Yami requests people not to make Hrithik–Kangana spat a gender war

SNS | New Delhi |

After Farhan Akhtar posting a long message about how Kangana was being favoured at the cost of face value, Hrithik’s Kaabil co-actor Yami Gautam has also voiced her opinion on the case.

Yami, who is not too vocal about her thoughts, has come out of the cocoon and appealed to the masses to not make it a gender war and look at both sides equally. She has backed Hrithik Roshan and wrote how terrified she is to see this matter take a different course of action.

Without mentioning the names of celebrities in question, she put forth her notion in quite a sophisticated way and received thumbs up from her fans. People have been praising her for not seeing this it as a gender based issue, rather maintaining a balance between both her colleagues.

She wrote on Facebook, “This is concerning the matter surrounding two of the biggest stars in our industry. I have, fortunately, had the opportunity to work with one of them. However, I am not writing this as a co-star or even as a friend. I am writing this as a woman and a concerned citizen of the country, and I will try to get my point across as succinctly and as objectively as possible.”

Also stating how people jump to conclusions on such cases blaming the man, she wrote, “I am no legal expert. And I am not privy to the details of the case. I know what has been reported in the media, and I am all for good, honest reporting. However, somehow, the tussle has turned into a gender war, with a certain faction of the society having already declared the man guilty. People have presumed that since he is a man, he must be the guilty party, since that is how it has always been. Men have oppressed women in one way or another for centuries, and it’s being presumed that it is the same in this case, too.”

“And that’s dangerous. Whatever happened to innocent, until proven guilty? Whatever happened to letting the law take its own course? Yes, a lot of times, at least in this country, we have take to the streets to get justice. But that’s not the case here. The police is investigating, and both the parties are privileged enough that they can represent themselves in court and fight this out legally. Sadly, our law and order is sort of classist, but let’s not digress,” added Yami.
