Actress and cricket host Sunita Garabadu's strong statement after her mirror selfie turns controversial
Sunita Garabadu is known among fans for hosting the T20 World Cup in 2016, while also participating in a few Indian Premier League (IPL) matches, apart from acting in a few films in Odia and television shows. Having also hosted the Hockey India League and the international Hockey Champions Trophy, Sunita's name has been embroiled in a controversy over the past few days after she posted a photo on her Instagram page that has made heads turn. Sunita, who is married and settled in Ireland, shared a mirror selfie sans any clothing with the caption, "Sun soaking while fantasizing about Spain", which has since been receiving backlash on social media, while is also being subjected to trolling.
In that light, Sunita has now spoken about the controversy in a video that is as follows:
"Hello guys, I'm making this video in context to a post I made four days ago which didn't go well with a lot of people on my account and even with people not on my account. They've been trolling me, sending me hate messages, abusing me, my husband, my family, talking shit about my work in India, talking even about my house in India and my house here in Ireland. So, people have also gone to the extent of reporting that post and asking Instagram to block it. But, I'm confident that I haven't gone against any terms and conditions of Instagram. And, that's the reason my post is still out there. All these people doing this, I just want to say that the world is much bigger, distinct and vaster than your small minds can fathom, and the little wells that you live in. So, please grow up."
She continues, "Secondly, I need not ask for it on Instagram because when I ask for it I get it and I am already getting lots of it. I also want to say that everything about a woman’s body is not related to sex. Stop seeing a woman’s body only sexually. It’s not an object of having sex or intercourse. If you can understand this much, we will be able to solve a lot of problems that's going on in the world, lot of issues related to women exploitation and rape culture."
