There was a time when Bollywood female actors were under pressure to look a certain way off-screen as well. Often, they came under the public scanner for their weight, their clothes and their fashion sense. But in the recent times, the leading ladies of Bollywood like Disha Patani, Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan and Deepika Padukone among others took an inspiring stand against body shamers. And now it is our television betis and bahus who have come out in support of their Bollywood counterparts.
The viral social media campaign #ShaveYourOpinion creates an awareness in the society that a woman can wear whatever she likes and nobody has the right to judge or stop her. Joining the campaign, television actors like Jennifer Winget, Anita Hassanandani, Mandira Bedi, Ragini Khanna and Shruti Seth have posted a picture on their Instagram account holding a razor in their hand.
The National Award winning singer Monali Thakur, who is currently seen on Colors' live singing reality show 'Rising Star' along with talented singer Diljit Dosanjh and music composer Shankar Mahadevan, wore a beautiful outfit for one of her appearances on the show, but a fan reprimanded her for not living up to the image of a parent or a guide to the contestants and then she lost her cool on a comment about her short dress on social media.
Beyhadh star Jennifer Winget wrote a strong message for all those who judge a woman by her physical appearance, “Remember, when you judge a woman by her appearance, it doesn’t define her, it defines you. Let nothing and nobody dull your sparkle. So to those who judge us, Go #ShaveYourOpinion,” wrote Jennifer while posting her photo with a razor.
Anita Hassanandani of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein also shared, “To all those who judge us women on our choice of clothes. #shaveyouropinion.”
