Malayalam poet, lyricist and actor-model Gilu Joseph posed for a popular magazine to break all the stereotypes regarding breastfeeding, which is now the most talked about on internet. The actor joined a campaign started by a popular magazine, Gruhalakshmi, few weeks ago that intends to break the myths around breastfeeding babies in open public, which has often received flak from common people. All this started after a young woman, Amritha, posted a picture on Facebook which has her feeding her baby. Amritha received a lot of criticism and flak for the picture from people including her relatives. And post that, the campaign by the magazine, Gruhalakshmi, was started which was later joined by Malayalam actor-model Gilu Joseph. Gilu Joseph will be seen alongside Mammootty in Parole which is slated to hit the screens later this year.
Gilu Joseph is featured on the cover page of the magazine and the actress says that she had to fight a lot of criticism to do this which started from home – her mother and sister. “I am extremely proud of my body and only I exercise rights over it. I only do things that I think is right for me, which is why I had no qualms in taking up this project,” Gilu Joseph told the magazine in an interview. The campaign has now become viral on social media and many celebrities are supporting the cause.
With bold thoughts, Golu Joseph has made it clear that there is nothing wrong with feeding your baby in public, which is often viewed sexually, she says. “It is a problem to interpret this sexually. Isn’t it a beautiful thing, friends? Why do you think it is wrong? Which god will be angry if you feed your child,” Gilu was quoted as saying by the magazine. Gilu Joseph is an air-hostess by profession and has films like Nonsense, Abrahaminte Santhathigal and Parole up for release this year.
