#PoonamPandey & #MilindSoman both stripped down to their birthday suits in #Goa recently. Pandey partly, Soman completely. Pandey is in legal trouble--for obscenity. Soman is being lauded for his fit body at age 55. I guess we are kinder to our nude men than to our nude women. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/qQ9UFQIYXJ— Apurva (@Apurvasrani) November 4, 2020
Yesterday, on Milind Soman’s 55th birthday, he posted a picture of him running naked on a beach in Goa, and it went viral on social media in no time. Milind Soman was lauded by his fans for his fit body at the age of 55. This isn’t the first time Milind Soman posted a nude photo of him on social media. He had earlier shared a throwback picture of a photoshoot for a shoe ad with Madhu Sapre that was clicked way back in the ‘90s. Meanwhile, yesterday, it was also reported that Poonam Pandey got in legal trouble as a complaint was filed against her for posing obscenely near a dam in Goa. Apurva Asrani cited these two instances that took place on the same day and pointed out how society is kinder to nude men than nude women.
Yesterday, a police complaint was filed against Poonam for shooting an ‘obscene’ video. Pankaj Kumar Singh, Superintendent of Police (SP) South Goa told ANI, “Based on the complaint lodged by Assistant Engineer sub-division II works division, Water Resources Department, an offence has been registered under Section 294 of IPC. The police are investigating and further sections may be added as the investigation proceeds.”
Now, Apurva Asrani has called out sexism, and pointed out that while Milind stripped down completely, he did not get into any trouble, and was instead lauded for his post. However, that wasn’t the case with Poonam Pandey. “#PoonamPandey & #MilindSoman both stripped down to their birthday suits in #Goa recently. Pandey partly, Soman completely. Pandey is in legal trouble--for obscenity. Soman is being lauded for his fit body at age 55. I guess we are kinder to our nude men than to our nude women,” wrote Apurva Asrani. Take a look:
Not just Apurva Asrani, many social media users pointed this out, as to how the two incidents were dealt with so differently. While one social media user wrote, “One day we shall celebrate female nudity the way we celebrate Milind Soman running naked on the beach! One day, someday...!,” another one tweeted, “Meanwhile #PoonamPandey gets arrested in Goa for exhibiting her Freedom of Expression. But #MilindSoman manages to run away uninhibited#JustSaying.” ALSO READ: Bigg Boss 14: Evicted Contestant Kavita Kaushik Reveals Why She Likes Twitter And It Is Connected To Milind Soman's Nude Pic- Deets INSIDE
