Actress Taapsee Pannu, known for her strong and powerful roles on the silver screen, on Wednesday defended herself over social media in a quirky way after being slammed by a follower for wearing a bikini in her upcoming film Judwaa 2.
Pannu shared two photographs of herself on Twitter to promote new song 'Aa Toh Sahi'. Alongside the images, the Pink star wrote: "When you are against the tide, it's you who needs to stand up for yourself… But don't forget the smile. Judwaa 2. Aa Toh Sahi."
However, one Twitter user didn't seem to like her in a bikini, and wrote a post in Hindi.
"In our country, we have freedom of expression, so why don't you remove the remaining clothes also. Your brother must be feeling proud of you after watching this."
In response to that, Taapsee wrote: "Sorry, Bhai hai nahi varna pakka puch ke bataati. Abhi ke liye behen ka answer chalega (Sorry I don't have a brother, otherwise I would've asked him and told you. But for now, a sister's reply will work)?"

Pannu will next be seen in Judwaa 2, directed by David Dhawan. It also features Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez. The film will be released on 29 September.
In other news, the Pink and Naam Shabana actress will be seen playing a self-defence instructor in an upcoming short film, said its director and producer Kapil Verma.
The story of the film revolves around the relationship between two siblings. Vicky Arora plays the brother in the film.
Verma says he had a great time shooting the film with Pannu, who went through a training session to get the physical nuances of her character right.
"I narrated the script to her in Mauritius on the sets of Judwaa 2 and at the end of the narration, she asked me 'When would you like to shoot it?' She trained very hard for the film. We had a great time shooting, it was fun and quite intense too."
Asked why he chose Pannu for the film, Verma said: "I had written this script around two years ago. I had watched Taapsee's film Pink and worked with her in Naam Shabana. I knew then that she would be perfect for the part."
Though the title of the short film is yet to be decided, the cast and crew finished its four-day shoot in Mumbai.
