Mira Rajput applauds Vidya Balan for calling out sexism at home, says men should ‘be ready’ to be asked what’s for dinner

Actor Shahid Kapoor’s wife, Mira Rajput, shouted ingrained sexism By republishing a statement that actress Vidya Balan made on the issue recently. Vidya and her seated co-star Shefali Shah talked about experiencing sexism in their homes, and how often this behavior runs deep.

Sharing a video excerpt from Vidya’s interview on The Quint, Mira wrote in an Instagram story, “Equality starts at home and extends to. Whatever you do, a woman’s work deserves respect. So next time you think of interrupting her calls, be prepared to ask what to do. You have to do it for dinner in the middle of your call.”

In the video, which was recently amplified by SheThePeople, Vidya said, “Sidharth (Roy Kapoor, husband) and I are on calls at the same time. They (the house helping) don’t mind my interruptions, but they do mind interrupting Siddharth. Because I think they feel like the guy It works and that a woman is not, it doesn’t matter what I do. Somewhere I think that at home only you … They feel ki thik hai na, didi ko to puch sakte hain (They feel it’s okay, they can interrupt the woman).”

Shifley had made similar comments during the roadshow for a session. “It’s been years of conditioning, that the woman stays at home and takes care of the house. She does the housework, the husband goes out and works,” she told journalist Barka Dutt in an interview. Telling her story herself, she added, “You know, when I’m at home and I don’t go to work, No one asks me ‘Why didn’t you go to work?’ But he (her husband Vipul Amrutlal Shah), I will ask, ‘Why won’t you go to the office today?’

It was the subject of ingrained sexism Also recently highlighted Written by Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, who said that whenever guests attend, she is expected to bring them refreshments and not her brother. She told SheThePeople, “I think especially in homes where you live with joint families, the responsibility of learning how to run the house or learning how to take care of guests or learning how to play host always rests with the daughter. And I’ve never seen such importance given to my brother or to a younger boy in The home. I think that in and of itself serves to solidify the women to believe that it is our responsibility to take care of the home.”
