Pooja Bedi’s Daughter, Aalia Ebrahim, Responds To Internet Bullying

  • JWB Post
  •  January 2, 2016


While my Facebook news feed is bombarded with the usual New Year resolutions of people, the caption, “I Am More Than Just My Breasts!”  by Pooja  Bedi’s daughter Aalia Ebrahim, caught my attention.

Intriguingly, as to what compelled her to give such an infuriated statement, I opened the article. It read:

“I came across a very nice post by Miss Malini that featured me. Everything within the post was very respectful and well said. And the caption to it on Facebook said “Hi Bollywood… are you looking at this?” (can be seen at ) When I read the comments, my smile faded away. All anyone spoke about was how I was barely wearing any clothes, how I was just another “randi,” that “taking my clothes off” just made me an unworthy slut. That I was “porn ready,” not “bollywood ready” and of course, the old “Indian girls like this are ruining our culture.I took a deep breath and went back to doing what I was doing. My plan was to ignore it like I ignored everything else that brought even an ounce of negativity into my life. But this annoyed me and refused to budge from the back of my mind.

If my cleavage is visible, it does not mean I am giving consent, it does not mean I am “asking for it.” I am more than my breasts, and it is unfair to let them define me.”

To get a clear understanding, I read the other related post, ”10 Stunning Photos Of Pooja Bedi’s Daughter Aaliyah Ebrahim That Prove She’s Bollywood-Ready!”, which has received lots of negative comments. Comments like – ‘She is not Bollywood, but Porn-ready’ are disturbing which, naturally, aggravated Aalia.

It bothers me that it’s mostly women who’re bad-mouthing her. Really, Ladies??? Is this how we will liberate and free ourselves from the unceasing wrong that dwell upon us?

She is an independent girl, urging the society to stop being mean and judgmental. And most importantly, it’s her choice.

In my imaginary conversation with her, I just want to comfort her by saying, ”Spread your wings and fly high, little Aalia, where scissor-tongues of critical souls can’t get to you. So high you fly”.

Peace out.
