• After her web-series “Mind The Malhotras” released, she was trolled on the social media platform whereby she was asked to consider getting botox done. Mini replied, “Thank you…and no. I will not use botox. It’s time the world got comfortable with the fact that women age, their talent does not. Be happy that feisty lead roles are being written for women in their 40s. Would you have rather a 20-year-old playing a 40-year-old Shefali.”
