Hina Khan opens up on her debut film ‘Hacked’, says ‘people didn’t watch in theatres because it didn’t have a big star’s daughter’

After the Thanneer Mathan Dinangal actress Anaswara Rajan posted a picture in an off-the-shoulder top and shorts on her social media handle, the actress was flooded with slut-shaming comments. She was abused for her “inappropriate” dress code at the age of 18. 

Well, the young diva gave a fitting reply to the haters by sharing a few more pictures of herself in shorts and she wrote “Don’t worry about what I’m doing. Worry about why you’re worried about what I’m doing.” Several actors including Nimisha Sajayan, Surabhi Santosh and Divya Prabha aextended their support for Anaswara in the comment box too.

The actress’ response to haters has triggered a interesting campaign on social media leaving several top Mollywood actresses posting pictures of themselves showing off their legs with the hashtag #WomenHaveLegs. Rima was the first to extend her solidarity with the Anashwara. The actress shared a throwback picture of herself in a swimsuit showing off her well-toned legs. She captioned, “Surprise surprise!!! Women have legs #ladies #showthemhowitsdone.”

Following her, actors Anarkali Marikar, Ahaana Krishna, Anna Ben and Kani Kusruti took to their respective social media handles to express their solidarity with Anaswara Rajan by posting pictures of them showing off their legs. 

“Show em off girls ! They’re yours !”, wrote Anarkali Marikar. Meanwhile Ahaana wrote a lengthy note, “Posting a really nice picture of me wearing a tiny dress , showing most of my legs to take attendance of the number of creeps who will line up in attention in my comment box to post third-rate comments 🙂 2 things.

Firstly , what I wear isn’t your business. What anybody wears isn’t your business. Your business is just your business. Probably you don’t have enough of it , so you try and poke your nose into other people’s business. I will wear Shorts , Sari , Shirt or a Swim-suit .. it’s not your license to question my character. Neither is it my oppurtunity to prove my own character. So , WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS , NOT MY CLOTHES ??

Secondly , as far as I know .. legs , stomach , hands etc .. they are all the same, be it in the body of a man or a woman. I can’t see any difference that is so important that it justifies the difference between the kind of comments that make it to the comment box of a man in little clothes and that of a girl. If a man shows his well toned body , it’s Inspiring , Mass and Frickin’ Hot. When a girl does the same , she looks like she’s ready for Sex? She’s Shameless? She’s an Attention Seeker? She’s trying to turn people on for work?

Pick up this flamboyant display of patriarchy and discard it in the first dust-bin you can find around you. Me posting a picture in a super short dress has only 1 meaning – I like that picture and I felt like sharing it on my own social media profile. Any other meaning that you derive out of it is nothing but a reflection of the unfortunate situation of your life and the things you lack in it.

Gross mindsets might not change way too much. But the license to publicly speak out one’s gross mindset can be shut down. Call out slut-shamers. Call out dirty patriarchy. And stop giving a damn about what a random person has to comment on your clothes. Do these 3 things and slowly but surely , creeps who want to say creepy things will be so scared to spit out the poison that they will learn to keep it within themselves.

I’d like to sum up this slightly long post with a quote I read recently on Social Media – ” Oh my favourite season will be the Fall of Patriarchy ?? “.

Recently, when Suriya wrote an open letter against holding NEET exams in the wake of the suicide of three Tamil Nadu students, he unwittingly invited the anger of a High Court judge. The judge appealed to the Chief Justice of the Madras High Court to initiate contempt proceedings against the ‘Bandobast’ actor.

On Friday, the court opined that Suriya’s comments were not a contempt of court. However, it said, the actor’s comments were “unnecessary and unwarranted”.

After the HC’s observations, the actor took to Twitter to put out a statement, thanking it for not initiating contempt proceedings. “I am deeply moved by the institutional magnanimity of the Indian judiciary. I have always held our judiciary in the highest esteem, which is the only hope for upholding the constitutional rights of our people. I am humbled and inspired by the fairness and justice demonstrated by the Hon’ble High Court.”

On the work front, Suriya’s ‘Aakaasam Nee Haddhu Ra’, directed by Sudha Kongara, will hit Amazon Prime Video on October 30 in Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
