Female celebrities often come under attack from people with 'sanskari' mindset on social media for posting their hot and glamorous pictures. Some people not only pass misogynistic comments, but also use harsh language to raise their objections usually related to the dress. 

Recently, Soundarya Rajinikanth shared a lovely picture of hers in a swimsuit in which her son is also seen. Generally, such photos get negative comments over the celeb's costumes, but this time the objections raised by the people were for a different reason.

Chennai is suffering from water crisis and there have been calls from people not to waste water when the city is facing a drought-like situation. Under such circumstance Soundarya's post, which shows her swimming in the pool did not go well with her followers.

Soundarya was reminded by many about the situation and soon the filmmaker realised her mistake. The picture was deleted subsequently.

The daughter of Tamil superstar Rajinikanth has apologised for posting the picture and wrote: "Removed the pictures shared in good spirit from my #TravelDiaries considering the sensitivity around the current #WaterScarcity we are facing . The throwback pics were to emphasise the importance for physical activities for children from a young age only #LetsSaveWater. [sic]"

This is not the first time that she has come under attack on social media. Earlier, she was slammed by netizens after posting her honeymoon pictures when the country was mourning the death of 49 CRPF troopers, who were killed in the deadliest attack in Awantipora in Pulwama district.
