New Delhi: Uorfi Javed is not the one to mince her words, she has always been known to speak her mind. The former Bigg Boss OTT contestant has now slammed veteran actor Jaya Bachchan for the viral video in which the latter is seen getting angry at a paparazzo and telling him that she ‘hopes’ he falls.
Uorfi took to her Instagram stories to share the video and wrote, “Did she just say ‘I hope you double and fall’. Please let’s not be like her, let’s hope all of us only rise. Be it the one behind the camera or in front. People won’t respect you because you’re elder to them or more powerful, they’ll respect you if you’re nice to them.”
In the next story, she said how by being opinionated she is losing her chances of getting work in the industry. She wrote, “Trust me sometimes I hate it too that I’m so opinionated, I wanna control but dayum this mouth. I know I’m ruining my work opportunities by speaking up but yaar chup nahi raha jata. I feel when you’re quiet on matters that don’t bother you, it shows how entitled you are. Apne ghar paani bijli aati hai, toh jinke ghar nahi aati unke liye hum kyun bole. Yeh wo waali baat lagti hai mujhe! (I feel it’s the same as not caring about people who do not have access to electricity and water just because you have it!) I know all human beings can never be at an equal level but at least we all can get equal opportunities to grow – for that we all need to raise our voices.”
For the unversed, Jaya Bachchan and Navya Naveli’s video from Lakme Fashion Week recently got viral. In the video, the duo was snapped by the assembled media when a paparazzo stumbled. “Serves you right,” Jaya was heard on tape addressing the man. She also added, “I hope you double up and fall!”
