Ex "Bigg Boss" contestant, Priya Malik is in the news these days for joining the "Free The Nipple" campaign by sharing a braless photo on Instagram. Apparently, the post was made to take a dig at the censor board for chopping off a scene in "Baar Baar Dekho," in which a brasserie was shown.

Priya took to Instagram and shared a photo in which she wore just a white dress without anything inside and she captioned the picture as, "Because wearing a visible #bra would be indecent. #FreeTheNipple [sic]."

Priya has always been very vocal about her opinions and her latest, bold move received huge attention on social media. While some have been appreciating her for posting the picture and showing her support for "Free The Nipple" campaign, some others have been criticising Priya. She has also been receiving a lot of vulgar messages.

The former "Bigg Boss 9" contestant shared some screenshots of messages that she has been receiving after she posted the braless photo. In another post on Instagram, Priya also said that people who have been slamming her for the photo, have been sending her vulgar pictures as well.

Thank you for being so sanskaari, guys. You're so traditional. Traditionally misogynistic.

It was reported earlier that the CBFC had asked the makers of "Baar Baar Dekho" to cut out a scene in which a brasserie was shown. Also, a reference to comic porn character Savita Bhabhi was chopped. However, director Nitya Mehra later confirmed that there was no scene in the movie in which Katrina Kaif is seen wearing a bra. She also said that none of the scenes were cut and the film had got UA certificate.
