Taapsee Pannu's SASSY Reply To A Troll For Her Beach Look Is Winning The Internet
Actress Taapsee Pannu, known for her strong and powerful roles on the silver screen, on Wednesday defended herself over social media in a quirky way after being slammed by a follower for wearing a bikini in her upcoming film "Judwaa 2".
Taapsee shared two photographs of herself on Twitter to promote new song "Aa toh sahi". Alongside the images, the "Pink" star wrote: "When you are against the tide, it's you who needs to stand up for yourself… But don't forget the smile. ‘Judwaa 2'. ‘Aa Toh Sahi'."
However, one Twitter user didn't seem to like her in a bikini, and wrote a post in Hindi.
"In our country, we have freedom of expression, so why don't you remove the remaining clothes also. Your brother must be feeling proud of you after watching this."
In response to that, Taapsee wrote: "Sorry, Bhai hai nahi varna pakka puch ke bataati. Abhi ke liye behen ka answer chalega (Sorry I don't have a brother, otherwise I would've asked him and told you. But for now, a sister's reply will work)?"
Taapsee will next be seen in "Judwaa 2", directed by David Dhawan. It also features Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez. The film will release on September 29.
In the last few months, actresses Fatima Sana Shaikh and Soha Ali Khan had been shamed for their outfits - which the self-appointed moral police of the social media deemed inappropriate for the occasion. Fatima posted a picture of herself sunbathing at a beach on Instagram and folks were outraged because she posted the picture during Ramzan. In case of Soha Ali Khan, the Internet was upset with her for wearing a sari for her baby shower (in Bengali style) which coincided with Eid celebrations. "Shame on you, you are not Muslim," read one tweet.
Actresses Deepika Padukone was also shamed for the outfit she wore in a photoshoot. She replied by posting more (and similar pictures) without any comment. Similarly, Priyanka Chopra was criticised for wearing a short dress when she met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin.
