In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, when Sonakshi Sinha was quizzed about the same, she defended her ‘Mission Mangal’ co-star. The actress told the daily, “They also have to understand that I have a great friendship and working equation with him, so he was talking about a friend and not a random person. If anything, he was being a gentleman and defending me with no intention of “objectifying” anyone. And if I, the person being referred to, has absolutely no problem with what was said, I don’t think anyone else should either. People need to start utilizing their time better rather than digging up stupid things and making an issue of it.”
