This is not the first time that Anushka has been trolled on social media. Earlier in 2018, she was heavily trolled for accompanying the Team India during India’s tour of England in August-September. The Indian actress was also trolled after the release of her films Sui Dhaaga and Shah Rukh-starrer Zero in 2018.
