Online Trolling Over Parineeti's Bridal Look: Stylists Speak Out
Bollywood star Parineeti Chopra's wedding with Raghav Chadha on September 24th was a moment of joy and celebration for the couple. However, in the age of social media, even the most private events can become the subject of public scrutiny. The images from Parineeti and Raghav's wedding quickly went viral on various social media platforms, capturing the attention of many. While the wedding was a beautiful affair, what followed was unexpected—Parineeti found herself subjected to online criticism for her bridal appearance. Some individuals claimed that her look bore a striking resemblance to those of fellow Bollywood actresses Kiara Advani and Alia Bhatt. This resemblance prompted Parineeti's stylists, Nidhi Agrawal and Shraddha Lakhani, to offer their perspective on the matter.
Alia Bhatt and Kiara Advani, both renowned Bollywood actresses, had previously chosen pastel-colored bridal lehengas for their weddings, emphasizing a simple yet elegant appearance. These wedding looks had been widely appreciated by the public. However, when Parineeti's bridal look was revealed, it sparked comparisons to those of Alia and Kiara. The online trolling and criticism began, leading to a discussion about whether Parineeti had taken inspiration from her contemporaries.
In an exclusive interview, Nidhi Agrawal, Parineeti's wedding stylist, expressed her perspective on the matter. She firmly defended Parineeti, stating, "I firmly believe that no two brides can appear identical. I'm not showing any bias, but this is a personal sentiment. I don't think any bride would seek inspiration from another bride's photos because each individual is unique. People inherently know what suits them best. It's not something that can be decided overnight, right? We've all envisioned this day, including the colors, the overall look, and everything else. Criticizing any bride's appearance is fundamentally wrong, in my opinion. When I look at these photos, I don't see any attempts to imitate."
Shraddha Lakhani, another stylist who had contributed to Parineeti's wedding look, echoed Nidhi's sentiments. She said, "I believe that not everyone grasps the intricacies involved in crafting a look. It's effortless to engage in online trolling. I believe individuals should appreciate the substantial effort invested in crafting a person's wedding appearance."
