Bollywood actor Kiara Advani’s topless photo shoot for Dabboo Ratnani's 2020 celebrity calendar went viral on social media just a few days ago. However, the photograph invited its share of controversy, with charges of plagiarism being levelled against the concept.

Soon after a storm of memes mocking the photographer and Kiara lashed the internet.

She slammed the mockers by insisting that memes didn’t affect her, and claims she considered them to be a form of flattery. The actress in fact revealed that she has also shared some of the memes.

"It is so funny and so flattering. I had even posted some of the memes that went viral. They were really funny. It's okay. I think it's just a form of flattery," Kiara said.

On the work front, Kiara has a busy year ahead. She is all set for the upcoming Netflix film "Guilty".

Talking about her role in the film, the actress shared, "I play a character called Nanki in 'Guilty'. She is an extremely layered and complex character. She is constantly wearing a mask. She is very far from who I am as a person. It was very interesting to understand the different shades of this character and get inside the skin of it."

"My characters in 'Kabir Singh', 'Good Newwz' and 'Guilty have all been very different from the other. Let's hope people like 'Guilty' as much as they loved me in those roles as well," she added.

"I remember after watching 'Sanju', I liked Vicky Kaushal's character as much as I liked the character of Sanju. The role which you are playing should excite you as an actor. The platforms are blurring and I think today the lines are blurring. A mainstream actor like me is also doing a feature film on a platform like Netflix. I think that's a great thing. A change is happening," Kiara said.

Directed by Ruchi Narain, "Guilty" stars Kiara Advani, Akansha Ranjan Kapur, Taher Shabbir and Gurfateh Singh Pirzada. The film will be  released on Netflix on March 6.
