Mira Kapoor talked about feminism in the old video

Going further, in the video, Mira Kapoor talked about feminism. She stated that empowerment means it gives people the idea to choose whatever they like, and it's her choice to be at home. Mira mentioned that feminism isn't something that can be tagged as man vs woman, but rather that it talks about equality. Mentioning that she feels the idea of aggression in feminism is destructive, Mira mentioned:

"Feminism isn’t woman vs man. It’s about equality. A new wave of feminism has come that is aggressive... I feel it’s destructive. There’s a new term called ‘feminazi’, which is the female equivalent of a chauvinist. I think there should be harmony between the two sexes and an equilibrium."

Shahid Kapoor came in support of Mira after her 'She isn't a puppy' interview went viral

For the unversed, this video was back in 2017, and Mira gave this interview on International Women’s Day. For her comments, the diva drew a lot of flak. However, later, Shahid Kapoor backed her and revealed that Mira's statement was basically misinterpreted. The actor clearly stated that his wife's intention was not to disrespect any other women, rather, she wanted to talk about a certain section of women who are not represented. An excerpt from Shahid's interview could be read as:

"When Mira started the conversation, she said those were her personal comments. I don’t think she meant to comment at anybody or any category of women. I think she was talking from a very personal standpoint. I think Mira is speaking for a section of women who aren’t being represented. There are times when those women feel like they should not be celebrated..by that I mean the women who may not be doing a job outside, women who might choose to be at home, have a baby, take care of that baby and consider that something important enough to do."
