Anjali Menon, the popular filmmaker, had been targeted with some ruthless questions, to which she answered patiently and won the hearts. She was asked by an interviewer that when Divya ( played by
Nazriya Nazim in
Bangalore Days) who could not bear the tension on her wedding day had a puff from her cousin’s cigar what other girls will do when they are tensed? Will they smoke to overcome the stress, asked the interviewer? He also asked what will Anjali do when she gets tensed. Anjali stated that Divya was a bride and that was a scene to show the anxiety of the girl. Anjali told that she doesn't smoke, but will call her friends when she is tensed. Anjali answered with a lot of patience.
Another reporter asked Anjali that when men could drink and smoke during their filmmaking to get relieved from the stress, what will Anjali do? They also asked that as a moviemaker, she had to handle a lot of money and how could she make it as a woman. This question irritated Anjali and that reporter also added that he will never trust his wife and will not give her that much money to handle. Anjali called him personally and replied him enough.
Why do people ask questions like this? Are we still in the Stone Age? When we speak about the equality of men and women, these set of people behave as if they are living some thousand years back. They should grow up!
