Swathi gets furious over 'aunty' comment

Saturday 20th June 2015 07:23 EDT

A fan of Swathi Reddy struck a nerve with the actress with a comment on one of her photos. The guy said she looked like an 'aunty' in one of her photos on instagram oblivious of the actress' pending retaliation. She said, “@suthagallery I AM AN AUNTY. It's not a bad word that I have to feel embarrassed to put up with. People like you are the reason it's hard to be yourself. I am not going to be the colours Swati who was 16 forever. Ok, Uncle? Chill with the free advice. The only problem I have with the screenshot is that I found a comma missing in my reply. You see I am a grammar Aunty. I am not going to be Colors Swathi who was 16, forever'. Phew!with that said, the reason I put it up is because I don't want to ignore this guy's banal comment and let him and others know that if looking grown up is 'Aunty' then I am an Aunty. If having more weight than what magazines and social media approves, then I am an aunty. And proud to be one. PS- All the aunties I grew up watching are serious super women and hope I am as good as them. So yeah, PSS- Desi Aunties ko underestimate matt karo.” Following the reaction, the fan has apparently deleted not just the comment, but also his account.
