The Bollywood trade is a place where stars revel in their very own bunch of lovers and admirers. Usually, it is quite herbal if anybody is showing within the limits. However, this buzz is one thing that steadily brings bitterness on many an occasion for plenty of superstars within the trade. Physique shaming is one giant idea out of the entire bitterness that runs across the lovers and admirers of the Indian mass.

She was lauded with love and positivity from her admirers. However, there was once one user who showed his foul mentality amidst the positive comments. He tried to body-shame her by saying,
The derogatory comment quickly got here in the understanding of Divya. And she decided to call out the trolling, instead of ignoring the guy. She rightfully schooled the troller by replying,
“Yes, man!!!” she exclaimed. Big t**s!! So?? what do you think? Keep your mouth shut. Stop obsessing about women and objectifying them. There’s so much more to a woman than that. Did you ever catch a glimpse of my smile or the glint in my eyes??? No, I apologize for expecting too much!! it’s gross Please don’t post anything here.”
Divya told Mid-Day when asked about the incident,
“Respecting women and treating them right is something that needs to be taught at home and school and when you still don’t learn, make them stand in the middle of the road and teach them.”
We all always had the right to speak our minds. And the internet gives us the opportunity where a large number of people can hear us. However, some people misuse this boon, and then it becomes a major concern for society or the person who is dealing with its effects. Patriarchal norms, sexism, and bigotry have spilled over into the virtual world. And in particular, it is wreaking havoc on women. Moreover, anonymity is the biggest reason that cybercrime happens over social media. However, Women now do not embrace this form of communication and have started responding to it. This is a good thing because it is a violation of their individuality.
Divya Dutta has been seen in films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Delhi 6, Veer Zaara, Stanley Ka Dabba, etc. She has mostly chosen supporting roles in her film career. She made her Bollywood debut with the film “Ishq Mein Jeena Ishq Mein Marna” in 1994.
