Actress Chitrangda Singh has reacted to the hullabaloo caused by Ranveer Singh’s nude photoshoot. While the series of pictures shared by the actor garnered praise from celebrities in the entertainment industry, it also invited some FIRs. Chitrangda, for one, thought he looked “amazing” in the pictures, and said he has a great body to flaunt.

She said that Ranveer is an actor and a creative person and it was his personal choice to pose nude for Paper magazine, which has always stood out for featuring actors in “quirky” shots.

She said, “This isn’t the first time an actor has posted, you know the nudes. I genuinely feel, whether it's a man or a woman, it's his or her body; it’s their decision. We are in the 21st century, it is one’s own decision to wear a sari or a skirt or wear shorts or whatever you want to wear. That is the minimum we can possibly give- in a free world, in a free country for god’s sake. You know without judging them.”

Chitrangda further showered praise on Ranveer, saying, "I think he looked amazing, to be honest. He’s got a great body to flaunt and it’s a piece of art, I suppose. And uhh, you have to have the right kind of eyes to be able to see art and things. If you see wrong, if you see dirt in everything then it’s probably something to do with your mind. I’m sorry to say. I mean tomorrow if a girl wears a skirt and goes, you find that wrong, there’s something sick in your own head to have a certain opinion. I would say exactly the same thing for Ranveer.”

Ranveer has received words of support from several celebrities since the photos came out, including Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan, Vaani Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra, and Janhvi Kapoor among others.

On the work front, Chitrangda will be next seen in ‘Gaslight’, which also stars Sara Ali Khan and Vikrant Massey. The film is expected to release by the end of this year.
