WTF News!?


I generally keep away from such News, But, this, I had to talk about!
It's seriously categorised into WTF news!

Here, Mr. Dutt talks about his wife being THE Mrs.Dutt and how he "forgives his sister" and

he goes onto make the statement - "no sister gets along with her brother's wife".. really?!!

Isn't that taking the whole relationship to a weird and distorted level?
Possessiveness is different from hatred.. and I'm quite sure that all sisters/brothers would like to see their siblings well settled, protected and successful in life...
He says that all girls should take their husband's name after marriage else its disrespectful!
He says that if Manyatha had retained her father's name after marriage , he would've been offended!
What a truck load of garbage he speaks!!
I heard that her name isn't Manyatha in the first place and its sure that whatever name she did have before marriage, it didn't have her "Father's surname" attached to it!
What century is he living in?

Its kind of difficult to even say anything about the whole topic without going "ARRRGH"!
Do we really need or want another politician like this?! Don't we have enough?!!
Aren't we trying to do something different now-a-days?!

The tone in which he speaks, of his sisters, and of women in particular seems highly disrespectful.
And from all the info I gathered, apparently, it was his sister Priya Dutt who stood by his side when he was accused of all his various crimes, helped him with rehab and stood by the family when their father died... And, he goes on print by making such a comment on his sister....
I didn't know Mr. Dutt would speak in such a garish manner and as I read in MadMomma's Blog, he is where is he is because of his father and she goes on to say that he neither has the looks nor the talent, to which one has to agree...
This so-called interview of his in all leading papers is definitely WTF news?!!

very sad to see his interview, and worse is to see the state of indian politics where anyone can stand for elections, may be tomorrow someone will give a ticket to Monika bedi also, are we so short of candidates. Forgiving a crime and respecting a criminal are two different things. I just hope he doesnt win, though in a country like us where eevery filmstar is worshipped everything is possible.
Even his father Sunil dutt also must be squirming in his grave.

The siblings are fighting over political heritage of Sunil Dutt. Sanjay Dutt is dumb and a bad actor, anyway. I hate his idiotic comments

illusionaire said...

ouch, especially at this part of the interview from the source:

That’s a message not just to my sisters, but to all girls who hang on to their parents’ surname.

!!!!!!!!!!!!

But then again, I can't say anything coz we dont follow this custom in our Mizo society anymore. Sometime back, the new wife had to take the tribe/clan name of the husband, but around 80% of the married folks I know today don't do that anymore. (we dont have surnames, first names etc in our society. Just one name followed by our clan name). Im just thinking, if our society that is much younger and fairly recent (compared to Mainland India civilization) can throw away this practice, I dont think it should be difficult for the larger societies to do the same. Or is it because of this exact reason that it is difficult to do so?

Seriously, i went WTF too. I can never never understand this taking husband's name thing. i guess what was a pratical purpose once has now become many other agenda and meanings.

@Pixie, Jumped over from your comment on my blog. You are so right - this is WTF news! Makes me mad that someone like Sanjay Dutt has the cheek to make such comment!

Dear god, I should show your blog to my soon to be better half. She would so vehemently agree. Was very disappointed to see his interview.

wisegirl said...

Manyata's real name is Dilnawaz Sheikh.

Sanjay Dutt just took first step towards politics and that is to create an uproar. Now everyone is talking about him. In this day and age any publicity is good so as always he chose negative publcity. Also he is not the smartest lad around.

cluelessness said...

I wonder if he is actually saying all this to gain some "political mileage"?

Politicians always play for the gallery, so once the majority of our country pooh-poohs such stuff, these people will change their game accordingly.

It was sickening, really...washing dirty, stained linen in public. I think we should just quarantine the whole bunch of idiots and thugs.

rayshma said...

haven't read the news yet.
but the dutt u're talking about is a bloody criminal. and nobody really knows his wife's past, do they?
the fact that he can join politics... can happen only in india, can't it?

LAK said...

Aaargh is right. I thought the man had some sense. Just goes to show that even we "thinking adults" can get carried away by "Munnabhai"---confusing the character with the person. Sigh!

oh man, i think we are all unanimously disgusted with the comments he has been making lately.once he joins politics he will give us many more such gems... why doesnt he stick to acting, i wonder.
