Time and again, Mira Rajput has admitted that the upside
of not being a celebrity is that you need not be diplomatic. At a recent chat
show, Ms Rajput proved just that. Shahid Kapoor and Mira appeared on a
chat show hosted by Neha Dhupia recently, and it is here that the latter had
something to say about Shahid’s ex-girlfriend, Vidya Balan.
A source told Mumbai Mirror that in one of the segments,
Mira was asked to name one celeb who needed a stylist. Mira instantly said, “Vidya
Balan”. Now, her answer came as a shock to many since Shahid and Vidya were said
to be dating while shooting for Aziz Mirza's Kismat Konnection.
You may recall, earlier this year, Mira had made a
comment on working mothers and received flak. Mira had spoken about why she
doesn’t want to be a working mom, and how she does not want to play with her
child for an hour, and then rush off to work. “Why did I have her then? She is
not a puppy, you know. I want to be there for her as a mother.”
Shasha had then jumped in to clarify that her views were personal. Shahid had said, “When Mira started the conversation, she said those were her personal comments. I don’t think she meant to comment at anybody or any category of women. I think she was talking from a very personal standpoint. I think Mira is speaking for a section of women who aren’t being represented. There are times when those women feel like they should not be celebrated..by that I mean the women who may not be doing a job outside, women who might choose to be at home, have a baby, take care of that baby and consider that something important enough to do. This is at a certain stage in their lives. At a different stage, they might choose to do something else. Like I took five months off when I was having Misha because I felt it was important for me to be with my wife and my child. So that’s a choice you make out of a certain sense of independence.”
Now, we are waiting for Vidya’s reaction to the comment!
