New Delhi, June 26: Haryanvi dancer Sapna Chaudhary on Tuesday hit back at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ashwini Kumar Chopra over ‘thumkewali’ remark saying, whatever a person speaks is based on his own ideology.
Chaudhary said she does not seek an apology from Chopra adding I am an entertainer. I am focused on my work.
“Whatever a person speaks is based on his own ideology. You can’t stop anybody from speaking. It’s not my job to stop anyone. My job is to entertain. There are few names used to call us which we feel bad for. However this does not really affect us. I don’t want him to apologise as he is older than me. I respect him a lot. I did not feel anything about this”, she asserted.
After Sapna reportedly visited UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi’s office on Sunday, Chopra said the Congress party must decide what is more important to them, winning elections or ‘thumkas’ (dance move).
On the related note, she told ANI “I am not joining any political party. I have no interest in the field. It would be meaningless to say anything on the remark (made by Chopra). He is a politician and should think before speaking. Still if he has said something then also it does not affect me. I’m okay with that.”
As per the reports, Chaudhary visited Sonia’s office on June 24; however, she was unable to meet the UPA Chairperson.
