Bollywood’s yesteryear actress-turned-author Suchitra Krishnamurthy took to Twitter to post about her opinion on the recently concluded elections, expressing her happiness about actress-turned-politician Kirron Kher’s win. However, in the same tweet she also mentioned a distasteful comment on another Bollywood actress-turned-politician, Gul Panag.
Suchitra wrote, “Kirron Kher win over Gul Panag. India needs strong women & mothers not cleavage flashers.”
Now, while Suchitra’s horrible comment didn’t really go down well with the Twitter community, our very own fashionista Sonam Kapoor went on to react to the same. She said, “I cannot believe a woman tweeted that. It’s disgusting. Women are the biggest enemies of women.”
Not the one to keep calm and carry on, Suchitra reacted too, saying, “True . So if u ever aspire to political office remember to put ur clothes back on.”
Meanwhile Kirron’s hubby Anupam Kher took to Twitter to congratulate his wife. “Congratulations @KirronKherBJP for winning the Chandigarh Parliamentary seat by a margin of more than 69000 votes. Jai Ho.:)”.
However, Kirron Kher and Gul Panag chose to maintain a dignified silence.
Suchitra later apologized to Gul. She posted: “ok now I’ve had it with that last tweet-2 late 2 take it back. Not a personal attack on Gul but a general obsrvatn on political demeanor. my apologies to @GulPanag – but i stand by my statement that a young woman seen in a sexual context will not be taken seriously otherwise (sic).”
