“Today, I am ashamed of calling myself a DAUGHTER OF INDIA (sic).” is what a famous actress wrote reacting to reports that she is dating a much younger male costar. Actress Munmun Dutta became famous for playing Babita Ji in the serial ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’.
Some sections of the Bollywood media reported that Dutta is in a relationship with her costar Raj Anadkat who plays Tappu in the same show. The model turned actress lashed out on both the general public and the media in separate angry posts that she later deleted.
Munmun wrote “To the general public, I had far better expectations from you. But the FILTH that you have showered in the comment section, even from the so called ‘LITERATE’ ones proves how regressive a society we are (sic). Women are constantly AGE SHAMED, SLUT SHAMED, MOM SHAMED, at the cost of your humour. Whether YOUR humour drives someone to the edge of a mental breakdown or not, is NEVER your concern. 13 years of entertaining people and it didnn’t take 13 minutes for anyone of you to RIP MY DIGNITY APART. So next time someone is clinically depressed or driven to take their own lives, pause and think whether it was YOUR WORDS that drove that person to the edge or not (sic).”
She was also severe on the media as well writing “To the media and their zero credibility ‘journos’, who has given u the right to post ‘IMAGINARY’ ‘MADE UP’ articles in people’s name about their private life without their consent? R u liable to the damage that you cause to their lives with your reckless behaviour? You don’t stop at shoving your cameras on the face of a grieving woman who has just lost her love or lost her son, in a funeral, just for your trps. You can stoop to any level to create sensational articles/ headlines at the cost of someone’s dignity, but R U GOING TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WRECKING HAVOC IN THEIR LIVES?? If No then, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!! (sic).”.
Munmun Dutta apart from her serials has also acted in a few films and one of her earlier ones is Kamal Haasan’s ‘Mumbai Xpress’ released in the year 2005. She has also starred in ‘Holiday’ as well.
