Nia Sharma, Asia's third sexiest woman, is grabbing eyeballs these days thanks to her sexy transformation over the past few years. The actress, who became a household name with her role in daily soap Jamai Raja, ditched her girl-next-door image to become one of the hottest TV actresses in town. Recently, the actress was slut-shamed for her raunchy video and also trolled for uploading bikini pictures on her Instagram page. However, the bold actress feels that there is a dire need to change people's mindset.
Wearing bikini is as normal as breathing
During an interaction with the Times Of India, when Nia was asked about being criticised for her bold pictures, she said that there's nothing wrong in flaunting your body and wearing bikini is as normal as breathing.
"There is a dire need to change people's mindset. I'd uploaded a few bikini pictures on the internet and people started screaming, 'Oh, she is a wannabe! She wants to prove something!' Wearing a bikini is as normal as breathing, so what's this hullabaloo all about? I recently posted my new music video and got trolled because I was dancing in a bustier. Someone rightly said that when Bollywood actresses show skin, they are called divas, but when TV actresses become sexy, they are termed as sluts! People really need to grow up and have a life. Styling and fashion has gone to a different level and there is nothing wrong in flaunting your body," Nia said.
My makeover is helping me experiment with newer things
After missing out from the small screens for quite a long time, Nia turned on the heat in her debut music video Waada with Tony Kakkar. Recently, we got a glimpse of her new sexy avatar where she was seen playing a seductress in the teaser of Raat Ki song from Vikram Bhatt's erotic short film Twisted.
Talking about her transformation over the years, Nia said, "After six years of doing TV shows, I am suddenly in the limelight. Don't you think that would be a feel-good moment for any actress? I am happy that my rating as one of the sexiest women in Asia by an international poll has taken me further up in life. I don't want to sound pompous but there was a time when I was just another average-looking, chubby girl and nobody would bother to turn around and look at me. I felt that as an actress, it was important that I look after my body, skin, and groom myself. As cliche as it sounds, I never wanted to be an actor. But then, after Jamai Raja, I became financially strong so I could experiment with my looks. A couple of years ago, I would not have been able to pull off the role of a seductress in a web series. But now, I've done it with confidence. TV has given me a lot, but it has its limitations, and my makeover is helping me experiment with newer things."
