The News Minute | January 20, 2015 | 06:23 pm IST South Indian movie actor Kaniha has taken to social media to lambaste all those who have been slamming her for wearing short skirts.  Kaniha, who has starred in several hits including the Tamil film Five Star and Malayalam films Bhagyadevatha and Pazhassi Raja, recently published a post on her Facebook page in response to 'a lot of messages and comments for a picture of mine wearing shorts'. Some told her that 'they thought I was a good girl and all of a sudden they saw a pic of me in shorts they think I've become a bad girl'. One woman commented, " Do you know your age...shame on you for Wearing shorts!!! Kaniha in her post hits back at all those judging her saying, 'I will wear shorts as long as I am comfortable wearing them in appropriate places whether I am 20,30 ,40 or even 50... For heavens sake I went a beach vacation...so a question to you dear woman you were expecting me to roam around in sarees in a beach town like phi phi...???' A man also pointed out that she was a mother, implying that such clothing thus did not suit her. The mother of a four-year-old wrote, 'Of course I know I am a mother..in fact a proud mother of my adorable four year old son...at least my son will not grow upto be a shallow narrow minded man...he will learn to respect women for their values and actions and not their clothes...' Stating that she is 'a free individual with enough moral value' and is deeply loved and respected by her family and loved ones, Kaniha concluded her post writing, 'I will continue to hope & pray that y'all will gain wisdom some day and invest the time you spend on judging women to impart good values to your children..' Here is the entire statement Kaniha put on her Facebook page.
