Last year, Nikesha Patel made headlines when she had done a bikini photoshoot. Many users commented on her post accusing her of trying to get attention to bag a Bollywood project and called her Indian Kim Kardashian for flashing her big butt.

After reading all the hate comments, Patel gave a befitting reply to the trolls and tweeted saying, "Yes I have a #bigbutt" while sharing a selfie of her left profile.
