Bollywood actress Neena Gupta took to her social media account and posted a video slamming trolls for judging women based on their "sexy" clothing choices. The veteran actress, who was dressed in a stunning plunging neckline gown, said,
"Mujhe ye isliye post krna hai kunki aisa lagta hai jo log aise sexy kapade phente hai, jaise meine abhi phene hai vo aise hi hote hai bekaar ke. Lekin mein bataa du meine Sanskrit mein MPhil kiya hua hai, aur bhi bhut kuch kiya hua hai. Toh kapade dekhke kissi ko judge nahi krna chaiye."
She further remarked,
"Troll krne valo, samjh lo. (I want to post this video because the ones who wear such sexy clothes like right now I am wearing. Let me tell you that I have done MPhil in Sanskrit and have done many other great things in life.. so we should not judge anyone based on their clothing. For those who troll, stop doing it)."
Neena’s video has garnered a lot of appreciation from netizens. “You are amazing,” a social media user commented. “I have always loved wearing a saree and making a bun with a big bindiya.. From the age of 22 till date I love wearing sarees.. I was always called ” bahenji” in my office and made fun of.. But theek Hai.. Jiski jitni soch.. Uski utni hi pahoch.. Who cares,” another one wrote.
A third one said, “Itne pyaar se kabhi kisine trolls ko daanta nahi hoga. U are too sweet." Apart from her followers, Kiara Advani, Tahira Kashyap, Archana Puran Singh, Sunil Grover, and many others liked her post.
Last year, Neena received criticism for paying a personal visit to Gulzar's house, dressed in white and blue shirt-shorts, to present the lyricist with a copy of her autobiography.
Meanwhile, Neena will next be seen with her daughter in the second season of 'Masaba Masaba.' She's also working on a song called 'Goodbye.'
