Singer Sona Mohapatra took to her Twitter handle to take a dig at Salman Khan for making sarcastic remarks on Priyanka Chopra in his interviews.
For those unaware, Priyanka Chopra quit his film 'Bharat' last year citing her wedding with Nick Jonas as the reason. And Salman Khan during 'Bharat' promotions went on to say that Chopra chose USA in the 'nick' of time over 'Bharat'. He then said, "She, over Bharat, did choose USA in the 'nick' of time. She has worked so hard all her life, okay? And when she got the biggest film of her life, she dumped that film and got married. You know, hats off! Usually, people leave their husbands for a film like this.".
So, commenting on this, Sona Mohapatra wrote: "Cus @priyankachopra has better things to do in life, real men to hang out with & more importantly, girls to inspire with her journey.” She added, “A showcase & poster child of toxic masculinity. Low brow dig at not only a woman who was not in the room but a disgusting disregard & contempt for the woman & colleague sitting next to him in the same room. Unless we call out such serial bad behaviour, nothing changes, #India."
She further went on to say, "Trying telling that to his fans who shadow his toxicity & are calling her derogatory names on my timeline. They meme her 10 year age gap with her husband but conveniently forget that their idol is close to 20 years older than her. Grow up, you fools, I say to them."
Below are the tweets -
Salman Khan in a recent interview said, "After all this, the ‘Nick story’ happened, the embarrassing thing happened and she chose to get married... Look, she did the right thing. She did what she wanted, and Katrina got what she deserved. She (Priyanka) informed us five days before the schedule was supposed to start... she must have thought that in this way I would get upset with her and will never work with her. She spoke to me saying, ‘Nick has proposed to me and I want to get married, so there will be some date issues’. I said, ‘Sure, get married, we can adjust those two, three days. Then she said that she does not want to do the film."
'Bharat' is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, and stars Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover and Nora Fatehi. The film will hit theatres on June 5.
