Bollywood actress Esha Gupta on Saturday slammed tainted Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya for his ‘sexist’ remark in a talk show named Koffee With Karan hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar.
Esha said that “little education should be given on how to talk.”
The 33-year-old actress also raised questions on Hardik’s family and also slammed the makers of the show stating that “everyone involved” in the show should be questioned.
“Many times people get more excited and say such things. I think even then a little education should be given on how to talk, especially about women,” she said.
Esha also raised questions on the show. She said, “We publicise such things and later raise questions, I think we should question everyone involved in the show.”
The actress was at launch of her new single ‘Get Dirty’ in Mumbai. Her scathing remarks came when a reporter asked her to comment on the inappropriate remarks of “her friend Hardik Pandya”.
Esha then lost her cool and responded by saying, “Who is the one who told you (Hardik Pandya) is my friend?”
The actress further said, “I do not think anyone should talk bad about any woman, if you think your family is not worried about it, then be it, but it is wrong on Humanity.”
“Firstly, women should not compare themselves with men. We are the best in every respect. I don’t want anyone to feel bad, but why don’t you give birth to a child? We suffer from periods five days every month and even then we have to dance, go to an office, and take care of the children. When you can do all this, you become superior,” Esha added countering her own statement.
Pandya has been widely criticised by Indian fans and former cricketers alike after his controversial comments on women. He has also been suspended the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) with immediate effect and banned from playing in any tournament authorised by BCCI or International Cricket Council (ICC).
