Priyanka Chopra goes blouse-less for a magazine cover, gets trolled

Priyanka Chopra was trolled for wearing saree without blouse for an international magazine cover. She wore a shimmering saree and ditched her the blouse. She exposes her bare back. No sooner the photo was shared on social media, the actress was trolled. Vulgar, drunk are such unpleasant comments that the actress received.

One troll wrote, “Drunked,,,, shame on you .ur Indian woman dnt forgot.” While the other one wrote “shamed” the actress. Another troll said, “In films u teach to be true desk girl who is covered and in real life shame shame.” A user said, “She is trying to reach the same level of Vulgarity as Hollywood to just fit in there...”. A girl called her ugly and said, “She is looking ugly nd shameless.” A netizen said that she has crossed all the limits. The comment read, “PC has crossed all the limits to b a Hollywood diva. Shame on u aunty.” 

Designer Tarun Tahilani came out in support of the actress and said that the saree without a choli made it a “global statement”.

Speaking to Mid Day, Tarun said, “There’s nothing vulgar about it. In fact, not using a choli makes it a global statement. The transition from alluring Indian beauty (in Priyanka’s last Bollywood outing, Bajirao Mastani) to this modern goddess for a mainstream fashion cover only speaks of her (Priyanka) versatility. She is truly a modern Indian icon.”

Talking about her love for sarees, Priyanka had told InStyle, “My problem is when it comes to Indian fashion, there are always these shiny, sequinned, over-the-top Christmas-tree outfits. Those are not the sarees I wear. I grew up with my mother wearing sarees to the hospital, as a doctor. She’d wear these beautiful ones made of French chiffon, with a bindi over here. And the nape of her neck would smell like Dior’s Poison. That, to me, was a modern woman. And that’s what I want to show the world.”

Priyanka had shared several pictures from the photoshoot on Instagram and wrote, “Fashion is such an important part of global culture, often arising from centuries of tradition, and doesn’t go out of style when the seasons change. The ‘sari’ is one of the most iconic and recognised silhouettes from India. To me, its beauty lies in its versatility, not just in drape and fabric. It embodies elegance, femininity, and power, and I love how I feel when I’m wearing one,” she wrote.
