EXCLUSIVE: Siddhant Chaturvedi breaks silence on Freddy Birdy’s ‘necklines and hemlines’ comment on Deepika Padukone and Ananya Panday

Siddhant Chaturvedi’s recently released movie, Gehraiyaan has been the talk of the town ever since its release, which features Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday, and Dhairya Karwa in the pivotal roles. Siddhant’s character as Zain has stolen the show with his magnificent performance in the film Gehraiyaan.

While Deepika and Ananya were appreciated for their promotional looks, one particular influencer took the misogynistic route.  It all began when Freddy Birdy shared a post seemingly, targeting the clothes worn by the female stars of Gehrayiaan during the promotions. Now, in an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Bubble, Siddhant reacted to Freddy’s necklines and hemlines’ comment on his Gehraiyaan co-stars Deepika Padukone and Ananya Panday.

The Gully Boy actor said: “Its’s very upsetting. It’s stupid. At this stage, where we have progressed, it’s 2022 and as you say kunde se kunde milake chalo. This film, it’s obviously led by Deepika and the way they put it, the way they show it, and the way they write about it. I mean, can you not see beyond that? Can you not see the strength of a woman? You cannot see the talent, you are just seeing that? It’s her choice. Whatever, anybody has to wear or whatever anybody likes should be on them. It’s a free country, but, just to pick these things out, it’s really, I think lame and not in good taste. It’s sad. What can we do? That’s their problem. It’s in their heads.”

On the work front, Siddhant will feature next in Yudhra. He will also be seen with Ananya Panday and Adarsh Gourav in Kho Gaye Hum Kahan which is slated to release in 2023.
