After this the Twitterverse stirred up a storm in Mallika's favor.
2. Salman Khan
During a film promotion the actor compared his exhaustion to a 'raped woman'. This callous and disrespectful comment raged a huge debate. National Commission for Women also gave the actor a warning and demanded a public apology.
3. Tiger Shroff
After star-kid, Tiger Shroff's casting in Student Of The Year 2 got confirmed, he was incessantly asked about his female co-star. In an interview Tiger's attempt to avoid the question made him fall flat on his face. Instead of divulging any deets, he said, "I don't get involved with the casting at all. I don't really care about the padding around me. It's the script and my character that matter."
The comment didn't go down well with anybody and the actor has to give another statement stating he was misconstrued.
4. Ram Gopal Verma
On International Women's Day, director Ram Gopal Verma came up with a twisted thought that he shared on Twitter. Here's the tweet he posted on his verified account:
The fans were enraged by this sexist comment and condemned it through their tweets. RGV later tweeted and apologised for distasteful tweet.
"Was just expressing my feelings but I apologise to all who were offended due to my unintended insensitive tweets in context of women's day,"
The director's derogatory comments
"We are a low-class audience. People give money to watch a hero fight, and a glamorous heroine. I don't believe in a heroine clad in a saree. People are paying money, right? They are not watching a movie for free. They are paying money to watch Tamannah in a glamorous role. If they want to act, they can do that separately. But in commercial movies they have to sizzle and be glamorous."
"If the costume designer comes to me with the heroine's clothes covering up to the knee, I tell them to shorten the length. They would repeatedly say that 'madam would be upset', but I insist and get it done,"
