I Do Fear Being Slut-Shamed: Tinaa Duttaa on Bikini Picture

Even as trolls continue to be... well, trolls... our celebs are increasingly learning to ignore them. And do their own thing. A day after Kalki Koechlin was trolled for posting a nude picture, Iccha star Tinaa Duttaa posted a bikini pic of herself on Instagram - a far cry from her on-screen avatar. Thankfully though, most of her fans liked it.

Check out the picture here:

The TV star spoke to Spotboye on how she is indeed scared of being slut-shamed, which is why she doesn’t post a lot of the lovely pictures of herself. She only posted the bikini picture after a lot of deliberation.

Tinaa Duttaa, Actor To be very honest, I do have that fear. And that’s why, I don’t post pictures which are really awesome. My friends ask me, ‘It’s not looking vulgar then why are you afraid of posting it on social media?’ There is always a hesitation in me. Your followers also look up to you as a role model and fashion inspiration. So always wearing a saree too is not a good idea.

She added that she wants to avoid all the negativity that trolls bring with them.

I have never posted a bikini picture on social media because I always have that fear in me. I am confident enough to do a photo shoot but uploading it on social media... No. I may get bombarded with unwanted comments and I don’t want to deal with negativity. So I just avoid it.

Tinaa says she has a simple way of dealing with trolls. She simply blocks them.
