Dear Kangana,Let me just start this letter by stating how much over the years we have applauded your personality. I would be lying if I say I have always agreed with your statements. Whether it is your comments about nepotism, your stormy relationships or about Bollywood’s glorification of harassment, there are times I have had a different stand on the things you so passionately and honestly spoke up about. But I kept up the spirit of what Voltaire said, ‘I might not agree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to say it’. Yes, I on occasions did not agree with you, but the fact that the things that were never spoken even behind closed doors became a national discourse because you dared to speak up against them, is one credit that no one can snatch away from you.I have seen you openly talking about men using their gender privileges and the biggies of Bollywood looking down upon people just because they did not have a Khan or Kapoor next to their names. It was refreshing to see a voice in Bollywood that was so full of clarity and opinions. To be very honest, I do not share your views on feminism, but the fact that you identify yourself as one is a welcoming change in a sea of people in Bollywood who run away from the dreaded F-word.The fact that even after not being a blind devotee of your’s , I found it in myself to respect your notions and ideas speak volumes on what an impact you have had on the masses and even the people who do not necessarily adore whatever you do!But seeing you cracking up at the crass joke made by Jim Sarbh is just a haunting disappointment that I can hardly get over. I realize its futile to argue with a person who thinks saying ‘ I would rather let 12 prostitutes rape me before touching alcohol’ is funny and that’s why I would not wish to air my opinion on this comment made by Jim Sarbh, though its equally shattering to hear this from a person who came across as such a refined artist. But you standing there beside him and laughing at this abominable statement is just the highest degree of disappointment. Were you not one of the strongest voice of reason whenSalman made an equally distasteful joke about rape? Were you not one of the strongest voice in Bollywood that roared against pay disparity? Were you not one of the most significant voice against Bollywood using women as sex objects in films?You can claim it was taken out of context and whatever you want to claim, but your action just undid whatever image of champion of female rights people had of you. The fact that it was said in a party where there was no audience present makes it even more impactful, given it pushes forward the notion that your sensitivities are different in private and public. You can be whoever you want to be in public and private, that’s your discretion entirely, but this confuses us! How do we call it anything buthypocrisy?No, I do not want to say that you used feminist propaganda as a method of promoting the slew ofwoman-oriented filmsthat you were doing, but with a heavy heart, I have to accept that at this point it is difficult to think of it in any other way!As somebody who has had a humble upbringing, you would definitely understand what privileges and the lack thereof mean to people. Whether you accept it or not, it’s a fact that you are a privileged individual owing to your star status in Bollywood, thus understand one thing, every time you play the feminist card and get away with something and then laugh at distasteful rape jokes in a private party, there is an admirer of your’s and a true feminist at heart who gets ridiculed because she once defended you, and not all them have all of them enjoy the privileges you do.Looking at the present scenario I truly have more respect for actresses who never understood the word feminism and dreaded calling them one. Yes, my queen, that’s how disappointed I am!-Your’s SincerelyA disappointed fellow feminist
