While celebrities have numerous fans who love them madly, the fame also has a flipside, one of which is people hating them be it for their behaviour, acting or comments.  

Though some celebs choose to ignore their haters, there are a few like Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, who have had the guts to retalaite in an apt manner. They might not have literally fought with the haters, but have found smart ways to give it back. 

Here are a few Bollywood stars who have hit back in smart and effective ways:

 Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt's "Genius of the Year" video got over 1.8 million views in a single day. It was regarding the jokes made over her IQ after her debut in the fourth season of Karan Johar's show "Koffee With Karan."

The "Highway" girl shut everybody's mouth through the viral video, in which she proved to be a real star. 

Sonakshi Sinha

While Sonakshi Sinha's entry in Bollywood brought her success, she was also criticised for her curvy figure. On this the bold actress answered her haters on Instagram:

"To all those who keep commenting on my weight, whether it's a full picture, or a close up where you can't see jack. Take a good look at this picture. Now get this: 1) this ain't ever gonna be me. 2) get over it. 3) I wish u could see which finger I hold up for shallow and idiotic people like yourself." RIP Haters."

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone really proved that stars also have privacy and self-respect. When a leading newspaper posted a photo of her cleavage, the actress penned down an open letter slamming the daily. 

Katrina Kaif

Katrina Kaif also wrote an open letter to her haters when she was targeted with bulk of controversies due to a leaked photo of her in a bikini on the beaches of Ibiza.

The actress shut the mouth of people with her point of view.

Shah Rukh Khan

King Khan knows how to deal with media and criticism. He has always been upfront and has fought back his haters with dignity.
