Mandana Karimi trolled for posting a video in a bikini during Ramadan
The internet can be a torturous place for public figures, thanks to the open as well as anonymous trolls that are sitting on the other side of the screen and passing uncalled judgments. Female actors, who are especially at the receiving end more than frequently, give it back powerfully. Actor Mandana Karimi has now fallen prey to such virtual slammers after she posted a picture of herself wearing a bikini.
Her 'summer ready' avatar, featuring her in a printed bikini, is indeed pretty. But many of her followers decided to slam her for flaunting her body. While some just turned moral police, suggesting she cover herself, some lashed out at her for posing in a bikini during Ramadan.

We do see the compliments, but the criticism was harsh as well!
Quite as we expected, the free-spirited woman gave no damn and went on doing what she wanted to. Shortly after, we stumbled upon another video of her, dipping into the pool. Now that's how you beat the heat!
It's been a while since we have seen Mandana in a film. She last appeared in the adult comedy Kya Kool Hai Hum 3 alongside Aftab Shivdasani and Tusshar Kapoor. She also appeared in Xuanzang, an Indian-Chinese film released in 2016. Popular TV show Ishqbaaz featured her in a negative role.
On the personal front, Mandana has had a tough time. She married Gaurav Gupta when her career was at a steady pace, and allegedly put herself amid an abusive environment caused by both the husband and her mother-in-law. Although she was willing to work her marriage out, Gaurav reportedly did not reciprocate it.
“It took me three months to get back into shape. I had always been strong and independent. It was unfortunate that what I thought about marriage (it didn’t turn out to be like that). But this doesn’t make my ex-husband or me a bad person. In the beginning, I would question ‘why me?’ Now, I know it’s just life and could happen to anybody," she said, in an earlier interview.
