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.
