Mira Kapoor Clears the Air on That Controversial 'Puppy' Statement

"I think we are in a time where everybody is getting hurt about everything. So, I honestly don't feel there is any sense in trying to keep everyone happy."

Mira Kapoor disappointed a lot of working women across the globe with her 'insensitive' comment about working mothers on Women's Day.

She was bombarded with open letters from working moms from different professions and received a hell lotta backlash for the same.

In an interview on Women's Day, she had said,

"I wouldn't want to spend one hour a day with my child and rush off to work. Why did I have her (daughter Misha)? She is not a puppy, you know. I want to be there for her as a mother."

Interestingly, husband Shahid had jumped to her defense and clarified that his wife was speaking for herself and her comment wasn't directed at any specific category of women. He added, "I think we are in a time where everybody is getting hurt about everything. So, I honestly don't feel there is any sense in trying to keep everyone happy."

The star wife kept silent on the whole issue, all this time, until now. She spoke to Bombay Times and said,"I was just speaking my mind, my intention was not to offend or hurt anyone. Could I have chosen my words better? Maybe. But I am not a seasoned actor and I don't know how to be politically correct. I was speaking for a section of women who aren't given their due."

She closed this interview saying, "I am not an actor or a public figure, I have the luxury to be politically incorrect."

Woah! Doesn't feel like she's apologetic at all! 😧
