A few years before her debut in Bollywood as an actress, star kid Alaya Furniturewala had lashed out at trolls who thought she was more porn ready than Bollywood ready
Pooja Bedi's daughter, Alaya Furniturewala, religiously posts sizzling pictures of herself on her social media account. However, things turned ugly when a blog site decided to introduce her to the world.
The post received a lot of negative comments, but Alaya is not the one to shy away. She took to her personal blog to lash out against the haters.
She wrote, "I came across a very nice post by Miss Malini that featured me. Everything within the post was very respectful and well said. When I read the comments, my smile faded away. All anyone spoke about was how I was barely wearing any clothes, how I was just another “r***i,” that “taking my clothes off” just made me an unworthy s**t. That I was “porn ready,” not “bollywood ready” and of course the perennial “Indian girls like this are ruining our culture.”
"I took a deep breath and went back to doing what I was doing. My plan was to ignore it like I ignored everything else that brought even an ounce of negativity into my life. But this annoyed me and refused to budge from the back of my mind."
She further added, "If my cleavage is visible, it does not mean I am giving consent, it does not mean I am asking for it. I am more than my breasts and it is unfair to let them define me." Well, all we can say is, shine on girl, cause haters are going to hate.
More power to her and many like her for we need to understand that wearing clothes is a choice, not a moral standard for a woman. And no matter how a woman dresses, she is not asking for it.
