Five days after the Justin Bieber concert, which drew a number of celebrities, Urvashi Rautela continues to be trolled on social media for expressing her admiration for the international pop sensation. The actress began receiving hate messages and was trolled on social media for supporting Bieber, “I am an ardent fan of Justin Bieber and his songs whether it is Sorry, Baby or Right. He has been a huge influence on me from my childhood days and growing up years. He is also close to my heart. I find his life story really inspiring. Incidentally, we both share our birthday, too,” she said.

Urvashi feels she was censured on social media for booking a VVIP table worth Rs 5 lakh close to the stage where Justin performed, “A number of people condemned me for spending that kind of money. They felt it would have been a better idea to donate it to the needy, but why are the two things being mixed up. Going to a concert of a celebrated performer, whom you adore and whose work inspires you and donating to the needy, are two different things. As for working for the needy, I also have a foundation where I do my bit for charity,” she added.

Urvashi says she missed out on the Bieber concert in Dubai, “That’s the reason I kept myself free for his Mumbai concert. I kept in touch with his team,” she concluded.
