Don't blame me for rapes: Poonam Pandey

Poonam Pandey says her hot acts not to be blamed for rise in rapes

Once again Poonam Pandey finds herself the target of blame and accusations after the Mumbai gangrape. The actress says it’s ridiculous to pin the blame of rapes on her hot acts.

Controversial model Poonam Pandey is appalled, amused and annoyed by talk that her provocative pictures on the internet and in magazines are responsible for the increase in crimes against women.

Poonam, who recently made her Bollywood debut with a bold film "Nasha", says she was "constantly badgered and persuaded to feel guilty about the crime" a day after the gang-rape of a photojournalist here last week.

"Apparently my pictures are responsible for crime against women. Ha ha, really? The same reasoning was used against me during the Nirbhaya case in Delhi. I want to ask all those people who find me provocative enough to induce crime, was there no crime against women before I arrived on the scene," Poonam asked while speaking to IANS.

She feels people need a scapegoat for their own failings.

"Why blame me for social evils? I am just a girl trying to find my place in the world. I'm used to being targeted by the moral police and the morcha-wallis. When law and order fails, the blame has to be pinned to some convenient target. But why blame me? What have I done?" she asked.

"Main toh sirf baat karti hoon. Maine kuch kiya nahin ((I only talk. I haven't done anything). There are renowned respected actresses who heave and thrust in item songs. They are watched by a lot more men than I am," she added.

Poonam is adamant that rape has no connection with the pin-up provocateurs.

"I don't think men go out and commit crime against women because of what they see in films and in pictures. On the contrary, I feel there would be far less crime against women if there would be more sexual gratification at home for men belonging to a certain class, who don't have direct and easy access to female company," she said.

This is where Poonam Pandey feels the revival of the beer bar culture does its bit.

"I think re-opening the beer bars would reduce crime against women on the streets. Men would be able to have at least some access to erotic gratification," said the model-cum-actress.

Poonam objects strongly to the view that women invite unwanted attention by the way they dress.

"Oh please! Five-year-old girls get raped. Do they wear short skirts that provoke such crimes? It is ridiculous to suggest that rape can be prevented if women remain fully clothed," she said.

In any case, Poonam feels mainstream Hindi cinema has a lot to be answerable for.

"I've seen them indulge in shameless sex talk where heroes are making pointed references to women's body parts. What kind of example are these iconic stars setting," she asked.

Poonam had first grabbed attention during the 2011 Cricket World Cup when she offered to go nude before Team India if they won.

Though she didn't keep up to her word, a nude photograph of her was posted on Twitter in 2012. However, she has clarified that it was morphed.

"I've never posed nude. Even that picture that was posted of me nude after the Indian Premier League (IPL) victory (of Kolkata Knight Riders) was morphed. I even admitted that later at the risk of disappointing my fans. I've threatened to go nude. But have I really done it?"
