There is a lot of frustration, says Ishaan Khatter on criticism against Mira Rajput’s beauty cream ad

Mira Rajput would not have expected so much criticism against her television commercial debut but at least her family is standing in support of her. Shahid Kapoor’s wife faced a lot of flak online for promoting an anti-ageing beauty brand at the age of 23.

However, her brother-in-law, Ishaan Khatter, came to her rescue. In an interview to India Today, Ishaan said that those who criticised Mira are frustrated. “There is a lot of frustration. There are a lot of people who are overly judgemental on the Internet. But having said that everyone has a right to opinion. For me, what’s important is to be inspired and keep moving to grow as an artist and as a person. I don’t find negativity helpful in that. So I try and keep myself away from it,” he said.

In the advertisement, Mira talks of how after giving birth, her skin has suffered. She says, “I’ve always been a very hands-on mom, so you tend to forget yourself as a woman. The stress, the sleepless nights – my pregnancy glow just vanished.” However, Mira was heavily trolled for endorsing an anti-aging cream in her early 20s and for her ‘fake acting’. An Instagrammer asked her to “… take care of your puppy (daughter) first and fix your double standards” while another stated, “she’s literally 23 why does she need olay”. Some asked her, “If at 23 you need Olay @mira.kapoor then what will you use at 40?”
