Kareena Kapoor’s response to a question about whether she considers herself a feminist.
Kareena Kapoor was slammed by some for being ’embarrassing’ and ‘dumb’.
Along with her on stage were actors Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.
Twitter users have come upon an old video of Kareena Kapoor responding to a query regarding whether she considers herself a feminist while promoting Veere Di Wedding. Some others criticised Kareena’s response to the question, which was also acknowledged by her co-star Sonam Kapoor at the event, for sounding ’embarrassing’ and ‘stupid. Kareena was questioned in the video, which a user of the microblogging site shared, about her opinions on feminism and whether she sees herself as a feminist. She was spotted at a 2018 film premiere for Veere Di Wedding, which she starred in. On stage with her were producers Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor, actors Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar, and Shikha Talsania, and Ekta Kapoor.
When a journalist enquired, “I was curious about Kareena’s definition of feminism. What are your thoughts on the idea, and are you a feminist?” The actor stopped for a second before responding as she turned to face her co-stars Sonam Kapoor and Swara Bhasker, who were seated to her left. Kareena remarked, “Yes, I support equality. I would describe myself as a woman rather than a feminist. I am also and foremost a human being.” Even Sonam, who was sat right next to her, applauded her when she gave the correct response and said, “Woohoo!”
But I wanna know why do we even ask these questions from these entertainers? We all know how intellectually dead they are and how their privileges speak for them, so why do we rot our brain cells by asking such questions from them? https://t.co/Tq2CveXMbX
On Twitter, many fans criticized Kareena for her remark in response to the old clip, which received a lot of comments. “The actresses of the 2000s are some of the most dumb, ignorant, and psychotic people ever,” someone once said. The words of another were, “Dumb person is being asked and dumber person is hyping at the back.” One commenter stated, “But I want to know why do we even ask these questions from these entertainers? Because we are all aware of how stupid they are and how their privileges speak for them, why do we continue to torture our brain cells by asking them such questions?” Another commenter added, “Only when you’re born with a silver spoon in your mouth and don’t have to battle to succeed in business can you say that. Another individual added, “Please refrain from asking important questions of Bollywood actors. I humbly beseech you, please, spare me having to witness this and deal with the unfathomable levels of cringe that are taking over my body as I type. I’m gone now. I’ve actually passed away.”
Kareena, who has appeared in numerous movies including Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015) and Jab We Met (2007), is currently working on her upcoming project, The Crew. Rhea Kapoor supports the movie, which also stars Tabu and Kriti Sanon. Hansal Mehta’s forthcoming film is one of Kareena’s upcoming ventures. Sujoy Ghosh’s Devotion of Suspect X, starring Kareena and making her OTT debut, is also anticipated to release this year. It is an adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s same-titled novel, written in Japanese. In a Netflix production, Vijay Varma and Jaideep Ahlawat also star.
