TV Actress Saloni Chopra Harassed During Bikini Photoshoot, But Her Reaction Is Worth Applauding

Published on 3 March, 2018 at 2:32 pm By

In recent times, Indian actresses have gone through many cases of eve-teasing and online harassment because of their bold avatars and exhibiting their sexiness. Creeps and jerks who have never really got educated enough to make them a target, leave no stone unturned to harass them at the slightest opportunity. Women are harassed in public places with ready and waiting predators and all humanity is lost when they click your private pictures without your consent.

While actresses like Amisha Patel, Kavita Kaushik, Malaika Arora Khan and Nargis Fakhri have long been a soft target for these unmindful people, there’s very little you can do about them.

 

However, this doesn’t stand true for TV actress Saloni Chopra, popular for her role in MTV’s Girls on Top. An actress who has been very vocal regarding women-related issues is one of the most unapologetic feminists you will come across.

 

 

The uninhibited actress is quite bold and unapologetic when it comes to expressing herself and shares her pictures on her Instagram handle for her followers.

 

 

 

She’s back to breaking stereotypes yet again, and this time, her Instagram post has caused a serious concern. She posted about a very recent and bizarre incident which happened to her during a photoshoot in La Cabana resort in Goa.

 

 

It all happened when Saloni was basking in the tropical sun by the side of the pool – with her make-up, red swimsuit, sunglasses & evenly bronzed skin, during a break in the photo-shoot.

Saying ‘when you put up photos of yourself in bikini’s then what’s wrong with 45 year old men sneaking photos of you on their phone, tum khud bhi toh dikha rahi ho’ is like saying ‘you have sex with a man of your choice, toh phir what is wrong in others doing it with you too?’ It’s an insensitive, baseless, bulshit argument. ‘You were there shooting in a bikini, you were being photographed anyway… toh phir whats the problem?’ Yes, that’s called consent. That’s part of my job. Last time I checked, my job wasn’t to help 45 year old creepy men wank off at night. No girl should have to be liable or responsible for that kind of shit. Walking down the street, wearing what she likes, living her life – she’s not asking to be porned out. Hell, even if she’s making videos with her boyfriend with HER consent – she’s not giving the rest of the world the right to leak it OR watch it OR jerk off to it. The concept of consent is warped to most people over here. If you are a man and you want to release yourself, use the god damn Internet. It is filled with porn. There’s plenty of material there, truuuuust me. Don’t invade other peoples lives without their permission and then blame it on them. #consent #talkaboutit #women #mybody #speakup #india #goa #girls #everydayindia #talkaboutit #educate #awareness

There, she noticed a man of almost her father’s age, casually filming her with his smartphone. Just because she wore a bikini, he thought he had the unduly right to invade her privacy. But Saloni didn’t take the harassment silently, she preferred exposing him instead, and in doing so, he got quite hassled about the turn of tables.

 

Here’s what happened during the course of their alteration:

We need to talk about what happened a couple of days ago. I was shooting in a bikini for a scene at @lacabanagoa – my make up & hair team applied bronzer on my body & went to wash their hands. I was rubbing it evenly & sitting in the Sun when I noticed a man, easily my fathers age, taking photos & videos of me. I went over & politely asked him to delete them. He aggressively put his phone in his pocket & said ‘get out’. I was frustrated. He then took it out & said ‘I have none’ as he swiped through my photos (I could see them in his reflection, what a moron). I asked to see his phone & he started to yell at me. Asking me to get lost. I was so taken aback by his attitude. Forget an apology, but to turn around & insult me? I couldn’t believe it. My team stood by my side & we decided if he can take my photos, I can make a video of him too. This video had to end short coz he came too close & tried to grab me which is when the girls in my team warned him that dare he even touch me they’d thrash him. If it weren’t for them, he would’ve manhandled me just to get my phone & delete his video. His friend came to apologize later ONLY so we’d delete the video. I asked @lacabanagoa ‘s managing team for this man’s name – but NO ONE helped me. Everyone refused to give it out. They made excuses like ‘oh, he wasn’t really staying here. He was just changing’ & ‘he’s checked out’. Someone even said ‘but he’s gone so let it go’. This is how the hotels staff protected him & refused to help me. I’m appalled by how casually people accept this behavior towards unknown women. Had he done this to someone’s wife or daughter, they would’ve thrashed him all together, but my independence makes it okay for me to be ill treated by a man? If I’m not accompanied by a guy, it’s okay for strangers to photograph me without my consent? If I’m alone, I’m making a big deal? No, fuck that. Wearing a bikini in a pool doesn’t give desperate horny assholes the right to slyly photograph me & then insult me! Such peoples faces SHOULD be shared with the world so you can spot them before they get creepy with you. PS: not sure how my accent suddenly got so indian when I was angry. #Share #tagsomeone

What highlights her concern apart from the shameless man, is the fact that no hotel staff member came to her rescue despite her complaints. They shoved her off and pretended they didn’t recognise this guest. She said in her post: “I asked the resort’s managing team for this man’s name – but no one helped me. They made excuses like ‘oh, he wasn’t really staying here’, ‘He was just changing’ & ‘he’s checked out’.”

Her post caption which starts with “We need to talk about what happened a couple of days ago”,  says a lot about our society and why women don’t feel safe anymore. Earlier too, the actress had expressed how female breasts are not just ‘sexual organs for pleasure’ in a series of bold posts:

I feel your ache beating in my chest like it's my own. No matter how your story may differ from mine, the pain is there, all the same. We are bound in that pain. As sisters. As former lovers. As daughters. We ache because we know what it means to live. We live, because we know what it takes to survive in a cold world like this one. And darling, you are never alone. — A c h e s O f L i f e © Sarah Doughty · If you remember nothing else, know that you aren't alone. Tag a friend.

‘I find it negatively amazing how a woman’s body has politics attached to it. From our hair which is discriminated when naturally adorned, to our face and the make up we wear. From the clothes we buy which can’t show too much, just enough so we can be sexualised. Having the freedom to show more opens the doors to be slut shamed and being raped. To our breast, which we can’t feed our children with in public. To our vaginas and our taxed periods, down to our feet, where in some work places we must wear heels and show ourselves to be womanly. Right now, we need rights just to be a woman.’ Caption by @harnaamkaur – a woman I’ve recently grown to love and admire for her strength.

We applaud her for raising such concerns in 2018, where women are still considered as creatures. At least some actresses have the guts to expose these bullies.
