She also had a makeover done at a salon for which she had received praise and love from the internet. It appears she has now walked the runway in a fashion show. Pictures of a heavily made-up Ranu are surfacing online and garnering severe backlash from desi Twitter.
Some of the pictures showed Ranu with an eerily fair complexion due to the makeup. Some said it’s ‘an extended Halloween look’ while others couldn’t stop schooling her for makeup choice.
On the other hand, some also believe that it wasn’t Ranu’s fault completely and have come forward in her support.
This isn’t the first time that Ranu Mondal is at the receiving end of flak from Twitter. Recently, she was slammed for misbehaving with a fan in a viral video.
