Singer Neha Bhasin has opened up about an incident that she experienced in the past because of her outfits. She turned emotional while recalling the incident on the reality show, Indian Pro Music League (IPML). She revealed that she was once asked to get off the stage as she was wearing shorts. At the Indian Pro Music League, Neha gave a terrific performance as she crooned the song Aisa Jaadu Dala Re and performed as well. She was raved by the audience and received a standing ovation for the performance. No doubt, Neha is a superb singer and she has given many chartbusters in her career but more often she falls prey to trolls either because of her body or her outfits.

After her performance, Neha narrated the incident when she was judged and slut-shamed on the basis of her outfits, rather than her talent.

She told IANS, “When systematically you have been dismissed because of the way your society works for years, there are people who start believing in that conversation. They start believing that maybe this is how things work. But for me, it just fuelled my hunger further. It fuelled my hunger to make it and make it in the way I want it to be.”

She also added that earlier she wanted to bring such a powerful performance to stage but couldn’t and today everyone accepted her irrespective of what she wears and it gives her immense joy.

Neha shared a lengthy post and the excerpt from the post read: “The length of a woman’s dreams cannot be measured by her clothes, her body, forced pretentious morality.”
