Actor Neha Dhupia after responding to trolls who targeted her for her comment on Roadies show on adultery and slamming a contestant for slapping his ex for being with five men together, has earned the support of Bollywood colleagues. Filmmaker Karan Johar, actors Ayushmann Khurrana, Sonam Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu, Malaika Arora and Neha’s husband Angad Bedi all supported her stand on social media.
Husband Angad Bedi who starred in Pink wrote, “Mothers please raise your sons better. Thank you.” Sonam shared Neha’s post on Instagram and wrote, “Ugh people are so gross, I am sorry about the hate Neha Dhupia no one deserves it. Esp when they are right.” Karan wrote, “We are all with you.”
Ex-roadies turned actor, singer, Ayushmann said, “Discuss, debate. Don’t spread hate.” Taapsee who tried to establish the same stance that violence against women no matter what is unacceptable tweeted, “For all the ppl writing abusive and harassing messages to you and your family should know, they aren’t on the right side of the moral compass they r acting to be the torch bearers of. Adultery is wrong morally n so is violence. One can’t be the response to the other.”
Malaika condemning viscious trolling wrote, “Guys I don’t condone any kind of physical or mental abuse.. Just as a man should never hit a woman, I don’t think a woman should raise her hand either unless it’s to defend herself. But I also don’t condone vicious trolling. You don’t have to agree with @nehadhupia ‘s point of view but attacking her friends, family & baby is unacceptable!”
Dhupia on Saturday in a long social media post that her family and friends are being harassed for her statement and haters are flooding her father’s message box with abuses.
Standing firm on her stand Dhupia said, "adultery is a moral choice" regardless of any gender but she is strictly against any kind of violence. Dhupia opined what a man or a woman does in a relationship is their moral choices a that has the place of being “ambiguous."
"What I do stand for is women's safety. Sadly, as a reaction to my opinion, I have been subjected to weeks of vitriol. One of my posts had over 56k comments! Yet I was silent but now people close to me who have nothing to do with this - my family, my friends, my co-workers and even my dad's personal WhatsApp are being flooded with abuses and harassment. My daughter's page is nothing less than a barrage of abuses and this is not acceptable to me," the actor said.
