This afternoon, the team of Dil Jo Na Keh Saka starring
Himansh Kohli and Priya Banerjee visited the SpotboyE.com office to promote the
venture and during the course of our interaction, the actress, who has been part
of several films down South -- Kiss (Telugu), Ula (Tamil), Joru (Telugu) and
Asura (Telugu) among others -- lambasted Hina Khan too.
Talking about the episode, Priya reveals that she had not
seen it. However, it was only when her friends called and told her about what
transpired did she take to YouTube to watch the episode. She confesses that the
comment shocked her as Hina Khan is one of her favourite TV actresses.
Reacting to the (in) famous statement, she told
SpotboyE.com, “What she said was extremely distasteful.”
Elaborating on her difference of opinion, Priya further
says, “I think she is living in the past where such things may have existed,
but today, every woman wants to be fit. Those days are gone when anything of
this sort was required in the film industry.”
“More distasteful than what she said was the way she said
it. Her gestures were very objectionable,” she opines.
Goes without saying that she has joined the bandwagon of
stars such as Hansika Motwani, Raai Laxmi, Shilpa Shirodkar, Nidhhi
Agerwal, Mahek Chahal and Sonal Chauhan who dislike Hina Khan’s comment, and
of course Kriti Kharbanda whose video with SpotboyE.com had gone viral.
For those who've come in late, Hina (on Bigg Boss) revealed how Tollywood is obsessed with ‘bulgy’ women. "I know that they (South Indian producers) want their heroines to gain weight and flaunt their bulging figures. I was in fact offered two films by two very big production houses which I refused since they asked me to gain weight as well,” Hina had said.
