A housewife turned Malayalam actor Rajini Chandy recently took social media by storm with her latest glamorous photoshoot. The 68-year-old actor ditched Indian attire and instead opted for western outfits like a midi dress, denim jackets and jumpsuits. However, though she looked stunning in every picture, sadly, in no time the actress was trolled for the same. In a recent interview with BBC, Rajini opened up on how major negative comments were made by the women and that left her surprised. Rajini Chandy also shared that she was called 'slut' in the comments of her pictures. 

Sharing about how she was trolled, Chandy said to BBC, "I was called a slut. Someone asked me, ‘Haven’t you died yet?’ Another suggested that I ‘sit at home and read the Bible. This is your age to pray, not show off your body’. Yet another person said I was an old auto-rickshaw and even if I got a new coat of paint, I’d still be old."

Chandy also confessed how the trolling was affecting her for a reason. "A lot of young men find sexiness in older women disturbing, they don’t want to think of them as an object of desire. But what I found surprising was that most of the negative comments were made by women,” she was quoted as saying in the same interview. 

Take a look at her photos below: 

Rajini Chandy also revealed that he hadn't worn such clothes in a long time, but was comfortable later after she tried them. Sharing how the idea of photoshoot came up, she added, "In December, Athira (photographer) asked me if I'd be interested in doing a photoshoot and whether I had any inhibitions wearing Western clothes. I said no, I used to wear them all the time when I was younger. I told her I even have a photograph in a swimsuit."

Whenever we try to break boundaries or society ....they try to drag us down socially.....society never supports when some one tries to do something different. U are simply looking gorgeous and sweet ...don't bother about what others are saying....I don't see anything wrong in what u are wearing....a women after giving her complete life for family can't even do something for her own happiness......its orthodox mindset .

They say that the outlook & mindset of men / boys need to change for the safety of women in society, but the women who influences most in the home right from childhood need to change her outlook first. Mam you are graceful .

As a fellow older woman with a head full of silver and dreams, I say kudos to her. We need more representation of joyful, happy and healthy older women.
