Rutuja Sawant Calls Chetan Bhagat 'So-Called Educated' After His Comment On Urfi Javed As 'A Distraction To Guys'
Actress Rutuja Sawant also slammed Indian author Chetan Bhagat after he commented on fashion influencer Urfi Javed:
Fashion influencer Urfi Javed never misses out on being in the limelight for her unique and bold fashion sense. Where in the one hand, Urfi gets a lot of appreciation for her fashion, on the other hand, she also has to go through from lots of trolling every now and then. On this, Urfi Javed is once again making headlines due to the comment made on her by Indian writer Chetan Bhagat. Actually, in a recent literature event, Chetan Bhagat said that nowadays people spend a lot of time on Instagram and suddenly took Urfi Javed's name without any context. Chetan also mentions that Urfi is just a distraction to all the guys whose picture is nothing more than hiding in their blankets.
According to the media report, Chetan Bhagat said, “I told guys to focus on fitness and their career and not waste their time on Instagram. Apparently that's not ok! So they cut my statement, say it out of context, the headline with adding things I never said and do a click-bait piece with ageism thrown in too. Of course”. Chetan further adds, “Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits?" In the end, he said that “On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed's photos hiding in their blankets”.
Meanwhile, Urfi Javed also did not sit silent and lashed out at Chetan Bhagat and said that “Men like him will always blame the women than accepting their own shortcomings. Stop promoting rape culture you sickos out there. Blaming women's clothes for the behaviour of men is so 80s Mr Chetan Bhagat”.
Also, actress Rutuja Sawant also slammed Chetan Bhagat and said "We are soon to enter 2023 but so-called 'educated' people of our society are busy mocking a woman for her fashion choices. Oh man, when will your mindset change? Don't you guys feel shy while making a girl's outfits as a matter of discussion on a public platform? How can you blame a woman's fashion choices for the youth of India lagging behind? I strongly condemn comments made by the so-called author, Chetan Bhagat”. In the end, Rutuja added “This is not the first time a woman has been a subject of discussion about her fashion choices. Samay aage chal raha hai lekin kuch logo ki soch abhi bhi bhot piche reh gyi hai.' It's high time he upgrades his mindset and try to take this country forward not backward”.
