We recently reported that the former Miss India International, Esha Gupta, got slut-shamed for posting pictures of her latest photo shoot. These were the boldest ever pictures of Esha Gupta and unfortunately, the actress had to face the wrath for posting them.
Esha went topless for her latest photo shoot and people just couldn’t digest it. Questions over her character as well as her “Indianness” were raised. Many even asked her to enter the porn industry because they thought it to be the best place for the actress.
Yes, Esha didn’t stay quiet. Rather the actress gave a silent as well as fitting reply. She posted a few more semi nudes of herself and proved that she doesn’t give a shit about what others think. Now, in her latest interaction with the media, Esha Gupta has lashed out at the slut-shamers and has spoken her heart out.
In our country, women are eternally blamed. They are accused when a girl child is born, they are even accused when they are raped. So, somewhere I knew that I will also have to face a lot of heat. After all, it’s easy for some faceless and redundant people to pull a celebrity down at the first opportunity. I’ve done shoots like this one when I was a model. I’ve gone topless and naked, too. No one ever asked me about that, Esha said.
Talking about the people who trolled and slut-shamed her, the actress said,
Who are these people who have ‘issues’ with my pictures? It’s my body and it’s been shot aesthetically. There’s a thin line, which if you cross, you look vulgar. No one can say my pictures are vulgar. I got more love than hate, but it’s better to be hated than to be forgotten. And right now, I’m in my best shape. Although we knew where this could lead, we thought, ‘If not now, then when?
Esha believes that when men see women progressing, they try and do things to stop them.
Men tend to have a problem if a woman goes bold. Their manhood is challenged. They are prudes; they must have even saved these pictures on their phone. And here we are in the country of Ajanta and Ellora, and Kamasutra, objecting to a woman’s photo-shoot, which she has done on her own will. So, my attitude is, ‘S***w them’, and that’s the point I wanted to make. The pictures turned out so beautiful that I didn’t want to hold them back. The thing is that I’ve been comfortable and confident about my body all along, said the actress.
And for everyone who called Esha characterless and perfect for the porn industry, the actress said,
I know what I’m doing. I’ve survived this industry on my terms and that’s not changing. I’m not a girl from the woods who has made it here. And for those ready to give me lessons on behaving Indian, I’m more Indian they can be. My father has served the nation and I represented it proudly on an international platform
You have to speak for yourself because no one is going to take a stand for you. Esha Gupta has made some bang on points that should stop people from judging others. Love her or hate her, she hardly cares. It’s her life and she is going to live it the way she wants.
