Sunny Leonerecently had to postpone her New Year plans as she has to go through massive protests in Bengaluru. The actress, who was actually to put up a glamorous performance at a plush five star in the city, rejected to perform after statues of hers were burnt in the city in objection to her performance. While she posted long diffident tweets to her fans, now she has made use of the social media platform to take on her attackers.
One of the reasons why the Karnataka activists did not like the performance of Sunny Leone at the five star was because they explained that performances by half-clad bikini women will disrupt culture. Giving her own statement on the matter, Sunny took a subtle yet impactful jibe on Twitter by sharing pictures of actresses who wore a bikini in films. However, these pictures were not of any stars but the actresses of previous time who decided to take the bold step of flaunting their svelte frame during their period
Appreciating their bravery and taking a dig at her critics, Sunny tweeted the pictures of famous actresses like Dimple Kapadia, Sharmila Tagore, Zeenat Aman saying, “A few women in Bollywood who have taught me that it’s perfectly ok to be myself. Sharmila Tagore… Mandakini… Dimple Kapadia…Zeenat Aman…”
