Sharmin Segal clears the air about her comment on Meena Kumari

Now in a recent conversation with Zoom, Sharmin revealed how her take on Meena Kumari was misinterpreted. Clearing the air on her statement, Sharmin said:

“I don’t know why people are leaving out the sentence that I said which was, ‘I tried to emulate the way Meena Kumari ji looks into nothingness’ and just extracting the word ‘nothingness’ from what I said. In no way was I calling Meena Kumariji or her performance in Paakeezah ‘nothingness’. That is not something I would ever do. I was referring to the way she stares into infinity and looks at something celestial that only she can see, whereas in reality there is nothing there."

Going further in the interview, Sharmin also revealed that people only picked the negative words of her statement. The actress also stated that she never compared herself with the legend, Meena Kumari. In her words:

"It is just sad how people have literally only picked up one negative word, which wasn’t meant to be negative and taken it out of context. I would also like to make one more thing clear on this issue. I would never compare myself to Meena Kumariji. She is a legend. I was just inspired by her greatness. As an artist, we are always inspired by our surroundings and the people we look up to. It was never a comparison.”

“No no, insecurity is horrible. No, I don’t like it.”
