Choreographer-turned-director, Farah Khan reacted to the Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut controversy, saying the ‘Queen’ actor is playing a woman card. Though, Farah did not take name of Kangana directly. Feminism meant equality and if a man would have made statements like Kangana, he would have faced the wrath of the society, the filmmaker said.
Expressing her views on Kangana’s recent interview, Farah said, “I don’t want to take anyone’s name, I don’t want to get caught in between. But every time you are playing a woman’s card. For me, feminism is equality. In such a scenario, a man should put himself in a woman’s shoes and vice versa and then it becomes easy to understand each other. One should deal with such matters carefully.”
Both men and women should receive same treatment and judgment should not be made on the basis of gender, she added. “Just imagine if a man had said something like a woman, what would have happened. If a man had sent a picture or said anything like this, that man’s life would have become hell or he might have been taken to the jail. If such things are not acceptable for a man, why it should be for woman?” she asked.
Kangana slammed Hrithik on the talk show ‘Aap Ki Adalat’ and said he should apologise to her publicly for causing her mental and emotional trauma after their alleged relationship ended.
