On a day like today, when the nation is shamed by the details of the gruesome kidnap, rape and murder of an 8-year-old in Kathua (J&K), this post brought to light by Arjun Kapoor is the last thing anyone would have wanted to come across. The actor came across an article on a website which talked about his sister Janhvi Kapoor and her choice of clothes. Sensationalizing the story, the headline talked about how Janhvi was seen at Arjun’s house, in a ‘bare it all sexy dress’. Naturally, this made the actor furious and he made sure to highlight all that is wrong in the post.
In his post, Arjun said that he is ashamed by this since this is how our country looks at young women. The Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar actor said, “U know what F*** u man f*** u as a website for highlighting or bringing it to anyone s attention…and it’s shameful that ur eye would go searching for something like this shame on u…this is how our country looks at young women yet another shining example…ashamed by this… (sic).”
Earlier, the actor had tweeted about the Kathua rape case and expressed concern over how the reality of our country is overshadowed and how our government and leaders have failed to respect women or lives. “A life is lost a childhood taken & yet everything is politically connected leading to a so called secular country getting divided on caste & religion because that digresses from the reality that our country, the silent government & its leaders still don’t respect woman or lives,” Arjun said after the details of the minor’s rape and murder came to fore through the chargesheet.
On the work front, Arjun is shooting for Namaste England with Parineeti Chopra and is also said to be doing a film with Raid director Raj Kumar Gupta. It will be based on a real life incident and not many details are known as of now. As far as Janhvi is concerned, she will be seen in Dhadak with Ishaan Khatter. The film releases on July 20.
