Photos of a woman wearing canary yellow sari on election duty are going viral on social media platforms. People are going crazy and want to know everything about her. Some are sharing her images with false claims. The 'internet sensation in yellow', as she was called, is Reena Dwiwedi, a Lucknow resident.
Hailing from Deoria district, Reena has worked as an assistant officer in the PWD department since 2013.
According to Reena, she has done election duties in 2014 and 2017 too but this time she has become an internet sensation because of these photos. “People in my own office and even visitors are requesting me for selfies. Though it is nice to be famous overnight, it also gets uncomfortable at times," she said.
"Private companies have a more disciplined work culture. I brought that legacy with me in PWD as well. Probably that is the reason my seniors and bosses appreciate me," she was quoted as saying by a news agency.
Reena is a fitness freak and is conscious of her diet and before joining PWD, Reena had worked in the insurance sector.
Reena says she had received several offers to act in Bhojpuri films, but did not take them up since her son was small.
"Maybe, if I get good offers now I may take them up because my son is old enough to take care of himself," she said.
