Mumbai: After Kangana Ranaut dropped a supremely evocative riposte to Karan Johar’s sharp response to her allegation of propagating nepotism against him, Shekhar Suman has taken another jibe at her.
The veteran actor took to Twitter, to slyly take a dig at her by now viral ‘badass’ comment.
Karan had lambasted Kangana's remarks on his show, at an event in London, saying, "I am done with Kangana playing the victim card at every given point of time with a sad story to tell about being terrorised by the bad people in the industry; if it’s so bad, leave it."
Responding to Karan's response, Kangana had said, “Why is Karan Johar trying to shame a woman for being a woman? What is this about the 'woman card' and the 'victim card'? This kind of talk is demeaning to all women, particularly the vulnerable because they are the ones who really need to use them. The 'woman card' might not help you become a Wimbledon champ, or win you Olympic medals, or bag National awards. It might not even land you a job, but it can get a pregnant woman who feels her water is about to break a 'ladies' seat on a crowded bus. It can be used as a cry for help when you sense a threat. The same goes for the 'victim card', which women like my sister, Rangoli, who is a victim of an acid attack, can use while fighting for justice in court…I use every card possible. At the workplace, it's the badass card to fight cutthroat competition. With my family and loved ones, it's the love card. When fighting the world, it's the dignity card, and for a seat in a bus, it's the woman card. What is important to understand is that we are not fighting people, we are fighting a mentality. I am not fighting Karan Johar, I am fighting male chauvinism."
She further added, “Now that Karan is the father of a little daughter (Johar became a single parent of twins, who were born through surrogacy last month), he should provide her with all these cards — the 'woman card' and the 'victim card', as also the 'self-made-independent-woman card', and the 'badass card' that I flashed on his show. We will use whatever we need to ensure no one rocks our boat."
Earlier, Shekhar Suman, whose son Adhyayan Suman had been in a very turbulent relationship with Kangana, had called her a 'cocained' actress, without naming her.
Shekhar will soon be seen alongside Sanjay Dutt, in the latter's comeback film, 'Bhoomi'....
