Pranitha Subhash recently shared a photo of her sitting at the feet of her husband Nithin Raju during a ritual, which quickly sparked a debate on social media over whether the gesture was patriarchal in nature.

Pranitha had shared the photo on her Instagram account on July 28, captioning it “Bheemana Amavasya”, adding an evil eye amulet emoji. Bheemana Amavasya is reportedly observed by many Hindu women to pray for the long life of their husbands and other male members of the family.

Pranitha candidly about the negative reactions to the photo, telling ETimes: “Well, everything in life has two sides. But in this case, 90 percent of people had a good word to say. The rest I ignore. Just because I am an actor and the field is known for its glamour, that doesn’t mean i can’t follow a ritual i grew up and fully believe in all my cousins ​​neighbors and friends did too i did the puja last year too when I was newly married, but hadn’t shared the photo yet.”

The actor added: “In fact, this is not new to me. I have always been a traditional girl in my heart and love everything related to values, rituals and family at its core. Being homey is what I always have and so is living in a joint family. Sanatana dharma is a concept that is so beautiful and embraces everyone and I am a big proponent of that. One can be progressive and modern, but that doesn’t mean one forgets its roots.” When asked about why it is only the woman who prays for a man’s longevity and not the other way around, she said, “That’s hardly a point to debate. We all pray for each other’s health and well-being.”

Pranitha married Nithin, a businessman from Bangalore, on May 30, 2021. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter they have named Arna, in June this year. Pranitha, who has worked in several Kannada and Telugu films since her debut with the Telugu film Baava in 2010, made her Hindi film debut with the 2021 film Hungama 2.
