"This is very unfortunate that women are being asked what to wear and what not," says Neha Dhupia. “This is very unfortunate that women are being asked what to wear and what not,” says Neha Dhupia.

Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia condemned the remarks of veteran singer K J Yesudas against girls wearing jeans, saying such a “flawed” thinking regarding women’s apparel needs to be rectified.

“This is very unfortunate that women are being asked what to wear and what not, even as our country is moving forward. I feel that the flaw does not lie in the ensemble of women but in the minds of those who make such remarks. I think this thinking towards what half of our total population is wearing needs to be corrected,” Neha told reporters in response to a query regarding the singer’s remarks.

Neha was here for promotion of her upcoming film, ’21 Topon ki Salami’ directed by Ravindra Gautam. The film, also starring Anupam Kher, Divyendu Sharma and other star cast, is slated for release on October 10.

“It is challenging to bring yourself to the notice of the audience as an actress in a multi-cast film. I feel bored when am asked to act in a film wherein hero and heroine are the only lead characters,” she said.

Responding to a query, Neha said she would like to work in any biopic which is based on a true story.

Yesudas had on October 2 resented women wearing jeans, saying this went against the Indian culture.

“Women should not cause trouble to others by wearing jeans….What should be covered should be covered,” Yesudas had said.

      If the women have a right to wear any dress, why not Yesudas can express his opinion. If he thinks that wearing Jeans is not good, he is enled to his opinion. It has become fashionable to criticize every person who speaks about the dress code of women. I bet who criticize more must be very strict with their sister and daughters. The right dress changes from city to city and even area to area in the same city. A dress which may look normal in Greater Kailash may look odd in Andha Mugal area. A dress which may look normal in Mumbai may look odd in Jhansi.

        We visited USA in 2011. We were shocked to see ladies in bra and knickers/minis only. The shock wore off in 2 or 3 days and then it started looking normal. People in India are not used to watch ladies in provocative dresses. So it is normal to stare at such ladies. No lady will want to be stared at even from backside. Will those persons who advocate "any dress" for women will never allow their sisters/daughters to wear knicker/mini and even sports bra in the market or before their family guests.

            LOL, you talk as if women don't desire men. The way you talk of "male hormone" without actually mentioning testosterone, shows that you know nothing about human attraction.Anyway, if you want to play a game of generalization here, take this statement which is more or less statistically true (please google search "statistically" if you don't understand):"Men want attractive women; women want wealthy men".Now, why do you think one side is more moral than the other?
