Mira Rajput Kapoor is an avid social media user and often keeps posting her thoughts and opinions on various things happening in society. This time the actress took to her social media as she couldn't agree more with Vidya Balan and Shefali Shah's experiences of double standards toward men and women that are casually practiced in every home.
In an interview with the Quint for their film Jalsa, Vidya and Shefali were discussing how they are often interrupted on the phone while they are working but the same doesn't happen with their respective husbands, Siddharth Roy Kapur and Vipul Amrutlal Shah.
Vidya said in the interview,
"Siddharth and I are on calls at the same time. They (domestic workers) don't mind interrupting me, but they mind interrupting Siddharth. Because I just think that they feel the man is working and the woman isn't, doesn't matter what I do. Somewhere I think at home you're just... They feel ki thik hai na, didi ko to puch sakte hain (they feel it's okay, can interrupt the woman)."
While Shefali Shah too shared her similar instances with her son and how it irks the actress during working hours.
Mira shared the video on her Instagram and added clapping emojis, along with a note that read,
"Equality starts at and extends to the home. Whatever she does, a woman's work deserves respect. So next time you think about interrupting her calls, be ready to be asked what to make for the dinner in the middle of yours."
Well, isn't that true enough? A lot of working women would agree to the fact that till date irrespective of the work a woman does she doesn't get the due credit that she deserves.
If she is a homemaker family and friends often assume that she has no work to do and would be available to them at any hour of the day. It's high time we change this thought process as individuals first.
Jalsa, which starred Vidya and Shefali as co-leads, released on Amazon Prime Video on March 18. In the movie, Vidya played a celebrated journalist while Shefali Shah portrayed her cook, whose daughter gets injured in a hit-and-run accident.
