Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan talking about Zaira's incident said that women are capable of fighting out of every situation in life. Kareena spoke about women's strengths at the red carpet of the Lux Golden Rose Awards here in Mumbai on Sunday night. She was asked to comment on teenage actress Zaira Wasim's alleged harassment by a middle-aged man during a flight.

"I think women are way more superior than men. We are fighters and whatever the situation might be in our life -- be it personal or professional -- we all come out as fighters,'' she said.

"Like I said before, we call our god Laxmi, we pray to her and she is a woman, and when we talk about our land, we call it motherland... So, women are way more superior. We will fight out of every situation in life," Kareena said.

Zaira, apart from celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Sridevi, Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Bhumi Pednekar and Sushant Singh Rajput, were present for the event.

Kareena was asked who her favourite is in present-day Bollywood. She said: "All the actresses, be it Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone or Katrina Kaif, I think all of them are great achievers in their careers. We all have worked for more than 12-15 years, so taking one name wouldn't be nice because, for me, I think everybody is an achiever."

Kareena also bagged an award for 'I Am More Than You Can See Award' at the ceremony.

On the work front, Kareena is busy wrapping her first venture with Sonam Kapoor titled Veere Di Wedding. It will release in May next year.

Meanwhile actress Bhumi Pednekar talking about the incident said, “I am appalled. She is a child. There is a problem in our culture where people think, especially if you are an actress, that you are their property. This is hugely problematic. But I am very happy that she put it out on social media. I am glad she took that step because it needs a lot of courage to speak, to come out and take a stand like that. More power to her.” 

Pink star Taapsee Pannu supporting Zaira said, ''I just hope she gets justice. It is good that at least she has raised her voice. She deserves to get justice.”
