When will our Bollywood beauties be independent from patriarchy and sl*t-shaming?
The newest mommy on the block, Lisa Haydon recently shared a picture of breastfeeding her baby boy. She wrote something really meaningful with the picture, but alas! Our audiences only focussed on the picture for obvious reasons and subjected her to non-stop trolls. However, she disabled her comment section and we believe for good.
Disha Patani is quite a fashionista. The actress, who keeps on putting up some sexy pictures from her magazine photoshoots, was recently body shamed for wearing a revealing dress during Filmfare Awards. The dress exposed a part of her breasts and ample cleavage, and that was enough for people to start posting hateful messages. However, the actress gave it back to the comments with a message that read, "Have been reading so many news lately on molestation and rape! When people in our country are worshiping goddesses what a shame for not being respectful enough to know certain boundaries that make you a human and not an animal! It’s easier to judge a woman on the basis of how much they cover up their skin, but it’s hard to accept your own cheap mentality where you can’t stop staring at those inappropriate areas which you are asking her to cover! Wake up and start accepting that we are not going to be anybody’s idea of an “Indian girl” don’t let your frustration destroy somebody’s life because you won’t be happy if it happens in your own family! Stop this hypocrisy and open your mind!"
Inspite of achieving immeasurable success globally, Priyanka Chopra still has to learn what to wear or what not to wear when meeting the PM of India, Narendra Modi. Well yes, some time back, the actress was trolled incessantly for wearing a dress which showed half of her legs as she sat with the PM Modi for a normal discussion. She was body shamed for wearing a short dress while meeting the PM, as people felt she should have worn something more covered. We failed to understand how is that anybody's business but then, this is how the society functions and thinks majorly, so we have nothing else but to deal with it. And that's what the actress did, she didn't give a damn to the trolls and instead put out another picture with mommy dearest, wearing an even shorter dress and captioned it as, "Legs for days". Perfect way to shut up the trolls right!
Esha Gupta has been putting up some really sexy pictures on her social media page. In one picture, she is seen holding just pomegranates in her hand, hiding her breasts while another picture showed her sleeping on a bed wearing nothing but socks, revealing her butt. She got body shamed and trolled terribly, so she disabled the comments option and continued posting more such pictures. Haha, what an idea Ms Gupta.
Deepika Padukone had recently put up a picture from a magazine photoshoot and she got trolled and body shamed on her weight. People called her malnourished, yet the actress didn't pay any heed to the haters and still continues to mesmerise with sexy pictures.
Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora divorced each other some months ago, and since then, the poor lady has been subjected to such weird comments. People have been accusing her of divorcing her husband to extract a good amount of alimony for her holidays and beauty trips. However, Malaika couldn't take such comments and wrote, "I do not indulge in such conversation coz it's below my dignity, but I jus had to @feelgoodfabric coz u certainly got to get ur damn facts right before spewing shit n slagging me off when u know nothing bout me.except sit n pass judgement on other people's life.i seriously suggest u find something to do with ur time coz u clearly have nothing better to do in life (sic)." Well said Malaika!
Soha Ali Khan
Last year, Soha Ali Khan had tweeted about the exit of Raghuram Rajan as RBI Governor. She had tweeted, "Profound loss for India that @RBIGov #RaghuramRajan has been forced to exit. He can only help those who want to help themselves. Shame." However, her views were not met with good response as many people trolled her and even questioned her knowledge of economics. But, Soha shut up the trolls with a single tweet that read, "LSE doesn’t stand for the London School of Entertainment and “dumb actresses” are citizens with valid opinions on economic policy #nuffsaid."
Fatima Sana Shaikh
'Dangal' actress Fatima Sana Shaikh had done a sexy photoshoot and posted some pictures in a one piece swimsuit. She got severely body shamed for those pictures and was even shamed on the basis of her Muslim religion. Such a shameful act by those who commented such nasty things. Yet, the actress unperturbed by all the negativity chose to ignore.
Kalki's filmography boasts of some unusual yet strong female characters and in real life too, the actress has been a really strong personality who has never shied away from sharing her worst experiences. We remember how she had once shared a disturbing incident about being sexually harassed at the tender age of 9, yet she rose against it and chose a path which wasn't too easy, but she went with her instinct. Even when she had a divorce with Anurag Kashyap, her decision was questioned by many, but she had the perfect reply as she said, "I believe in being myself every step of the way and not hiding my true self from society, whether that means getting a divorce because me and my husband didn’t want to pretend for other people, or wearing shorts because it’s a hot day or choosing a career which is unstable but creatively satisfying, or admitting to my weaknesses because learning from them has led to my strengths."
Some time ago, there was a major discussion on objectification of women in films and Richa Chadha rose against the discrimination and perfectly voiced her opinions by saying, “You feel discriminated when realising that even small decisions of daily life are controlled by men… for example, as a girl you cannot wear short clothes while travelling by public transport. So when you realise that you have to take these small decisions keeping in mind what men think, you know you are in a position of disadvantage. Since Bollywood is in India, where the society limits women’s choices like this, why should we blame only the industry?" Couldn't have said it any better!
