Rohit Shetty Faces Backlash For His Sexist Remark On Katrina Kaif, The Latter Responds
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty's Sooryavanshi featuring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif is all set to hit the screens this month. Recently, during an interview, Rohit stated that nobody will look at Katrina in one of the scenes where she is sharing the screen with Akshay, Ranveer Singh, and Ajay Devgn. As expected, his comment didn't go down well with people who started trolling the director for being sexist.
During an interview, Rohit said, "You have to watch the take thrice. The scene with the blast has Katrina (Kaif) too. If you look closely, she is blinking (during it). After the fourth take, she came to me and asked: Can we take one more? And I said, ‘Katrina, I will tell you honestly, no one is going to look at you.’ She got so wild. She said, ‘how could you tell me this?’ and I said: Three guys are walking with blasts happening behind, nobody will notice you. And I kept that shot. In the promo, she blinks while walking. But kaun dekhega?"
Rohit was brutally trolled for his comment.
Rohit Shetty proved that he's such a
masculinism cheap,toxic, patriarchal, egoistic, arrogant type person. She is the only one during Sooryavanshi launch event who was trending on Top2.

Rohit Shetty is the classic example of a sexist mysoginist man who would never let a woman succeed even when she wants to do better at work. She’s the most hardworking self made women in the industry and deserves utmost respect ! #SHAMEONYOUROHITSHETTY pic.twitter.com/P61O3JwuiQ

Now, Katrina has come out in his defense stating that his comment was taken out of context.
She wrote, "Dear Friends and Well-wishers... I normally do not comment on media reports or articles... But in this case, I feel a comment made by Rohit Sir has been taken out of context and is been entirely misunderstood. I am referring to the comment as reported that Rohit Shetty said, 'No one would look at me in the frame, as there are three boys there and a blast happening"', this is not what was said.
"I mentioned that I had blinked in the shot, and Rohit sir said, 'there are four people together in the frame and a bomb blast happening, no one will notice you BLINKING.' Even, inspite of that, we still did one more take. I share a very warm equation and friendship with Rohit sir and have always enjoyed our discussions on everything from cinema to my character and, more importantly, he has always been there as a friend for me. This has been taken entirely taken out of context. Hope you all have a great day."
On a related note, Sooryavanshi is all set to hit the screens on March 24.
