Another shameful incident happened on the social media proving however hard we try to act sensible, there will be misogynists and certified arseholes who will keep bringing the society back to the sick standards it tried raising from. Just like any other TV actress, Sonarika Bhadoria, popular for her role of goddess Parvati in the TV show Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev was enjoying her recent trip to Mauritius and shared a few photographs on her Instagram handle.
A few hypocrites slammed the actress horribly, asking her to behave and wear 'decent' clothes since she played the role of a Hindu goddess once. The 23-year-old has a message for her haters and we couldn't agree more with her.
Some of the comments were so offending, the 23-year-old terrified actress decided to delete the photos instead of replying the disgusting views of a few people.
"I thought today's generation is mature enough to separate an actor's personal life from their professional life and they would understand that we also have our own life. But that did not happen. Just because I am a girl and played a goddess you cannot hide behind your TV screens and write whatever you want to in the name of freedom of expression. They say it is part and parcel of a celebrity's life but there is a limit to everything. I am not God, I have emotions and I do feel bad."
She continues, "We all know what a hypocritical society we live in, don't we? Gurmeet (Choudhary) is a dear friend of mine and he played Lord Ram some years ago. Immediately after that he did a show called Geet, in which he was shown with his bare body and girls drooled over him and men looked up to him for fitness. Similarly, with actor Mohit Raina (who plays Shiva) a lot of girls used to call on the show and call him hot Shiva and sexy Shiva. S**t shaming a female actor for wearing certain kind of clothes is not acceptable. At least not in today's day and age."
"You know that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when something bad happens? I can't even put it in words but it was a very bad feeling. The entire day my phone was buzzing with my friends calling and supporting me. You can't expect a woman to wear a saree or salwar kameez and go to a beach or swimming pool."
The characters played by an actor on screen have nothing to do with their personal lives. The society needs to act more sensible and less judgemental.
