Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra got entangled in a controversy that nobody saw coming. At least, nobody thought it could become a subject of a discussion.
A poster of Assam Tourism, where Priyanka is featured in a western attire instead of the state's traditional dress where her little cleavage is also showing has made Congress legislators, including Nandita Das and Rupjyoti Kurmi, furious.
Both of them recently raised objections and demanded that the star should be removed as the brand ambassador of Assam tourism. Rupjyoti Kurmi said, “The government should preserve the respect of the Assamese society. A frock is not an Assamese attire and the calendar pictures were not sober at all. The government should have known how to preserve the prestige of the Assamese society, instead, they could have used the traditional mekhela sador. This is the reason we have protested against the calendar.”
However, State Tourism Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma came to Priyanka's rescue and said that a section of the Congress legislators are trying to get cheap publicity out of the issue.
On the other hand, actresses like Disha Patani, Deepika Padukone and Nargis Fakhri have also been pinpointed by Indians for their cleavage-show as they took offence.
Baaghi actress Disha Patani had worn a plunging neckline where her cleavage was showing during an awards' night last year and got massively trolled and slut-shamed for it. There was an image of a guy ogling at her cleavage sitting next to her went viral.
Next, Deepika has also gone through a lot of debate and discussion because a media house published her cleavage-showing pictures.
Actress Nargis Fakhri was also told to pin up her neckline by audiences on a dance reality show as her cleavage-baring dress was termed ‘too bold’ for TV. Check it out right here…
It shows that this has become a favourite pastime in India to troll, comment and policing the dress of the actresses as they are vulnerable targets.
