Rani Mukherjee Just Embarrassed Herself While Deepika, Anushka And Alia Tried To Educate Her About Me Too

By Sajeer Shaikh | 30 Dec, 2018

Man, it’s like the older generation of Bollywood actresses are on an absolute roll when it comes to the Me Too movement. First Priety, now Rani Mukherjee.

I mean, remember when Priety Zinta showed up to an interview where she said she wished she’d been harassed.

I’m sorry, no one says this shit sober. Anyway, she blamed the editor for the train wreck of an interview. This was her version of an apology, I guess.

Now, imagine. You used to be a top Bollywood actress. You’ve seen other actresses make the mistake of victim blaming. You’re old enough to educate yourself on the matter, but more than that, you’re literally surrounded by other women trying to tell you not to blame the victims of sexual assault for sexual assault. The only man on the table is agreeing with these women.

What do you do in such a case? Common sense would dictate you take your point back and humbly try to learn.

But common sense seems to have escaped Rani Mukherjee in this absolute cringefest of an interview. Please watch her make an absolute fool of herself here:

“You have to have the courage to protect yourself.”

“Those are the women we need to talk that you guys need to change yourselves”

“We have to take responsibility of our own selves. Before saying that you take this responsibility, what is our responsibility.”

Actual sentences uttered by Rani during the course of this interview, despite Deepika and Anushka interrupting and trying to explain things like “not everyone can fight back” or “why not hold the perpetrator responsible.”

Y’all, Alia Bhatt had to interrupt and legit talk slowly for her point to get across to Rani. (It didn’t.) Imagine getting schooled by Alia Bhatt. Alia’s seen the world a lot lesser than you, Rani. Banda thori sharam kar leta hai. 

Also, this is the exact moment when Alia realized that Rani done fucked up.

Can’t make this up, folks. Just watch the whole video. I’m not going to lie, I had to stop watching it the first time around because of the second-hand embarrassment I felt for Rani. But I also wanted to release my anger through this piece, so I guess it was worth it.

Anyway, people who have been scarred by this video are reacting in ways I expected them to react. They’re ripping Rani’s “discourse” apart:

Like…I can’t even. How does one think like this? How privileged do you have to be?

HOW, as a woman, do you place the blame on victims? How?

This person pointed out how Ash is the most sensible one out of the lot. I just want to know – why? 

Why does only experiencing a certain level of trauma guarantee empathy? I love Ash for being strong and vocal, but why can’t women like Priety and Rani learn? Especially when Me Too is putting forth narratives and stories that help you understand victims better. Hadh hai.

Anyway, people also called out Rani for prioritizing her movie’s promotion.

If this is legit, it’s just sick. Movies do not trump sexual assault movements, Rani.

And well, most people are pretty much calling Rani out for her toxic AF views.

Anyway, I am both Alia and Deepika as I watched this interview unfold.

Let’s get some stuff straight. When a victim is being assaulted, they may not necessarily be in a position to fight back. Despite years of training and learning all forms of self-defense, sometimes, you freeze. Athletes get assaulted. Everyday folks get assaulted. And it’s ALWAYS the perpetrator’s fault.

I can’t believe it’s almost 2019 and this needs to be explained, even to women like Rani Mukherjee. Anyway, let me know what you think of the steaming pile of garbage that this interview was.
