Priyanka slams Mallika by calling India as a regressive nation for women

Priyanka Chopra slams Mallika Sherawat by calling India as a regressive nation for women on an international platform. The former Miss World feels that she is being highly offended by the statement given by the ‘Murder’ girl at the recently concluded 66th Cannes International Film Festival.

Earlier Mallika Sherawat said in her statement, “I made a conscious decision to divide my time between Los Angeles and India. So when I enjoy the social freedom in America and go back to India, which is so regressive for women, it’s depressing. India is a hypocritical society where women are really at the bottom as compared to men.”

At the recent launch of a mobile application by UNICEF, Priyanka slammed Mallika’s statement by saying, “I think we are a progressive nation. I disagree that we are a regressive nation. We are all sitting here and talking about educating the girl child, taking our country forward. I think it’s a misrepresentation of what our great nation is on the world platform.”

“It was something of which I felt extremely offended by. When it comes to Mallika’s statements, I think they were very heartless and I don’t agree with her. It was upsetting for me as a woman. It was upsetting for me as a girl who comes from India. I think it was extreme misrepresentation of our nation. I don’t think it’s fair,” she added.

Hailing from a Jat family in Haryana, the 36-year-old sexy-siren Mallika Sherawat made her bold debut in Bollywood as a leading lady in 2003 with “Khwahish”. However she became quite known in the industry with her extreme bold performance in Bhatt’s ‘Murder’ (2004). Soon after, she went on to do international projects like Jackie Chan-starrer “The Myth” (2005), followed by “Hisss” and “Politics of Love”.
