A photo posted on Instagram by Priya Bhavani Shankar, in which she was wearing little transparent dress, has not gone down well with the ‘moral police’.
With few slamming the actress for the outfit, she hit them back with a few posts. “Am surprised how people are trying to save culture by zooming in and out my picture,” she said.
A follower said: “Sutham had huge hopes for you… No more a dream girl.. Hoping it wont get any worse thou.”
To this, Priya replied: “Thank you very much but I don’t want to be a dream girl to a man of such filthy judgements. All the best to find another hopeful dream girl.”
To this, the user posted: “The true thing is we the loyal people’s u have those who support this image are the filthy one’s… This ain’t about being Orthodox it’s juz we care for you sadly you don’t see that.. Anyways you have your freedom…”
And again, the actress wrote: “This is definitely not a reply with head weight. Am just trying to resist people like you deciding how I should hold my values and culture! Am surprised how people are trying to save culture by zooming in and out my picture.
A little piece of semi transparent cloth has taken a toll to this culture. I don’t see anything so alarming in my picture. Seriously? You think people like you zooming it and picking nonsense and speaking nonsense and judging others are holding the culture high? With all due respect let me say loud and polite I don’t see anything screwing your so called culture and I can handle my values by my own than through these comments worried about my 1.5 inch of semi transparent cloth. Thank you very much.”
