The story behind her post dates back to Thursday, to begin with, as Smriti had deleted Zoish’s picture after posting it but soon after, shared it again and this time, with a message on bullying.The picture was taken down because Zoish was bullied in school by a classmate for it after Smriti Instagrammed it. Zoish, thereafter, pleaded with her mother and requested Smriti to delete it. Hence, she obliged but with enough reluctance.”I deleted my daughter’s selfie yesterday coz an idiot bully in her class ,A Jha ,mocks her for her looks & tells his pals in class to humiliate her for how she looks in her mother’s insta post. My child pleaded with me ‘Ma please delete it, they are making fun of me’. I obliged coz I could not stand her tears,” Smriti wrote in her post.However, Smriti was not quite convinced about deleting the picture from the very beginning, and after doing so, decided against it. She shared the picture again and vowed that her “loving daughter and yes damn beautiful” will fight back.”Then I realised my act just supported the bully . So Mr Jha , my daughter is an accomplished sports person, record holder in Limca Books, 2 Nd Dan black belt in Karate, at the World Championships has been awarded bronze medal twice; is a loving daughter and yes damn beautiful. Bully her all you want , she will fight back,” Smriti, thus, signed off with a cutting riposte.advertisementThe picture in question is just a cute selfie of Zoish Irani:Smriti Irani’s post has gone viral with over 32,000 likes and counting at present.
