'Sexiest television star' Nia Sharma landed in a soup after she posted a video of herself where she is seen grooving in skimpy clothes. While some lauded her for this act, the others have slammed by calling it shameless and cheap.
Nia's Jamai Raja co-star also lent his support to her, by claiming she is an upfront and respectable girl. Not only that, he even added that she has the right to post whatever she wants and has has responded rightly to the flak.
A few people have asked her to stay in limits and not to post such revealing videos. Nia opened up about the controversy to a leading entertainment portal. She told, "It was so silly. The comments were as trivial as they were trash. It is a shame that I have to explain myself. I didn't intend to make headlines when I put up the post, but thanks for the publicity."
She added, "Are people mad? It was not a drunk post. We were having fun while shooting a music video, and my team shot me while I was posing and I put it online. People on social media hide behind anonymity and feel they can get away with [saying rude things]. If someone spoke this way to me in person, I would punch their face in."
She says, "Why are people making it so difficult for girls to live the way they want to in India. Let's not make India a place where a girl has to think 10 times before going out or wearing what she wants. Do people want me to cover myself up from head to toe? Are we in India or Afghanistan?", concludes Nia.
