Indian actress Nia Sharma is a free spirit who has charmed the nation with her forthright personality. She tells it like it is, and takes everything in her stride like a true queen. Let’s revisit some of her iconic quotes for lessons in fearlessness.
1. Nia’s reaction to people who look down on TV actors is hilarious
Nia is refreshingly real and to-the-point, and she called out those who look down on TV actors in India in the sassiest manner. Speaking to Pinkvilla, she mimicked the way people react to TV stars trying to get a break in Bollywood: “‘Ah, aap toh TV se ho, aap ki toh acting TV…’ arrey chal na, aage badh jao yaar life mein. So, so done with these things.” We’re screaming at the sass!
2. We never related to Nia more than when she said she doesn’t have any good habits
While many actors pretend to be the most immaculate, flawless people, Nia is extremely honest about her flaws. We say this because when she was asked about her bad habits, Nia told Zee that she doesn’t have any good ones. “I can easily get irked and I cuss a lot,” she said, talking about her bad habits.
3. Nia is a huge proponent of standing up for your own self, no matter how people perceive you
In true boss fashion, Nia spoke to Siddharth Kannan about how her badass personality is one she had to develop in order to be taken seriously as a self-made professional, giving us an important lesson on standing one’s ground: “As long as I am true to you, I am not lying, I am professional, I need and I expect the same things … I’ve had to be like that to get my things done because nobody was standing by my side. I’ve handled it all by myself, whether it was about fighting for my money, or it was about standing up for my rights, or anything, I’ve been firm about it”.
4. Nia was candid about how people think she’s weird, but she’s just being herself
During the same chat with Siddharth Kannan, Nia opened up on how she doesn’t purposefully try to be perceived as weird, but that her clothing and makeup choices are just naturally colourful and fun: “Abhi bhi main taiyyar hoti hoon… mereko simple makeup pasand nahi hai. Main kya karoon meri galti nahi hai! So until I have those weird things on my eyes or beads popping out or glitter jittering out, I don’t get out of my vanity.”
5. Nia has also spoken up about colourism and it’s brilliant
The actress has always been vocal about being comfortable with the colour of her skin, no matter what people say. She told Pinkvilla, “Whether I’m dusky, I’m brown—I’m okay with my colour. I never went to my doctor and told her that I want to look fair.”
6. She was such a cool cat on ‘Bigg Boss OTT’
Nia was a ray of sunshine on the show, encouraging people to avoid drama, and supporting anyone who was feeling low. She was so forthright and cheerful during her short stint on the show that we will still count her as one of the best Bigg Boss contestants till date.
7. Nia’s take on people slut-shaming her is the best clapback
The actress also spoke to Siddharth Kannan about the strange obsession people have with her body, and how she is sick of comments on what she’s wearing.
Despite being someone who is trolled so often, Nia has never let the naysayers dull her shine, and continues to charge ahead like a warrior. Perhaps, we should all take notes from her!

The written application was submitted at the Chembur police station by a Mumbai based lawyer Vedika Chaubey. Chaubey alleged in her complaint that actor has hurt the sentiments of women in the general and insulted their modesty through his photographs.
Ranveer Singh, a recipient of several awards, is known for his roles in films like Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat and Gully Boy. Ranveer posed for international magazine Paper this month. The photoshoot, that showed him posing naked in a few pictures was met with some shock and some applause by his fans and celebrity friends.
Later, the NGO and a woman lawyer submitted separate complaints against the actor at Chembur police station. The application filed by the lawyer, a former journalist, had also demanded a case against Singh on the charge of intent to outrage the modesty of women, police earlier said.
In an interview to Paper Mag, Ranveer said, “I work f****** hard. I want to wear nice shit. Eat my f****** a**, I will wear nice f****** shit. I bust my balls, I work 20-hour days. I’m not complaining — I’m only too happy and too grateful — but I go f****** hard. I will f****** buy Gucci, I will wear it from head to toe. Anybody who judges me can eat my f****** a**.”
Ranveer was recently seen in Netflix’s interactive special Ranveer vs Wild with Bear Grylls which received a positive response from viewers. As far as films are concerned, he will next be seen in Rohit Shetty’s next directorial film Cirkus with Jacqueline Fernandes and Pooja Hegde. The film is slated to release on the occasion of Christmas 2022.
