The social media networks have become a very strong medium of communication between celebrities and their fans. Because of this, the celebs ensure that they are pretty consistent in posting their photos, videos and updates about their professional as well as personal lives in order to keep their fans happy and excited.
Bollywood actress Daisy Shah doesn’t need any introduction and we have seen in Salman Khan starrer “Jai Ho”, “Race 3” and “Hate Story 3”. Recently, she took to social media and posted a photo in which she is seen smiling while holding a book. However, she had no idea that having a big smile on her face while posing with this particular book will make her an object of mockery and abomination on the virtual world.
First of all, take a look at the pic:
The book that Daisy is holding is “A Thousand Splendid Suns” by author Khaled Hosseini and it is based on the story of an illegitimate kid who suffers a lot of agony and abuse in her life. It is impossible to smile while reading this book and the social media users soon understood that Daisy Shah knows nothing about the book, she is holding it just for giving a pose and this made them quite angry.
There were zero (0) comedy scenes in my copy of 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' 🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺🥺 pic.twitter.com/ezBSsKtPfW

Twitterati soon started trolling the actress for her illogical and insensible behaviour and asked her to hold the correct book which at least goes right with the pose. Here are some selected reactions:

I finished this book within a week and I still remember everytime I read it I feel sorry for the protagonist girl who had to suffer a lot, how she will escape, how will be her life in future.. I read this some 8 years ago and I am still that sensitive,this is a no nonsense book

What person in their right mind reads a Khaled Hosseini book and laughs as if reading an article written by Rahul Gandhi.
Also those legs look like floaters.

If at all this book makes u think n feel sad idk what is she laughing about or is it just to look smart she was given a book to hold without any knowledge of what the book is about 😒
This is one of my fav books

Let me assume she's laughing at the photographer. But the sadness in this book won't even let you laugh like this to anything funny around you.

This is one of the saddest books. It leaves one disturbed for a few days after reading it. I Probably didn't read it right, it seems

When the actress realized that she was getting trolled, she made a tweet in which she tried to school the trollers, saying that they have no idea about her, whether she is a reader or not. She also said that she smiled because of the conversation that she was having with someone, adding that she doesn’t care about what other people think. However later on, she deleted the tweet.
Here is what she wrote in the tweet, “You don’t know me or my life. Am I a reader or am I using things as a prop or was I also having a conversation with someone at the very same time or maybe not. So you know what, make your own stories about whatever you want.”
Nevertheless after some time, Daisy Shah took to Instagram stories and apologized to all those who got offended. She said that she was laughing on a joke cracked by someone and the photo was posted just because of the happiness that it was showcasing. She added that as she has read 4-5 pages, she has realized that it is a very intense story and she will be careful in the future. Daisy also says that she will ask her team to remove the photo and also makes it clear that she has not apologized because she got trolled, she apologized because she felt the pain after reading the book.
