Shilpa Shetty has said women still have to fight for their rights, identity and for their children. The actor addressed up about women’s struggle in the society on Super Dancer 4, after watching a performance inspired by Rani Laxmi Bai. A clip featuring the performance and her reaction to it was shared by Sony Entertainment Television’s Instagram handle. Sharing her verdict of the performance, Shilpa said she sees a reflection of the society when she listens to Laxmi Bai’s story.
“Main Jhansi ki Rani ke baare mein jab bhi sunti hu, mujhe aise lagta hai ke samaj ka chehra dikta hai. Kyun ki aaj bhi, aurat ko apne haq ke liye, apne pati ke baad, ladai ladni padti hai, apne astitva ke liye, apne bachcho ke liye. (Every time I listen about Jhansi Ki Rani, I feel like I can see the society’s face because even today, women have to fight for their rights, after their husbands, fight for their entity, and for their children.) This story, it gives us women the power to fight and she fought with her life. Jhansi ki Rani was really a superwoman,” Shilpa said.
“This was reality, this is our history and it just makes me very proud that we come from a country of such fearless women. Mera seena na chauda ho jata hai ke koi bhi situation ho, hum aurato mein wo power hai, ke hum lad sakte hai, uss aurat ke liye jo apne haq ke liye ladti hai, unn sabhi ko aaj mera sashtang dandvat pranam (My heart fills with pride that no matter what the situation, we women have that power that we can fight. To the women to fight for their rights, I pay my respect),” she added.
Shilpa made a comeback on Super Dancer 4, a week after her husband Raj Kundra was arrested. The actor is yet to share her reaction about the arrest but issued a statement requesting media to spare her and her family from the public trial.
