Kiara Advani: 'Switched off DMs after receiving suggestive messages on leaf picture'
In an interview, actress Kiara Advani revealed that she received a lot of suggestive direct messages on social media after her photograph from Dabboo Ratnani's 2020 celebrity calendar went viral.
“I have switched off some of my DM notifications because I did get a lot of those suggestive ones. Especially after the leaf picture went up. I was like okay we can’t do this right now,” Kiara said in a video interview with Tweak India.
In the said leaf picture, Kiara posed topless, hiding behind just a large green leaf.
The photo also became controversial after charged of plagiarism were levelled against Dabboo Ratnani. However, Dabboo shared another photo from his 2002 calendar featuring Tabu in a similar shot and said 'if I can reuse my camera, I can definitely repeat my own concept'.
Beautiful @tabutiful for #dabbooratnanicalendar 2002 #lovenature This timeless & mesmerising shot of Tabu was taken in the year 2001 and it featured in my calendar in the year 2002. There’s been a lil noise about @kiaraaliaadvani ‘s breathtaking 2020 calendar shot with leaf! Guess if I can reuse my camera, I can definitely repeat my own concept! & if at all that doesn’t go well with trolls, then I admit to plagiarising MY OWN SELF #loveandpeace @dabbooratnani @manishadratnani Huge Thanks to my friends who trust me!

However, when it comes to getting trolled, Kiara told IANS that memes don’t affect her and in fact, she considers them to be a part of flattery. On the work front, Kiara was last seen in a Netflix Original film, Guilty.
