Actor Shahid Kapoor stands by his wife Mira Rajput’s views on motherhood and feminism, and says she only spoke her mind when she said her child isn’t a “puppy” to be left at home.
According to Shahid, she had no intention of hurting anyone.
Misha is better than anything I could ever ask for: Shahid
This comment earned her the wrath of several working mothers via social media. Defending Mira, Shahid said on Wednesday night, “She clearly said ‘I think we are in a time where everybody is getting hurt about everything’, so I honestly don’t feel there is any sense in trying to keep everyone happy. I think Mira started the conversation by saying that these are my personal comments.”

Shahid’s next project is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. On Tuesday night, the set of the film in Kolhapur was vandalised and set on fire. Shahid called the incident “unfortunate,” adding, “I am not aware of the fact that who has done it and the reason behind it.”
Padmavati also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The film is scheduled to release on November 17.
