Actress Sadia Khateeb has criticized Akshay Kumar’s film Raksha Bandhan after it was labeled as ‘regressive’ by many viewers. In the film, Sadia plays the role of Akshay’s sister Gayatri. In a recent interview, Sadia said she’s okay with people’s different perspectives. (Read also: Raksha Bandhan box office day 1 collection)

Directed by Aanand L Rai, Raksha Bandhan centers on the story of Akshay Kumar as Lala Kedarnath, who promises to marry off his four sisters before he can marry his girlfriend, played by Bhumi Pednekar. Apart from Sadia, Deepika Khanna, Smrithi Srikanth and Sahejmeen Kaur play Akshay’s sisters. While the film highlights the special bond between a brother and sister, he has also been accused of using words like ‘bunk’ and ‘amavas ki raat’ for the women in the film.

Talking about this, Sadia told India Today, “Agar double-decker aur amavas waali baatein koi aur karta, toh mujhe problematic lagta (If someone else was talking about double-deckers and amavas, then I would find it problematic). I don’t even want to mention the names my own brother uses for me. There is nothing more regressive and problematic than that.”

“If you want to show the reality of brother-brother relationship, toh aapko bhi pata hai, if you have a brother, vo gharpe kaisa treat karta hain. Mera bhai toh kehta hain mujhe taras aata hain un logo pe, jaha pe teri shaadi hogi, kitne gunaah chadenge hum jab hum tumhe denge (I feel sorry for those people you will marry). He says things like that. Some will laugh at this, some will say “tere bhai kitna badtameez hai (your brother is shameless)” even though he is the best brother in the world. Some people will still have all different perspectives. It is OK. People have choices. People have perspectives. It’s okay,” he added.
