A while ago, I told you how Sonakshi Sinha recently snubbed the fashion police for criticising her sartorial choices and ‘weight issues’. She made her point clear by posting an illustration of a skeleton on her Instagram profile and asserting how she’d never become like that. The Dabangg actress also shared another photograph of herself sporting an ensemble that had been panned by the who’s who of the glamour world. She added that she loves that outfit and doesn’t care a damn about the fashion police.
And guess who has decided to take a stand and support her publicly? Well, that’s none other than Parineeti Chopra – another actress who has been bogged down by the fashion police several times. She not only praised Sonakshi, but also lauded her other contemporaries, Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma, for speaking up for themselves. Here are some of her tweets.
We’ve previously told you how Bollywood’s angry young girl, Pari, never shies away from thrashing the journalists when they ask her offensive questions. Check out three such instances here.
Considering in the recent past both Deepika and Anushka have dished out open letters to the media stating their respective opinions, Pari appreciated the two of them for being gutsy. While Deepika blasted a leading daily for titling an article ‘OMG: Deepika Padukone’s cleavage show’, Anushka spoke up when a lot was written about her ‘lip job’.
Pari also mentioned how Kangana Ranaut has rejected ‘fake’ awards many times.
This is what Kangana had stated in an interview:
“I rejected about four awards for Queen and Krrish 3 (2013). I’m not going to attend any award ceremonies in the future, and the reason is simple — my priorities have changed. Spending time with my friends is more important than attending these.”
Clearly, our B-town beauties are much more than just eye candy and they seldom shy away from speaking up against baseless criticism.
Also, going by the box-office records of the recent woman-centric films like Queen, Mary Kom, Mardaani and several others, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that this marks the end of hero-worship in Bollywood. Is 2015 being dominated by our heroines? Here’s the answer.
Cheers to Bollywood’s powerpuff girls!
