A few days back, actress Taapsee Pannu was trolled on Twitter for posting her picture in a Bikini. Though this is not the first time when a celebrity is trolled because of some random reasons, commenting on someone’s choice of outfit is still not acceptable. And, it seems that it has become a habit of Twitterati in India to troll someone on the grounds of the unacceptable moral policing, no matter if it is because of the outfit or anything else.

And the reactions which she got were totally unacceptable:

Pity on you. Be a good girl and make your parents proud 👍👍👍 — Aparna (@Your_cutie_pie) September 13, 2017
And, Taapsee’s replies were simply epic.
Also, in an interview with IANS she said:
“Indian women, in general, have always been told by someone or the other what to do or what not to do. From the time we are born, we are always told, ‘This is what you are supposed to do’, without even asking what we want to do. These people just can’t take the fact that how suddenly a woman can have her own opinion… I don’t feel shy of being an Indian or following Indian couture. In olden times, people wore minimum clothes. Actresses used to wear really small blouses, bikini blouses and people used to worship (them). Suddenly, it is considered not good and against culture. I always believe that if you have the body to wear a bikini and if you are confident about it, then go ahead and flaunt it. There is nothing wrong in it.”
More power to you, Taapsee!
