I have always been a traditional girl at heart: Pranitha Subhash hits back at trolls

Pranitha Subhash has responded to trolls who criticised her recent ritual photo with her husband, Nitin Raju. The actress was sitting on the ground next to her husband's feet while performing Bheemana Amavasya puja at her home. While many praised her for remaining true to her roots, others feared she was succumbing to patriarchal evils and pressures.

The actress told ETimes that it is a ritual she has been doing for a long time and that she has grown up watching in her family. She added that she has always been a "traditional girl at heart."

"Well, everything in life has two sides. But in this case, 90 per cent of the people had a good word to say. The rest, I ignore. Just because I'm an actor and the field is known for its glamour, does not mean that I cannot follow a ritual that I have grown up watching and completely believe in. All my cousins, neighbours and friends have also done it. I did the puja last year too when I was newly married but hadn't shared the picture then," she told ET.

Pranitha Subhash says she loves anything that has to do with values, rituals and family at its core. "Being homely is what I've always liked and so is living in a joint family. Besides my parents, I've grown up being surrounded by aunts, grandmothers and uncles and I like it that way."

Pranitha Subhash spoke about Sanatana dharma, too. "It is a concept that is so beautiful and embraces one and all and I am a firm believer in that. One can be forward thinking and modern, but that does not mean one forgets one's roots!" When asked about why the women have to pray for the long life of the husband and not vice versa she said, "That's hardly a point to debate about. We all pray for each other's health and well-being."

Pranitha Subhash is known for her performances in Attarintiki Daredi (2013), Massu Engira Masilamani (2015), Enakku Vaaitha Adimaigal, and so on.

In June this year, Pranitha and Nitin welcomed a baby girl. When it comes to her work, she plans to take it slow. “I want to balance my professional life with my personal life going forward. But right now, I have decided to take it slow because I want to give all my time to my daughter,” she said, in an interview.
