Bigg Boss contestant trolled for posting 'too sexy' pictures

Saturday, January 16, 2021 • Tamil Comments

69-year-old actress and former Bigg Boss Malayalam contestant Rajini Chandy recently posted pictures from a photoshoot where she looked stunning in a variety of clothes ranging from a denim dress to a jumpsuit. However, trolls managed to invade the actress' comments section with slut-shaming remarks.

Speaking in an interview with a news agency about the pictures, clicked by 29-year-old photographer Athira Joy, and the subsequent harassment she faced from social media users, Rajini Chandy reportedly said, "In December, Athira asked me if I'd be interested in doing a photoshoot and whether I had any inhibitions wearing Western clothes. I said no, I used to wear them all the time when I was younger. I told her I even have a photograph in a swimsuit." Rajini talked about the nasty comments she received after posting the pictures online. "I was called a slut. Someone asked me, 'Haven't you died yet?' Another suggested that I 'sit at home and read the Bible. This is your age to pray, not show off your body.' Yet another person said I was an old auto-rickshaw and even if I got a new coat of paint, I'd still be old," she said.

The 69-year-old actress added that she found it upsetting that the derogatory remarks were made by men as well as women. "A lot of young men find sexiness in older women disturbing, they don't want to think of them as an object of desire. But what I found surprising was that most of the negative comments were made by women. I'm really outspoken, so maybe a lot of people don't like me. But I tell them, instead of wasting your time on me, why don't you use your energy to do a good turn for your country or the world or the Mother Earth?" she added.
