Being a superstar comes at its own price. Your privacy is stomped on and you’re made into a public figure, whether you like it or not.
A lot of celebs might get intimidated by the paparazzi making headlines out of every word they utter. While they often let it go while dealing with the most senseless questions imposed by reporters, there are times when they decide to fight back.
Here are 10 celebs who made it clear that there’s no messing with them for no reason.
Captain of Indian Women’s Cricket Team and the highest run-scorer of T20, Mithali Raj was once asked about her favourite male cricketer by a reporter. To which she gave a befitting reply by cross questioning the reporter.
Reporter: Who is your favourite male cricketer?
Mithali: Do you ask the same question to any of the male cricketers that who their favourite female cricketer is?
Alia is often trolled for her weak general knowledge. With the fantastic AIB video, she proved she could take jokes on herself but when a journalist tried to reduce her to a mere meme, she knew exactly how to own him.

Kareena: But that’s such a dated perception.
Katrina knows very well how to shut down negative comments.

During the red carpet of Emmy Awards, Priyanka Chopra wore a red dress and looked absolutely stunning. When a journalist asked Priyanka about her date, PC killed the journalist in the sweetest way possible.
