Actress Parineeti Chopra has deleted an Instagram post after it received a flood of angry comments.
On Tuesday, the 28-year-old actress Instagrammed a video of herself walking across a Dubai beach under an umbrella held over her head by a male assistant.
The assistant was also carrying three bags, one of which looked like it could have been Parineeti's handbag. The post provoked sarcastic comments about why the actress couldn't carry her own umbrella.
"Holding your own umbrella wouldn't make you any less of a star," read one comment while another user added: "The umbrella must have been a 100 kilos."
Parineeti Chopra, currently busy filming Meri Pyaari Bindu, shed several kilos recently and one commentator speculated that her much publicized workout regimen was aimed only at generating headlines.
Parineeti Chopra appears to be in Dubai on work and is the second Bollywood star to visit the country this year after Sushant Singh Rajput who was there last week.
This innocuous picture that she posted in lieu of the offending video has also been met with disdain in the comments thread. "Where is your co-star the umbrella man?" one user asks.
