Malaika Arora on being judged for the way she dresses: ‘I cannot live my life…’

Malaika Arora talked about being criticised for her outfits and said that women are judged all the time for their hemlines and necklines. She added that dressing is an individual choice and said that individuals should live and let live instead of telling others what sort of dress to wear.

Speaking to Bollywood Bubble, Malaika said that she was questioned regarding her dress ‘all the time’. “A woman is always judged by the length of her skirt or the plunge of her neckline… I cannot live my life according to what people have to say about my hemline or my neckline. Dressing is a very personal choice. You may think a certain way but it may not be for me. I cannot dictate it to anybody and everybody. My personal choices should be my personal choices and vice-versa so I cannot sit in judgement and say, ‘Oh, why are you dressing a certain way?’” she said.

She added, “If I feel comfortable…and at the end of the day, I am not silly and stupid. I know what looks good on me, I know what doesn’t. If tomorrow, I feel it’s a tad bit too much, I am not going to. But again, that is my choice, nobody has the right to tell me that. If I am comfortable with my skin, with my body, with my age, then so be it. You have to fall in line, it’s as simple as that.”
