During the music launch of Veere Di Wedding, Kareena Kapoor made a statement for which she was trolled. She had said, “I am not a feminist; I believe in equality.” Post this statement, loads of memes and jokes started floating on the Internet and Twitterati’s didn’t leave a single chance to slam the actress. And now, Bebo has reacted to it and given a befitting reply.
While talking to Hindustan Times, Kareena was asked about being trolled for her take on feminism. She said, “What was wrong in the feminism statement? I’d still say that I believe in equality and there’s nothing wrong in it. Most people think that feminism means male bashing and it makes women superior. That’s what they’ve always meant, otherwise why would they be fighting on Twitter every time.”
She further added, “However, I would also like to add, that in a way, I am a bit of a feminist but I am a feminist in the right way. I’m not trying to say that men are lesser, because they are not. I believe it takes two to tango in any kind of a relationship. But then, main kuch bhi statement bolun, trolls toh shuru ho jate hain (whatever I say, trolling will start), especially when it comes to feminism.”
When asked if her words were misconstrued, Kareena replied saying, “It’s fine. It doesn’t matter. The fact is, I do believe in equality. I do believe it takes a man and a woman to set an example. If you don’t have support from a man and vice versa, it would be difficult to have a family. I don’t want to get associated with any ‘isms’..I mean, why does something have to have a name or a tag?”
