"Democracy means the power to decide… Every woman should have the power to decide over her own body!" the 'Sacred Games' actor wrote

Iran continues to be in a state of turmoil following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was purportedly detained by the country’s morality police and beaten up during detention

Sacred Games‘ actor Elnaaz Norouzi, who is currently working in India but is Iranian by nationality, took to social media to share her thoughts on the matter.

She stated in a powerful video that it is a woman’s prerogative how she wants to dress up, what she wants to wear, whether she wants to show her hair and skin, or if she wants to cover it all up.

In the video, the 30-year-old actor, who was born in Tehran, took off several layers of clothes before posing semi-naked.

She started with a burqa, which she took off to show her face, then her hair, then proceeded to show other modest clothes she wore underneath — comprising a loose embroidered kurta

followed by a denim shirt that she wore over a pair of denim pants, a crop top, a mini skirt, a black bra with crisscross straps and finally stripping it all to only wear a cream-coloured underwear.

She told women that it is all right to wear whatever you want, as long as you are comfortable in it.

With every layer of cloth that she stripped, she conveyed the message to people watching that it is a woman’s choice on how she wants to dress up and nobody else’s.

She ended the note with a disclaimer, “I am not promoting nudity, I am promoting freedom of choice!”
