Notably, the National Commission of Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) took cognisance of the controversial Instagram reel of Riva with adult male actor Karan Kundra in which one of the shots was done in a bar setup. The reel was later removed after the outrage. Furthermore, Nisha Arora, mother of Riva Arora, submitted a written apology to the commission.

In an Instagram post on November 18, her mother wrote, “I, Nisha Arora, tender my apology for the video I made for my daughter Riva Arora’s account where I used alcohol setup and which created so much problem and bad image in the society. I heartily believe being an actor and role models for society, we should portray a good image in society, I wanted to request all child actors and their parents to avoid such kinds of videos. I will take care in future, and I have given an apology letter to the NCPCR and given them all the clarifications related to the issue.”

The Instagram reel controversy

On October 19, it was reported that an Instagram reel starring minor actor Riva Arora and 38-year-old actor Kunal Kundrra went viral on social media. In the reel, Kundrra played the role of the boyfriend, Riva, who already had a relationship with another man. The idea behind the reel was to showcase that the actress in the reel has an affair with two men. The actors opposite Riva in the reel were adults, while Riva was not even a teen. The reel also contained a bar scene where the 12-year-old girl sits cross-legged wearing a very revealing dress. She even moved, talked and used facial expressions like an adult woman dating two men. Notably, Riva was consistently receiving lewd comments on her Instagram posts, and on some occasions, men have also said how they are masturbating to her images and videos. 

Riva’s mother dismissed the concerns

Later on October 23, Riva’s mother took to Instagram to defend her daughter. Instead of addressing the issue of her daughter’s safety, she was focussing on her age and claimed that she was not 12. Riva Arora’s mother said, “It’s unfortunate to see renowned publications spreading false information about a young girl without any verifications. My daughter is currently in the 10th grade. She has worked in the industry for more than 13 years and achieved everything with utmost integrity and perseverance.” If Arora is in 10th standard, she would likely be 14-15 years of age and still a minor and too young to understand hyper sexualisation of herself.

Riva Arora’s latest song ‘Disco Wali Raat’

In the latest song starring Riva Arora, released on YouTube on December 15, Riva was dancing to the song ‘Disco Wali Raat’ in a disco-bar setup. Sung by Sakshi Holkar, the song also features Abhishek Kumar, a 22-year-old actor and influencer. The song’s comments were switched off by the channel that uploaded it.
