Dil Chahta Hai actress Sonali Kulkarni recently faced backlash after she called Indian women lazy and accused them of relying on their boyfriends or husbands for their needs. But her comments were not well received by social networks and she began to receive harsh criticism for the same. Now the actress has issued a statement on her Instagram account and has apologized and addressed both criticism and support on the matter.
Check out his viral video:
Sonali wrote: “Dear all, I am overwhelmed with the feedback I am receiving. I would like to thank all of you, especially all of the press and media outlets for the extremely mature conduct of connecting with me. Being a woman myself, my intention was not to hurt other women. In fact, I have been very vocal time and time again in support of us and what it is to be a woman. I am grateful to all of you for reaching out to me personally to appreciate or criticize. I hope we can have a more open exchange of thoughts.”
“In my capacity I am trying to think, support and share warmth not only with women, but with all of humanity. It will only be empowering if women with our vulnerabilities and wisdom shine as fair and capable beings. If we are inclusive and empathetic, we can create a healthier and happier place to be,” she continued.
He also added, “Having said that, if I may have unknowingly caused pain, I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart. I don’t like headlines and I don’t want to be the center of sensational situations. I am a staunch optimist and a firm believer that life is truly beautiful. Thank you for your patience and support. I have learned a lot from this incident.”
Sonali’s video has now gone viral on social media. She was criticized by Urofi Javed and Sona Mohapatra, among others. Sonali was last seen in the 2021 Whistleblowers series on SonyLiv.
