MTV Roadies’ seventeenth season has started and the first episode itself created controversies. Roadies is a reality show that is immensely popular among youths. The show has fun, tasks, entertainment and drama. The show is also famous for its abusive content. There are several judges who judge this show. One of the Roadies judges is Bollywood actress Neha Dhupia.
Neha Dhupia is the part of the gang leaders on Roadies Revolution for a long time now. Recently Neha Dhupia slammed a contestant Karan Kapoor in Roadies Revolution. She made comments saying that it was the girl’s choice to be with five boys at the same time and blamed the contestant that he might be having a problem that he might not be keeping a girl physically, and emotionally. Neha also stated that the problem must lie with the boy. The video of slamming the contestant did not go down well with the audiences as they started trolling the actress. Neha Dhupia faced a lot of rage in social media from the viewers. She is being trolled and social media Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter flooded with memes targeting Neha.
Now, Neha has finally opened up about all the criticism and trolling she faced after the video went viral and shared a length note.
“Roadies is a show that I have been a part of for five years and enjoyed every bit of it. It takes me all over India and gives me the opportunity to team up with absolute rock stars from all parts of the country. What I do not like or accept is what is happening for more than two weeks now! Recently during one of the episodes that aired, I took a stand against violence.
A guy talked about his partner who cheated on him (allegedly) and in retaliation, he hit her by his own admission. What the girl did is a choice she made which is a moral choice regardless of someone, man or woman… adultery is a moral choice. Cheating is not something I stand for, and it is unfortunate that I have been misrepresented for the same… but what I do stand for is women’s safety.
Sadly, as a reaction to my opinion, I have been subjected to weeks of vitriol. One of my posts had over 56k comments! Yet I was silent but now people close to me who have nothing to do with this – my family, my friends, my co-workers and even my dad’s personal WhatsApp are being flooded with abuses and harassment. My daughter’s page is nothing less than a barrage of abuses and this is not acceptable to me.
What a man or a woman does in a relationship is their choice and moral choices are always ambiguous. But no matter what they are, they cannot lead to physical abuse. I stand by the fact that NO MATTER WHAT … physical abuse or assault is not acceptable. Obviously, a man’s physical strength is a lot more than girls and gender-based violence against women is a huge problem in our country and across the world… I urge people, whether a man or woman, to educate themselves about domestic violence… If you’re a victim of abuse, please stand up for yourself. You are not alone.
