Bollywood writer Kanika slammed screenwriter Navjot Gulati for his sexist comments in a post. In a tweet, the Jai Mummy Di writer had said that the key to scoring a ‘top billing as screenwriter’ is to ‘marry into the production house’. Kanika reacted to Gulati’s this remark and expressed her shock over his ‘extremely sexist misogynist bordering on Idiotic comment. She stated that Navjot has a ‘pea brain’ which will not be able to process a successful woman making it on her own. She also continued and told him he might have a brain freeze.
Kanika replied and wrote, “Hi @Navjotalive I am quite shocked by ur extremely SEXIST - MYSOGINIST and bordering on IDIOTIC comment Neither will I list down my body of work cos ur pea-sized brain will not be able to process a successful woman making it on her own! U may have a brain freeze! Have a good day." In another tweet, Dhillon said, “And Mr @Navjotalive because of writers like YOU - who display their STUPIDITY on something that should be Applauded as a welcome step by the writing fraternity- other very deserving writers do not get top Billing as is their right—- shame on u!"
The Kedarnath writer’s befitting reply to Gulati got her Taapsee Pannu’s support. The Thappad actress replied and tweeted, “A progressive call to credit a writer turned into a sexist rant by the age-old misogyny of crediting a woman’s success to the house she marries in or the man she married. Your righteous call for equal credit can’t be overtaken by the bitterness in u." Take a look at the tweets below:
