It was supposed to be a happy occasion when Priyamani shared news of her engagement with longtime beau Mustufa Raj, on Facebook. Priyamani and Mustufa exchanged rings at a private ceremony in Bengaluru, in the presence of family and close friends.
The actress, who has an active social media presence, had expressed just how happy she was with this development in her private life.
However, things took a sour turn with Priyamani being trolled for choosing to marry a Muslim. Some social media users termed the match "love jihad". Others brought up her previous remarks about India being unsafe for women.
Not one to take the online hate lying down, Priyamani posted on Facebook on Monday, 30 May:
Her fan clubs also tweeted out their support for their actress.
Priyamani met Mustufa at an IPL match a few years ago. The couple is expected to tie the knot by the end of 2016.
