Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi recently remarked that the phrase “catfight” is a misogynistic term. The actress noted that while men fight as well, their fights are not referred to as “dog fights.”
Discussing the rumours of catfights in Bollywood, Huma told the times, “They are not just rumours! People fight, but catfights are a misogynistic way of putting it. Men also fight, but we don’t call them dog fights, do we? People fight because they don’t get along, and it’s not about their gender.”
“I think anytime women compete with each other. It is a big deal. I think men compete far more. Try going to a gym, you will see exactly what I am mean. No one is interested in working out, they are only checking out each other’s bodies,” added the actress.
At present, Huma has some interesting projects lined up, including a biopic on noted food writer and chef Tarla Dalal. In the works, she also has a Netflix project titled “Monica Oh My Darling”, directed by Vasan Bala.
