Director Farah Khan has hurt the sentiments of Chembur businessman Abdul Samad Khan with her comments on TV show Dus Ka Dum.
Farah, who appeared with actress Deepika Padukone on the show on August 1, reportedly said, “Mard kutte hote hain, lekin wafadar nahin hote.”
Angered by the comment, Abdul filed a complaint against Farah with the Social Service Branch on Tuesday.
Abdul, who owns a consultancy firm, said, “Farah should not have forgotten that she was on television. Such offensive language against men is unacceptable.
Our Constitution grants equal rights to both the sexes and she has no right to compare men with animals.”
When asked whether he wanted an apology, Abdul said, “We will take the legal route now. Strict action should be taken against her.”
R R Joshi of the Social Service branch said, “It is not a cognisable offence, but we will take necessary action only after taking a legal opinion.”
Anita Basu, producer, Dus Ka Dum refused to comment saying, “I just learnt of the complaint. I don’t know what he is talking about.”
