A while back, singer Sona Mohapatra was trolled online after she shared pictures of her wearing a swimsuit at a beach vacation. Now, actress Donal Bisht who has worked on TV shows like ‘Ek Deewaana Tha’, ‘Roop – Mard Ka Naya Swaroop’, and ‘Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji’ is also on the receiving end of negative comments on her photos.
Hindustan Times quoted her saying, “Clothes can’t explain a woman’s character! Never judge a woman by her clothes! Judge her by her heart.”
“My choice of clothes is no one’s business. And writing obscene comments on bikini pictures is nothing but a reflection of the pitiful mindset the trolls hold. Women should be allowed to wear what they want, and whatever they feel comfortable in, without being judged… And I’m not the first person on the planet who wore a bikini! Why make a big deal about it?”
She added, “My mother does get upset at times and even asks me to take down a particular picture after it gets ‘not-very-good’ comments. Given our profession, we know the reality, so we try to stay unbothered to an extent but there are people close to us, who aren’t part of the industry, who get really worried about these comments.”
“I try and focus on the brighter side of life always, scroll past any negative comments. It’s important to focus on feel-good content. But yes when things go overboard like it did this time I do feel the need of addressing it and put my point of view forward once and for all. Now if things still don’t work out I might consult the cybercrime cell. At the end of the day, if one hasn’t done anything wrong then it should not bother them anyway.”
