Vaani, who can be seen wearing a salmon pink low-cut top with “Hare Ram Hare Krishna” in Devanagari script printed across it.
The actress has shared the picture on her Facebook account with caption “Don’t’ take life too seriously. Nobody gets out alive".
However, the post did not go well with netizens as they pounced on her in the comments section and lambasted her for wearing a "provocative top" and "hurting their religious sentiments".
The picture has triggered name-calling with demands of immediate action against the actress and an apology from her.

Insulting Hindu gods and practices has become a way to tell a specific section in Bollywood we are going to stoop to any lows to get work.#VaaniKapoor #Bollywood #BollywoodNews https://t.co/7JGZDdOJ9k— 𝔸𝕟𝕘𝕣𝕪 𝕐𝕠𝕦𝕟𝕘 𝕄𝕒𝕟 (@AYMSays) November 13, 2019
Wearing Lord Sri Raam's name on the uncultured dresscode doesn't give value to the actress Vani Kapoor @Vaaniofficial. This is hurting the sentiments of devotees of Lord Sri Raam. We uarge to removed such images from the site and value the devotees sentiments.#vaanikapoor https://t.co/v0jRJntB5w— Pratibha Nayak (@prati_nayak) November 13, 2019
Some of Vaani’s fans came to her defence and said there is nothing wrong with the top or the print as sages (sadhus) in India also wear clothes with similar prints.
Nothing wrong.. as she is not wearing it (name) below waist. That's (below waist) the criteria.. to be categorised as disrespectful, derogatory.— Vishu 🇮🇳 (@Vishu_CS) November 12, 2019

Why not!! She has as much rights as seminude Sadhus covering their body with Ram printed cloths. 😌— Ravish Bharti (@ravishbharti) November 13, 2019
Our ancestors roamed semi naked and we have proof about that. Anyways we are not narrow minded. Sanathan dharma is way of life not that we will dictate her what to and what not to wear. Are we so insecure about our religion that we get hurt for every silly issue?— Buổi sáng (@Buoi_sang23) November 13, 2019
