Stressing that “slut-shaming is incorrect”, Celina instructed IANS in an e mail interview from Dubai “In our culture, one thing is for sure — the only way one expresses disapproval is through verbal or physical violence; there is no scope for resolution, solution or general discussion, or using civilised language to express disapproval.”

The actress, 35, says she fails to know why her , if it isn’t to somebody’s “taste or liking”, ought to turn into a goal of any type of violence.

“What worries me is (that) so many people (both men and women)” appear intent upon resorting to “sexual, verbal and physical violence to punish one for something that makes them uncomfortable,” she added.

Celina feels the explanation violence in opposition to ladies has elevated in India is as a result of such “narcissistic people (are) allowed to have a voice and practice their regressive and delinquent thought processes and ideologies”.

“Slut-shaming is not funny. It is dangerous, hurtful, disrespectful and harmful to women. It’s important to question society when they expect women to behave in ways that men are not expected to,” she added.

Celina, who received the Miss India title in 2001 and speaks up on very important societal points, feels individuals have a protracted approach to go on the subject of be advanced about how a girl ought to conduct herself throughout being pregnant, menstruation or any associated taboo points.

“My intention as an actor, a beauty queen, a human rights activist and, most of all as a mother, has always been to empower, encourage and break social stigmas through my blessed platform. Women need to be constantly empowered through law and through removing stereotypes attached to how they ought to conduct themselves,” she stated.

Does she discover that slut-shaming is a simple approach to put down an actress these days?

“Not just slut-shaming, but violence against women as such, both verbal and physical, has increased in our country… It doesn’t matter if you are an actress or not,” she stated.

Celina cited examples of outspoken actress Kangana Ranaut and the homicide of journalist Gauri Lankesh.

“Recently, even someone as accomplished as Kangana (Ranaut) came forward and spoke about the domestic violence that she went through, or the shooting of esteemed Gauri Lankesh; so you see, no one is spared, because no ‘authority’ is willing to educate or challenge or severely reprimand this growing trend,” she pressured.

This isn’t the primary time a star has been a sufferer of cyber bullying. Sonakshi Sinha, Fatima Sana Sheikh, Sonam Kapoor and Karan Johar have all been trolled on social media.

Asked if she takes the trolls critically and the way she offers with them, Celina stated “Mostly I ignore them and make light of the situation, occasionally, in instances like what happened with my post, I do take my social responsibility seriously; some issues must be brought to light, and trivial things should be left to die their own sweet death.”
