In an interview to Bombay Times, she clarifies her stance that she was just speaking her mind and her intention was not to degrade or hurt anyone.
"Could I have chosen my words better? Maybe. But I am not a seasoned actor and I don't know how to be politically correct. I was speaking for a certain section of women who aren't given their due... Women who stay at home and take care of the children or work from home deserve to be celebrated as much."
