Recently videos of a girl traveling on the Delhi Metro in mini-skirt and bikini-type attire went viral.
The girl was spotted on the Delhi metro dressed in a DIY bralette paired with a micro mini skirt. When the videos and pictures of the girl widely surfaced on social media, netizens became curious to know the identity of the woman. While some people were surprised to see her bold outfit while using public transport, others commented that the girl was trying to be Uorfi Javed.
The Delhi Metro girl finally identified herself and opened up after her videos went viral
In an interview with India Today, the Delhi Metro girl identified herself as Rhythm Chanana. She expressed her opinion about the sudden social media attention. She also told the story behind her bold outfit and how she tackles society.
However, Chanana told that her family members are not happy with her choice of outfits. She also said that she gets regular threats from her neighbors. But she revealed that she doesn’t care about what people think of her.
Rhythm Chanana told India Today,
“It’s my freedom in what I want to wear. I am not doing this for a publicity stunt or to become famous. I don’t care what people have to say. I am not inspired by Uorfi Javed. I didn’t even know who she was until recently a friend showed me her photo. However, I look up to her after knowing her story”
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) recently issued a statement regarding the matter after videos of Chanana’s barely-there attire went viral. When questioned about it, Chanana pointed out that Delhi Metro has a no-videography policy inside the trains. She said,
“It’s weird that DMRC has now forgotten their own rule of no videography inside the metro. If they have a problem with my attire, they should also have a problem with those who shot it”
The 19-year-old also told India Today,
“This choice didn’t come in a day, it’s a process. I also belong from a conservative family where I wasn’t allowed to do what I wanted, hence one day I decided I would do as I wanted since it’s my life. I have been travelling like this for many months now. It happened to be viral now. I have not been allowed to travel on Delhi’s Pink Line, but on any other line I haven’t faced such a problem”
When she was asked about safety while traveling in Delhi wearing such revealing clothes, Chanana said,
“I haven’t faced any such issue. In the case of regular comments and eve teasing, I have learnt to ignore them.”
Here is the viral video that has been raising eyebrows all over the internet
