Actress Kaniha hits back at haters over short skirt

South Indian actress Kaniha had posted a picture of herself and her schoolmates enjoying vacation in Thailand.

She looked happy and wore clothes different from the usual saree clad characters she plays as an actress.

Little did she know that her vacation picture will create such an uproar and she would face moral policing.

Kaniha's glamorous avatar didn't go too well with netizens and soon men and women alike started criticising her for her choice of dress.

The actress was flooded with abusive comments and messages for posing in the picture wearing shorts.

Kaniha, who has starred in several hits including the Tamil film 'Five Star' and Malayalam films 'Bhagyadevatha' and 'Pazhassi Raja', wasted no time and took to social media to lambaste all those who have been slamming her for wearing short skirts.

Someone pointed out that she was a mother and should not wear such clothes.

The mother of a four-year-old wrote, 'Of course I know I am a mother..in fact a proud mother of my adorable four year old son...at least my son will not grow upto be a shallow narrow minded man...he will learn to respect women for their values and actions and not their clothes...'

Some told her that 'they thought I was a good girl and all of a sudden they saw a pic of me in shorts they think I've become a bad girl'. One woman commented, "Do you know your age...shame on you for Wearing shorts!!!

Kaniha in her post hits back at all those judging her saying, 'I will wear shorts as long as I am comfortable wearing them in appropriate places whether I am 20,30 ,40 or even 50... For heavens sake I went a beach vacation...so a question to you dear woman you were expecting me to roam around in sarees in a beach town like phi phi...???'

Here is the entire statement Kaniha put on her Facebook page -

Was holding myself back but after seeing a lot of messages and comments for a picture of mine wearing shorts I can't stop myself from writing this.

Some are saying that they thought I was a good girl and all of a sudden they saw a pic of me in shorts they think I've become a bad girl.. Really???

So a woman asks me." Do you know your age...shame on you for Wearing shorts!!!

I will wear shorts as long as I am comfortable wearing them in appropriate places whether I am 20,30 ,40 or even 50...
For heavens sake I went a beach vacation...so a question to you dear woman you were expecting me to roam around in sarees in a beach town like phi phi...???

Really???

A man asks me "you know you are a mother.. Very bad of you...."

Of course I know I am a mother..in fact a proud mother of my adorable four year old son...at least my son will not grow upto be a shallow narrow minded man...he will learn to respect women for their values and actions and not their clothes...

I am a free individual with enough moral values who knows to dress up appropriately for given ocassions..my family and dear ones respect me for who I am....many of you FB friends admire me for the kind of person I am....the rest of you who judge me please keep judging...I will continue to hope & pray that y'all will gain wisdom some day and invest the time you spend on judging women to impart good values to your children..

Have a fabulous day....
