan of selfies. Though I am a fan of them both. Troll not a kind guesture. pic.twitter.com/lfO3WfXPYB— Kamal Haasan (@ikamalhaasan) November 12, 2017
Surprising though, how the most active of the three on social media, Amitabh Bachchan, didn’t have a reaction to this yet, maybe we can expect a line or two about it in his next blog post.
