The latest celebrity to join the ‘Free the Nipple’ movement is from India — Priya Malik. The former Bigg Boss contestant has come in support of upcoming movie Baar Baar Dekho after the Central Board of Film Certification demanded that “offensive shot of a woman’s brasserie” in the movie be cut.
Priya posted a picture on her Instagram, where she is wearing nothing but a strappy white top. “Because wearing a visible #bra would be indecent. #FreeTheNipple,” she captioned the photo.
She also tweeted about going to a news channel debate on the same topic without a bra on Monday.
Priya is quite active on Twitter when it comes to calling out sexists. Take a look:

Priya was a contestant in the ninth season of Bigg Boss and came into the house as a wild card entry.
A DNA report had claimed that the board also objected to the mention of Savita Babhi (a fictional character from pornographic media) in the Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra movie.
The report quoted a source from the movie’s team as saying, “We don’t live in times where women’s innerwear is never spoken of in public. In fact, even as early as 1995, there was a scene featuring Kajol in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Moreover, the film is directed by a woman (Nitya Mehra). To assume she’d use the lingerie scene for titillation is absurd. We were asked to delete the reference. The name is used in a light-hearted manner in the film. If a porn reference is objectionable, how was Sunny Leone’s name used in A Flying Jatt?”
