Priyanka Chopra-Jonas was recently body-shamed by many across the globe for her dress at Grammys 2020. Suchitra Krishnamoorthi shared her view that is all about positive body image, self-love, and women-power.
When Priyanka Chopra-Jonas donned a fringe gown, many netizens were quick to dissect her fashion statement. While some lauded her bold garb, another section was not that appreciative and took to social media to question her sartorial choice.
Many took to social media to body-shamed Chopra-Jonas:
One user wrote, “I wish somebody has stapled your dress..your nude body is lyk a nightmare (sic).” while the other said, “She looks like a porn star” while another commented, “I think you need surgery to lift them up.”
And one such voice was of a leading designer Wendell Rodricks who not only took a neckline dig at Priyanka but also shared how there is a certain age to wear certain types of clothes.
But thanks to actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi for standing up for Priyanka and giving it back to Wendell Rodricks and other trolls a be-fitting reply. She wrote,
“Was so upset to see this post on insta by Wendel Rodrigues who’s work I otherwise have a modicum of respect for. I think the fact that Priyanka is not trying to hide her belly with her clutch is what makes this pic so beautiful. Makes her the rockstar she is. Her confidence an inspiration to every woman. Women have been so enslaven by men’s opinion of how women should look this photograph of Priyanka to me at the world’s most publicized event is the height of liberation. You go girl and keep rocking it. I was never a fan of the lady but this pic has surely made me one.”
Suchitra further questioned if a man’s belly would have been discussed. She wrote,
“So dear ugly men get this. We are not our bodies.
We are our abilities. We are our talent. We are our own rock stars.
Would anybody have dared comment on a mans belly or appearance like this? God knows we see grotesque images of them everyday and all the time. More power to you #PriyankaChopra.”
Take a look at Suchitra’s full post below:
Thanks, Suchitra for such a body-positive post.
Priyanka Chopra isn’t the first woman who has been body-shamed. Many of us have faced it when we were shamed for our weight, skin-color and age.
At IFORHER, we salute every woman who is owning up her body and not letting the society to tear her down.
