TV actress Nia Sharma had recently taken to her Instagram account to share a video of herself enjoying a late night bicycle ride. Cycling on an empty lane, the actress had captioned the video as, "Ride and glide." However, netizens were not quite happy with the video. Soon after she posted it, there were a number of Instagram users who slammed the actress for riding outdoors without a mask and accused her of not taking necessary safety precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Surprised by the negative comments, Nia lashed out at them saying she didn't know she has to always put up a post wearing a mask. “I don’t understand why people on social media have to point out that I wasn’t wearing a mask in the video. Do I have to always click a picture or post a video with a mask on? I did not know that there was a rule about taking a picture only after wearing a mask," she told Time of India.
Adding further she said, "If I can shoot with 40 people around me, and not wear a mask when I am in character and in front of the camera, then I can also remove the mask for a few seconds when I am cycling late evening for some fresh air. If you see the video, there was no one around me. I don’t have to always click a picture in a mask. I’m aware about safety precautions.”
This is not the first time that Nia has put up a social media post riding a bicycle. She often keeps updating her social media timelines with brisk riding sessions. Take a look:
