Women are judged by what they wear or their choice is not something new. Facing the wrath for the same was Gehraiyaan actress Deepika Padukone. While the actress posted a cryptic message when she was targeted, her co-star, Siddhant Chaturvedi, has now responded to the actress’s assessment.

For those who don’t know, Instagram influencer Freddy Birdy took a peek at the clothes the film’s protagonist wore during the promotions, while commenting on their necklines and hemlines. Read on to find out what the actor had to say.

During a recent interaction with Bollywood Bubble, Siddhant Chaturvedi was asked about his opinion on women being “reduced to their clothes”. He was asked for his opinion on the matter, taking into account the comments addressed to his Gehraiyaan co-star Deepika Padukone. The actor said: “Yes, it was very disturbing. I know what you are talking about. And it is stupid, yes. Plug the five verses of Sher Aaya Sher into it. I was really furious because at this stage, where we have made progress it is 2022 and as you say ‘Kandhe se kandhe mila ke chaliye (men and women should be equal)’.

Siddhant Chaturvedi further added: “This movie is clearly directed by Deepika and the way they say and write about it, I mean… Can’t you look any further? Can’t you see the power of a woman? Don’t see the talent? You just see that. It’s her choice, right? Whatever anyone likes to wear, unke upar hona chahiye na (it should be up to them, right)? It’s a free country.”

The actor concluded: “But to pick these things out, I think it’s really bland and not in good taste. It’s really sad. Kya kar sakte hai (What can we do)? It’s their problem, it’s in their head , so I can’t help it.”

Several celebrities, as well as netizens, have expressed their views on actresses who are judged on their choice of fashion.

Speaking of Gehraiyaan, the Shakun Batra director starred Deepika Padukone, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa in the lead roles. The film was released on Amazon Prime Video earlier this month and received positive reviews.
