One of the most common stunts pulled by interviewer’s time and again is questioning the female celebrities inappropriately. Their efforts at throwing embarrassment in the way of our Bollywood divas has been constant while the actresses on the receiving end may change. The thought process behind this is obviously that women are assumed to be easy targets, thought to be easily embarrassed. The media couldn’t get any more wrong if this is what they feel because our Bollywood divas are not only fitting on screen, but also seem to have a fitting reply to all the rubbish questions that come their way!

Imagine how long the interviewer would have taken to recover from this burn!

At a press conference by whisper, Parineeti Chopra put a reporter back in his place when he tried to act over smart by claiming that he has no knowledge on the subject of periods.

We all know her as the savage star who has an answer to everything. However, she gave outdid herself when she replied to a question, “When man slaps a woman, it’s a crime, but when a girl slaps a man, it is feminism. Where is the equality?” She very sportingly and sarcastically said how equality is not about being like a man physically. It is about equal opportunities; it is about not being questioned on their personal and professional life.
Katrina Kaif had reporters pouncing all over her when she came out of the Mumbai Airport.
