Shahid Kapoor’s beloved wife Mira Rajput has been making it to the headlines ever since she made some controversial statements on Women’s Day.
She said, “I had a tough pregnancy, I went to those 5 months of difficult times to bring my daughter into this world. So now I want to spend every moment that I can with her and I think there is a set of responsibilities around my plate and I feel at my age I have a lot more energy, I have my future ahead of me, so I can finish all of my responsibility and I have nothing in my way. I can raise my daughter, I can be a good wife. Nothing will stop me after that. I love being at home, I love being a mother to my child, I wouldn’t want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work, why did I have her? She is not a puppy; I want to be there for her as a mother.”
While very few have come out in support of her, there are plenty of them out there who have bashed her for making some offensive statements on working mothers and feminists. One among them is Mira Rajput’s own batch mate who studied with her in college. In an open letter on Facebook, Mira’s classmate has shown her aggression against Mira stating that she has got the definition of Feminism completely wrong.
Having watched your interview, I feel extremely enraged today. I’ve spent three years in the same college and batch as you. I can say today with confidence that your idea of feminism is extremely flawed. Seeing you walk around with your posse in college, belittling women who were not skinny enough or did not subscribe to your fashion ‘standards’ makes me wonder what you ever did to have a moral high ground over anyone at any point. Your narrow world view is astounding, to say the least. And not to forget, how your statement about working mothers takes us years back in reaching actual empowerment of which you seem to know nothing.
With lots of aggression,
An informed feminist
