New Delhi, May 14 (ANI): Mira Rajput received a lot of flak for her comment over working women, about wanting to stay at home because Misha is not a puppy who she would spend an hour with, and then rush to work. Reacting to it, Shahid Kapoor's wife in an interview to a leading daily clarified that she was speaking her mind and her intention was not to offend or hurt anyone. "Could I have chosen my words better? Maybe. But I am not a seasoned actor and I don't know how to be politically correct. I was speaking for a certain section of women who aren't given their due... Women who stay at home and take care of the children or work from home deserve to be celebrated as much." When asked if she should be cautious about what she says, she quipped, "I am not an actor or a public figure, I have the luxury to be politically incorrect." For the unversed, Mira's comment had sparked off a debate of sorts and a lot of working mothers had slammed her for her insensitive remarks. Later, Shahid had also come out in support of Mira, saying that it wasn't her intention to hurt anybody but she was just speaking her mind.
