'Kumkum Bhagya' actress Shikha Singh, who took a break from showbiz after welcoming a baby girl last year, on Wednesday received a barrage of hate comments on social media after she shared a topless picture of herself.
Days after sharing a picture of herself breastfeeding her baby, Shikha took to Instagram to share a stunning photo. It shows the actress lying on a bed holding a pillow which has been strategically placed to hide her modesty.
She's seen wearing a red lip in the picture.
"Theme of the night was 'Red'," she wrote in the caption.

While Shikha's friends from the industry took to the comments section to leave compliments, a section of netizens seemed rather displeased.
A user wrote: "Ye expect nahi kiya tha apse."
"Yeah sahi nahi hai," commented another.
"Shame on you," read a comment on the post.
Others left comments like - "what happened to you?" "Not expected from uhhhh," "highly disappointed."
Last week, Shikha shared a picture of herself breastfeeding her daughter Alyna and wrote in the caption: "We live in a society where a mother catches less hell for giving her toddler a coke than she does for giving her toddler Breastmilk. I am working to change that in my lifetime - Deanna Decker #goalofourlife #imlovingit #beyourownkindofmom"
Several celebrities lauded her for doing her bit in 'normalising' breastfeeding in public.
Actress Supriya Shukla wrote, "Superb shikha... I have fed my daughters in malls... Restaurants...Car. Nothing is more important than my child n her feeding...Luv u"
Ekta Kaul commented, "Love it too.. posting about it too.."
Ankita Bhargava Patel's comment read: "Totally !!! I too am working towards Normalising what is the most NORMAL thing to do ! Still have ppl close to me asking me to stop breastfeeding ! Including The Gynacs and Peds doc
"Funny isnt it ! Its ok to STEAL milk from a lactating ANIMAL and feed ur baby…. But its not ok to feed ur own baby with ur OWN MILK when they become toddlers ? More power to YOU and all the breeastfeeding Moms out there !"
Shikha Singh and her pilot husband Karan Shah welcomed their first child in June, 2020. They have named their daughter Alayna Singh Shah.
Shikha Singh is best known for her role in Ekta Kapoor's 'Kumkum Bhagya'. The popular Zee TV show starred Sriti Jha, Shabir Ahluwalia and Leena Jumani in lead roles.
