“I respect Porn Stars more than I respect these Trolls”, says Nia Sharma on Slut Shamers

When actor Nia Sharma posted a video of herself dancing on Instagram, she didn’t expect it to blow up into a controversy. Soon after the post went up, The ‘Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai’ actor was spammed with comments attacking her and calling her a ‘porn star’. Unfazed by the attacks, Nia says, “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.”

The Jamai Raja actor says she was appalled at the reactions, which caught her unawares and left her annoyed. She reasons that she understands and knows what she is doing if she has posted the video herself. “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. Nia is glad that the media has been supportive and understood her point of view.

Nia uploaded this black and white video of her photoshoot –

Trolls posted comments like “Future porn star is here”, “Chiii besharam kehhikki…Miss ugly sharma”

 

Nia has since posted another video with a reply to the hostile comments that says-

 

“Here’s one more from the photoshoot!! Ready to s**t-shame a girl again? Go aheadddddd..(sic). 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? Calling me a porn star was… porn stars have a dignified life. They earn a living and have chosen the profession as a career. I respect porn stars more than I respect these trolls.”  

 

Interestingly, Nia made it to the list of Top 50 Sexiest Asian Women in the world.

Nia will soon be part of a web series ‘Twisted’, produced by Vikram Bhatt in which she plays a mistress. She admits that she is “scared to put up photos” of the shoot, as she appears in a sexy avatar. The actor maintains that she will continue to act in TV shows and will work in them with the “poise and sincerity required”. But she says that if what she puts up online “doesn’t go down well with people, then they can f**k themselves”.
