Palak Tiwari Says Her Statement About Salman Khan’s Rule For Women Was Misunderstood, ‘All I Wanted To..’
Palak Tiwari recently stirred waves on the internet when she got candid about a cardinal rule that Salman Khan had made in regards to women on the sets of Antim and their dressing attire. According to Palak who was an assistant in that film, the actor had asked the women to not wear low necklines. Her revelation prompted some netizens to express their offense on social media. Now Palak Tiwari has come forward with a clarification that her statement was misconstrued.
As quoted by ETimes, Palak Tiwari said in a statement, “It’s really been misunderstood. All I wanted to say is that I have put certain guidelines for myself as to how to dress around people who are way senior to me, who have I pretty much grown up idolising. Salman sir is of course one of them.”
Earlier while speaking with Siddarth Kannan, Palak Tiwari had shared, “When I was AD-ing with Salman sir on Antim, I don’t think many people know this, Salman Sir had a rule ‘Ki koi bhi ladki mere set pe, neckline should be here (for every girl on my set, the neckline should be here), all the girls should be covered, like good proper girls’. So my mom saw me (going to set) in proper shirt, jogger and covered and all. She was like, ‘Where are you going? How are you dressed so well?’ I said I am going to Salman Sir’s set. She was like ‘Wow, very good’.”
She had further added, “He’s a traditionalist… Of course, he’s like ‘Jo pehenna hai pehno (wear what you like)’, but he’s always like ‘My girls should always be protected’. If there are men around, whom she doesn’t personally know, it’s not his personal space where he doesn’t trust everyone, he’s like, ‘the girl should be safe, always’.”
Interestingly, Palak Tiwari is making a debut with Salman Khan starrer Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan. The film is slated to release on April 21, on the occasion of Eid. The film also stars Pooja Hegde, Shehnaaz Gill, Venkatesh Daggubati, Jagapathi Babu, Bhumika Chawla, Vijender Singh, Abhimanyu Singh, Raghav Juyal, Siddharth Nigam, Jassie Gill and Vinali Bhatnagar in pivotal roles.
