Just yesterday, Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone was getting criticised for a sensual photo for a magazine spread. Today, Dangal star Fatima Sana Shaikh’s has become the new point of contention for social media trolls. The photo shoot shows the budding actor chilling on the beach in a black swimsuit and had gone viral, making fans go gaga over her sultry avatar.
But there are many who are calling out the Thugs of Hindostan actor for wearing such a dress. They started shaming Fatima for dressing ‘inappropriately’ during the holy month of Ramazan.
She took to Instagram to share two of the pictures from her photo shoot.
Soon after, people started bashing the actor, posting insulting comments. One use wrote, “You should get the tickets of jahannam as soon as possible…” Another one said, “It’ll surely helps u in Grave… It’s fact when someone got a little success… They always forgets their past.. Whether how was it’s child, slept on road, parents teaching… And many more… And it clearly sees, it’s d effect of ur dirtiest circumstances….ok. See u on the day of judgement.”
The crude comments kept pouring in, calling out Fatima on her faith and religion. “Shame on you…..Muslim hony k layak nae ho tum, Fatima,” one read. “Hindu , christian & sikh all respect month of Ramazan . But u so called Muslim… Really shame on you,” declared another.
Fortunately, Fatima had her share of supporters as well. One user wrote, “Profession and religion are totally different aspects in a person’s life. But don’t mix it up. She’s an actress and she needs to do shoots for her bright career, no God wants to come in between his child’s future…get that in ur mind. I have no grudge towards any religion, I just felt like sharing this thought and I did. For me, all Gods are equally important.”
Another one spoke in the favour of the actor. “I don’t see anything slutty or vulgar in this picture. I only see a girl chilling in the beach. You guys gonna have with these too? Its the 21st century have open- minded thinking. Yo!”
Then one had an apt reply. “Its ridiculous to troll @fatimasanashaikh for getting clicked in a swimwear.What any1 wears or eats is none of anyone’s business!!!”
“Who the hell are you to shame her? You’ve got no right to talk to her like that. What she wants to wear is her choice. Don’t make it about Islam,” an infuriated user ranted.
“This much hatred? For what? Just because she’s wearing a swimsuit? Pathetic Indian public. To all those men judging her by her clothes, nazar hata do, bhaijaan. You’re not mature enough to be a part of the modernised world,” one user wrote. Another user lauded the starlet, “Such grace. You go girl!”
On the work front, Fatima will next be seen in Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs Of Hindostan, alongside Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. The film will hit theatres in 2018.
