"You are just awesome.”
Tillotama Shome has divided the internet with her latest post on Instagram.
In a picture shared with her 93.2k followers, the Sir actress can be seen basking in the sun, wearing a black t-shirt with the word ‘unapologetic’ written on it.
With a smile on her face, Tillotama also shows her unshaved armpits to the camera.
Alongside the picture, the actress wrote: “I do say ‘sorry’ a lot.
“Worst is when I apologise in anticipation of someone’s apology as if it’s a ‘hello’.
“I am sorry if I did something good because I could have done it better. The visceral ones, of course, slip out of your mouth in silence.
“The t-shirt is a reminder to use it less and mean it more.”
Tillotama also mentioned her unshaved underarms in her caption.
She wrote: “Oh and about body hair, yeah not sorry about it.
“I wear it as I like it. It’s not a statement. I also wax. I also don’t. Good day.”

One Instagram user wrote in the comments section: “Sorry but it’s looking disgusting.”
Tillotama replied and wrote: “Be and let others be. Good day to you.”

Tillotama played Alice opposite Vijay Raaz in Mira Nair’s Monsoon Wedding.
She also received praise for her performance as a housekeeper in love with her employer in Sir.

In 2021, Tillotama opened up about the challenges she has had to face in the industry.
The actress shared: “I am grateful that the ‘Fair & Lovely’ obsession never entered our household.
“My parents were truly progressive, without even knowing it. After my debut in Monsoon Wedding, I became resentful of every offer that wanted me to play a maid.
“I did an American film in which the director tried to darken our skin further as we were looking ‘too beautiful to be poor’.”
