One major drawback of being a public personality is the trolling that comes with it. It’s worse when the trolls are perverts. That’s exactly what happened with Aashka Goradia. She was doing a live yoga session along with her husband. Shveta Salve also joined the yoga session. However, they had to leave the live video midway after the trolls started passing lewd comments.
An incensed Shveta decided to give it back to them. She took to Instagram and wrote, “Started my morning with a live yoga class performed and executed by my friends @aashhagoradia @ibrentgoble @apeaceofblueyoga. But what made me stop were the obnoxious, lewd and sexual remarks by a****les who hide behind their faceless accounts. Here is someone practicing her art, directed by her yoga teacher and husband but all that these guys wanna do are talk cheap.”
She posted screenshots of every vulgar comment and reported the accounts. She also shared screenshots of people apologising her for their obscene comments.
She further wrote, “I am done ignoring, blocking, turning my comments off. There’s not a single woman I know who hasn’t been sexually molested or abused in her life and now we can’t be ourselves, doing our thing (like even Yoga) without the fear of being a sexual target.”

Hina Khan supported the actress and wrote, “Abuses and perverse comments from faceless cringeful minds have no gender, no social personality. The veil of anonymity is their weapon! We all should absolutely call them out! Here’s to you @aashkagoradia. I stand with you ! I #IgnoreNoMore #LetsLiftEachOther.”

Later, Aashka thanked Shveta by writing, “I looked up to you even when I did not know you for the way you carry yourself and the choices you make. Everything seems tremendous to me. But what you did for me yesterday sets a precedence on how a woman can lift another woman. I am so humbled and honoured that you got my back even when I wasn’t watching cause the real good counts when you are good even when no one is watching, you are that.”
