She is full of life, energy and most importantly always smiling. Remember the girl with red streaked hair in Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na? Meet Sugandha Garg, the next ‘it-girl’ on the block! The ‘spontaneous’ actor was recently in Delhi for her show It happens only in India, which showcases some of the most amazing and quirky stories from across the country.
Last seen on a television show, What’s with Indian Men Sugandha says, “Indian men are really close to their moms, they are ‘momma’s boys’. But, they take real care of their women. On the other hand, they are really confused about the concept of the ‘modern’ woman.” Ask her about the men in Delhi, she laughs and says, “Men in Delhi are slightly aggressive, they are possessive and even flirt.”
Gul Panag, former Miss India and Bollywood Actress, complained about eve teasing in Delhi on Twitter, a social networking website. According to Gul Panang’s tweet : “Delhi men won’t let go of any opportunity to touch women.” After reading this tweet post many inhabitants of Delhi felt offensive. According to them just because of the misdeeds of one or two people, we can not blame the whole city.
However, Gul Panag was defensive and later said that she has full right to generalize the statement as it is not about a celebrity but about every women in Delhi. She strongly felt that women of Delhi would agree to her experience. Apart from Gul Panag, few other bollywood celebrities are of the same opinion. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Minnssha Lamba, actor and model said ” Men are same every where .. their behavior depends on their social conditioning” Sophie Choudry, a singer, also said “The average Delhi Guy still has a slightly regressive attitude towards women.”
