    New Delhi (Sputnik): Indian actress Esha Gupta has faced severe backlash on social media for her recent outburst against a Delhi-based hotelier, accusing him of indecent behaviour and “raping her with his eyes”.

    Esha, who had reportedly gone out with her friends for a meal, recently posted an Instagram story along with a series of tweets where she expressed her ordeal and talked about how the man made her feel immensely uncomfortable.

    However, some netizens were rather amused by her claims, with many taking digs at the actress and accusing her of making a hyperbole out of nothing.

    Some were flummoxed to think how the actress could accuse someone of rape when the person didn’t even touch her. Some even accused Esha of trying to drawn newsmen’s attention as she might have a movie project coming up.

    Some users chose to mock the Bollywood heartthrob, known for her roles films like “Jannat 2”, “Rustom”, and “Baadshaho”.

    One twitter user questioned how she figured out that the guy was staring at her without herself stealing a glance at him.

    However, amid the severe trolling, Esha also received support from some users who sympathised with her, saying that all accusations of harassment should be looked into properly.

    Esha, though, was not to be bogged down by the trolls and shot back at them, saying she wasn’t looking for attention, being a celebrity, but was rather standing up for the harassment that common girls in society face on a day-to-day basis.
