Mumbai: Miss World Manushi Chhillar has said Indian women “do not feel persecuted and face challenges head-on” even though there is a feeling that “our society is not very woman-friendly”.
Manushi said this during a media interaction here on Monday. She was expressing her views over the row surrounding Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film “Padmavati”.
“All Indian women have one thing in common… we don’t feel persecuted for who we are and actually face our challenges head-on.
“I think that’s what we need to do, we need to be confident about who we are,” she said on the death threats received by Deepika Padukone, who plays the lead in Bhansali’s magnum opus on the Chittor queen.
“We will face a lot of limitations and sometimes we do feel that it is not a very woman-friendly society.
