A few days ago, Shahid Kapoor's wife Mira Rajput found herself in hot waters for her controversial comments when she talked about feminism, housewives and working women on International Women's Day on a public platform. While her puppy remark outraged many on social media, it is now her former classmate who has slammed Mira for her inexperience talk and how her idea of feminism is extremely flawed.
In a Facebook post quoted by Deccan Chronicle, she wrote, "Dear Mira,
Having watched your interview, I feel extremely enraged today. I've spent three years in the same college and batch as you. I can say today with confidence that your idea of feminism is extremely flawed. Seeing you walk around with your posse in college, belittling women who were not skinny enough or did not subscribe to your fashion 'standards' makes me wonder what you ever did to have a moral high ground over anyone at any point. Your narrow world view is astounding to say the least. And not to forget, how your statement about working mothers takes us years back in reaching actual empowerment of which you seem to know nothing.
With lots of aggression,
An informed feminist"

On the occassion of International Women's Day, Mira talked about how went through difficult times to bring her daughter into this world. And further went on to say that she wants to be there for her as a mother and wouldn't want to rush off to work since her daughter is not a puppy. She also said that the new wave of feminisn is aggressive and destructive and termed it as 'feminazi' which is the female equivalent of a chauvinist.
Her husband Shahid Kapoor, recently came out in support of his wife defending her stance on the issue and said she didn't make any direct comment on anybody or any category of women and it was from her personal standpoint.
