As the Indian National Congress (INC) announced the candidature of Archana Gautam, the picture of the politician in a bikini started going viral. She has now urged her followers and other people not to merge her showbiz and political careers.

She even took to her social media site and wrote: “Those who are circulating my bikini-clad pictures have exposed their mindset. I am proud of what I do”

 Congress Candidate Archana Gautam Twitter Row: 

1. “Right-wing women are dissing Archana Gautam for her bikini pics while all they like is people like Yati Narsinghanand who don’t even treat them like women.” – Pracool 

2. “Look at her shamelessness. Why this video, just a pic would have been great? Archana Gautam is much better than Modi’s Pragya Singh Thakur”.– Alok Verma

3. “Nusrat Jahan from WB and Archana Gautam from UP are so similar. Both were appointed by female leaders. What else did you think I was going to say.” -Tushar Kant Naik

4. “What a shameful candidate by @priyankagandhi. This isn’t an example of #LadkiHoonLadSaktiHoon…

Worst choice .. must lose the #UPElections2022 .. Hastinapur is a religious place. Such vulgar candidate shouldn’t represent the constituency #ArchanaGautam” –Rahul Tyagi

5. “Shocking amount of misogynist sexually suggestive tweets attacking Cong candidate Archana Gautam by RW. BJP’s gives the ticket to women like Pragya terrorism accused, wife of rapist and murderer Kuldeep Sengar. And they think being an actress or wearing a bikini is the problem. Shame.”-Sanjukta Basu 

6. “Ladki hu lad sakti at its peak, Congress gave ticket to Archana Gautam who is a dancer in “ticktok” industry “-Pratyush Singh 

7. “And it wasn’t just the men who were slut shaming her, WOMEN were doing it too. And Yes…. that is a huge problem. Archana Gautam might or might not be the right person to contest the election, but she has every right as any other person to do so :- Sumit 

8. “Some of you may not agree but I find it disgusting when people from our side is posting pictures and videos of Congress Candidate from Hastinapur Archana Gautam and doing sexist and misogynistic comment. This is rude. Stop behaving like what Siddharth did to Saina” –Shashi Kumar 

9. “लड़की हूं !! अपनी खूबसूरती से ला सकती हूं Uttar Pradesh: Priyanka Gandhi gives Hastinapur seat to Telugu actress and Miss Bikini 2018, Archana Gautam. Don’t mock her. She may be CM of UP” –Account on Twitter. 

10. “Miss Bikini India Archana Gautam gets Congress ticket from Hastinapur. Most suitable candidate for congress!” –Rita

The backlash that the woman candidate that the actor-model Gautam is receiving for her dance videos and bikini pictures has come in many forms. While many people think it is beyond one’s right to judge somebody on their acting or modeling career, others have begun moral policing about what candidate a party needs to pitch in.

If people on the Internet are to be believed, there is “no scope” for women artists to win beauty pageants and post bikini pictures in politics. The use of words like “vulgar“, “aise logo ko politics mai lana” shows the misogynistic and sad mindset of people around.

Archana Gautam has been part of various Bollywood movies like Great Grand Masti, Haseena Parker, Baaraat Company, Junction Varanasi and has been part of many Tamil ventures as well. Considering how many female actors have joined politics in the past, the judgement received by Gautam is incomprehensible.

Be it troll directed towards Hema Malini or Jaya Bachchan or wearing a “western” dress by Parliamentarian Nusrat Jahan, female actor-politicians have often been criticised.
