5 Sizzling Summer Looks Of Deepika Padukone From 'Pathaan' Which You Can  Ape Right Now

The actor finds herself in the middle of a swimsuit storm once more. In the thrilling aerial action movie “Fighter,” directed by Siddharth Anand, the actor plays Squadron Leader Minal Rathore, also known as Minni. Many were impressed by the teaser, which looked a lot like Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick. After all, intense dogfight scenes were shown on Indian screens in midair. However, it appears that a glimpse of Deepika Padukone in a black swimsuit is what drew the attention of the self-described moral police, and the rest is history. She was being criticized for demeaning and humiliating female fighter pilots. However, how is she disrespecting the group of fighter pilots by showing up in a swimsuit during what looks to be a beach scene? It’s possible that she couldn’t be meeting her in her Air Force fatigues.

Someone posed the question: Does one’s attire determine professionalism or what constitutes professional behaviour? From raunchy item numbers to the male protagonist mentally undressing the heroine and getting titillated, the male gaze has frequently objectified women. The young men in the class are fueled by the seductive allure of the sultry schoolteacher, who often dons chiffon sarees and backless blouses that expose their necklines. These crude portrayals have frequently delighted the so-called purists.

However, they are quick to criticize when a self-reliant, intelligent, and polished woman embraces her identity and sexuality. So, if a woman chooses to show off her femininity while working in the so-called public sector, it is seen as unprofessional and unserious about her work. However, isn’t the way she dresses and chooses to spend time outside of “office” hours considered unprofessional? Why is it limited to female public servants? Have they agreed to forfeit their freedom to dress and interact with others? Not at all! The armed forces have always been democratic, and female members of the force, such as Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma, have blazed new paths in their fields. In the services, equality has always been instilled from the beginning. Furthermore, looking back, how does the same not apply to the male? We have often applauded male officers, be it those in the police force or government jobs, flaunting their chiseled body and enjoying the adulation.

Former Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin recently experienced criticism after it was revealed that she was out partying; as a result, many began to doubt her ability to lead. Instead of their work, young Indian politicians who are well-known for their love of designer handbags and sarees find themselves in the news for their wardrobe. Women have historically been the victims of discrimination due to their clothing choices; in some cases, crimes against them have been committed on the basis of their appearance.

However, it’s time we acknowledged that women can party hard, work even harder the next day, and wear swimsuits. It’s time for the purists to put down their prejudiced glasses and take a crash course in letting go.
