Is it wrong for Goddesses to wear bikinis. Don't follow them on Insta if you think so...
Sonarika Bhadoria's cute face, lovely tresses and gentle demeanour made her the perfect Parvati for Devon Ke Dev...Mahadev. Fans of the show remember the actress' work and onscreen charm till date, which is no mean feat since Mahadev (Mohit Raina) had a bevy of beauties like Mouni Roy (Devi Sati), Pooja Bose (Parvati) and Suhasi Goradia Dhami opposite him.
Two years post the show, Sonarika moved to the South Indian film industry and has a couple of Telugu films in her kitty. Her last film Speedunnodu got her good reviews as well. Life was hunky dory for her before her bikini pictures surfaced on the Internet. The girl who was enjoying her break on an island posted some snaps of her in a red bikini top and floral sarong. There is a picture of her in a yellow two piece as well. She looks happy, radiant, carefree and there's nothing vulgar about the snaps. Yes, she might have flaunted her assets but which heroine hasn't done so!
Sadly, Sonarika divine past came back to haunt her. The lady received a lot of hate messages within hours forcing her to delete the holiday pictures. Fans were aghast how a woman who played the Goddess Parvati could pose swimwear pictures. If only they had read up wiki and found that she's a film actress, perhaps, they wouldn't be so 'hurt'. We wonder why Gurmeet Chaudhary was spared after he smooched, made love and indulged in mild BDSM in his debut film, Khamoshiyaan. Did fans forget that he was Lord Rama in his first show? Sonarika's victimisation again showcases the sexism that runs through our veins.
She is not the only one. Actor Fardeen Khan who was labelled a hottie in his younger days became the butt of all jokes when people saw his plumper version. The actor gave it back and rightly so. The concept that celebrities should have a standard body is repulsive. Does his size really matter to any Tom, Dick or Harry? Before Fardeen, Aaliya Furniturewallah, Pooja Bedi's daughter gave it back to body-shamers with a post that showed that she was mature beyond her years. We wish netizens showed half of her intelligence or sensitivity.
It is appalling to see how celebrities are meanly targeted by misguided fans. You might not believe us, but there are young TV actors who don't upload their snaps with their real-life spouses/partners just because the hapless girls get abused by fans. All they want, are pictures of their favourite jodi.
Platforms like Instagram are used by celebrities to reach out to their fans. It is a platform to show their real side. Sonarika would never have dreamt that fans of Parvati would lash out at her in this manner. The lady nicely showed them the middle finger and kudos to her attitude. People who have brains smaller than a two-piece don't deserve more.
