After Angad Bedi, Neha Dhupia has received support from her Roadies Revolution co-judge Nikhil Chinapa. Chinapa took a stand for Dhupia, who was being trolled for slamming a Roadies contestant for slapping his girlfriend who cheated on him.

In the long post, Chinapa mentioned, “You never, ever get the right to physically hit a person because they hurt your feelings. Hitting someone you are in a relationship with, is the basic definition of domestic abuse.”

He also wrote, “Neha saying, “That’s her choice.” None of us, not I, nor anyone on the show has ever said cheating is okay – it’s not… However, being cheated on, still doesn’t give you the right to hit someone.”

Earlier, Angad took to Instagram and shared five photos of his wife Neha. He captioned the post, “Sun MERI baat.. here are my 5 girlfriends!!!! Ukhad lo jo ukhad na hai!!! (Listen up, here are my 5 girlfriends. Do whatever you want to do.)”

Commenting on his post, Neha Dhupia wrote, “My man.” Not just Angad Bedi, the Roadies Revolution mentor received support from many celebrities for her statement shared on social media handles.

Ekta Kapoor commented on her statement, “Power to u!!!! Much love”.

Sophie Choudry tweeted, “Guys, I don’t condone any kind of physical or mental abuse. Just as a man should never hit a woman, I don’t think a woman should raise her hand either unless it’s to defend herself. But I also don’t condone vicious trolling. You don’t have to agree with Neha Dhupia point of view but attacking her friends, family and baby is unacceptable!”

“Cowards hit women…If you call them out, their ilk hides behind the anonymity and safety of social media and threatens to hit and assault women. Neha, stay strong,” Richa Chadha wrote as she shared Neha’s statement.

Konkana Sensharma, Pulkit Samrat, Neena Kulkarni and others also tweeted in support of Neha Dhupia.
