A Twitter user tagged Richa, Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker, and Konkona Sen Sharma and asked if they would condemn the remarks made by Randeep in the clip that has surfaced. Responding to the tweet, Richa wrote, “It’s a despicable ‘joke’. It’s crass, tasteless and sexist.”


“Yes. It’s casteist too. Also, plz explain to the reason why you continue to ask ONLY women to apologise for their male colleagues while you pontificate on sexism. Not holding my breath,” she wrote in another tweet.


The video in question is a 43-second clip from an event organised by a media house in 2012. The video resurfaced this week leading to outrage over the actor’s offensive remarks. Soon after the video went viral, Hooda was also removed as the ambassador of the Convention for the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS), United Nation’s environmental treaty as the organisation found it offensive. They also said that they were not aware of the remarks at the time he was appointed as the ambassador in 2020.
