Hema Malini REACTS To Maharashtra Minister Comparing Smooth Roads To Her Cheeks; 'Waise Karna Nahi Chahiye, I Don't Think It Is In Good Taste'
Veteran actor and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Hema Malini has now reacted to Maharashtra water supply and sanitation minister Gulabrao Patil who had compared smooth roads to her cheeks. She said that this should not happen and that the 'trend' of saying such things was started by former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad Yadav several years ago and it continues even now.

Speaking to ANI, she joked, "Better I keep my cheeks properly, safely." She then added that she could overlook such a comment if it was made by a member of the general public, 'but if it is a member of Parliament or anybody connected to our constituency (who says it), I don't think it is in good taste. Any woman should not be used for saying such things."

Talking about the incident, it occurred when the minister was addressing an election rally for Bodwad Nagar panchayat in the Jalgaon district. He said, "My challenge is to the person who has been MLA for 30 years (Eknath Khadse) to come towards my house (in his constituency, Jalgaon district) if the roads are not like Hema Malini's cheeks, then I will resign."

After facing the wrath of the netizens, he later apologised and said that he did not intend to hurt anyone's feelings. He told reporters in Dhule, "I did not mean to hurt anybody. I apologise for the comments. I belong to the Shiv Sena that idolises Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Party founder Balasaheb Thackeray has taught us to respect women."
