To all the trolls who hated on Priyanka for wearing a short dress whilst meeting PM Modi in Berlin, Bollywood has these words:
Dia Mirza 💬: I’m glad Priyanka chose to be herself and not play a part scripted by misogyny. Trolls are only a mirror to the patriarchal mindset that imposes which a woman should or should not wear to qualify her dignity.
Pooja Bedi 💬: Priyanka represents the modern Indian woman. It was a beautiful dress. What is inappropriate are trolls making something so normal into something abnormal.
Richa Chadda 💬: I didn’t know there was a dress code to meet our public servant at the highest post. She wasn’t visiting a gurudwara or temple, that needed some compulsory head cover. Just goes to show that trolls are sexist, and no matter what a woman’s achievement, they want to discuss what she was wearing. Or that we are so deprived that all we see is legs. I am certain our PM who believes in Beti Bachao Beti Padhao will condemn these trolls.
Kabir Bedi 💬: Priyanka did nothing wrong by wearing a dress when she met Prime Minister Modi. To objectors I say: Wake up, sleeping beauties, it’s the 21st century!
