Pooja shares new post

She captioned the post, “Have a greater appreciation for freedom post my stint in the #BiggBosOTT2 house. Implore the powers that be to please come together & use their collective might to free Joymala.”
A person tries to troll Pooja
In the comment section, a person wrote, “Your father is telling tales of stark naked Parveen Babi ran after him in dark night. To please his ego. Are you sure Mahesh Bhatt never used your body to satisfy his ego? What an irony ohh God. People can use someone’s innocent feelings to please their egos and mights. And then move freely around calling themselves sons of God.”
Pooja responds to the Instagram user
Pooja replied, “May God bless you and rescue you from the blind hate that you choose to spew. Wish you the best.” A fan of Pooja commented, “Ignore such negative comments mam we all love you.” “You are an inspiration to many people … keep handling things like a queen,” said an Instagram user.
Pooja’s fans react
“Shame on you to write this about someone’s father. If you do not like something that someone says, you should not choose to say such filthy words for a daughter and her father,” said another person. A comment read, “If you can’t say anything good don’t say anything at all.”
“Smile and grow in front of your haters, it kills them you are an inspiration to many people.” “How can you degrade someone on a social platform especially you being a female to a female? If someone not saying it doesn’t mean you have the right to say whatnot. Please refrain yourself from it and don’t spread hatred,” wrote a social media user.
