Samir Soni on Bollywood supporting Rhea Chakraborty and sharing ‘smash patriarchy’ slogan: It’s becoming a gender issue

Rhea Chakraborty’s t-shirt slogan, ‘Roses are red, violets are blue, let’s smash the patriarchy, me and you’ became viral on social media with many celebrities sharing it on their respective handles. Actor Samir Soni, who has been following the case like others, felt that this was totally unrelated to the ongoing case.

Spilling some beans on the same, Samir told a news portal that he failed to understand how all of a sudden, from talking about innocent or guilty, people went on to talk about sexism. According to the actor, the people who did support this have done a great deal of disservice to the movement of feminism, or gender equality by raising an issue as important as that for a totally unrelated thing.

Elaborating further, he added that he didn’t get what their motivation was behind raising this, and that someone needs to tell them that when you use an important cause for an issue which is totally unrelated, then you are trying to hijack that situation for something else.

Samir also added that he is happy with the way the case is progressing. According to him, Rhea’s arrest is the first step towards justice and there is no other way of looking at it. He also stated we gave local authorities almost two months to figure out, we should at least give CBI and NCB and ED at least a few months to probe.
