  1. "Even criminals, whores have money," tweeted Ms Krishnamoorthi
  2. "Let's not put them in one bracket at least," replied Ms Shahane
  3. Renuka Shahane was last seen in Bucket List

Renuka Shahane has quite a bit of a reputation for freely voicing her opinion on social media and her recent Twitter exchange with actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi demands everyone's attention. On Wednesday, Renuka Shahane voiced her opinion against a condescending tweet by Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, wherein she compared sex workers to criminals. Ms Krishnamoorthi tweeted, "Amma always said, Money is not everything. Even criminals and whores have money. What matters is not money but character and integrity. I truly understand her words only today. Jeez I've never felt more proud of my middle class roots."

In response to Suchitra Krishnamoorthi's post, Ms Shahane posted a strongly-worded tweet, wherein she schooled Ms Krishnamoorthi about how it is extremely inappropriate to "put sex workers and criminals in one bracket" and wrote: "No disrespect to your Amma, but as women let's try and correct the injustice that our traditions have imposed on whores. We castigated whores while letting off their customers who are leading "respectful" lives! Let's not put whores and criminals in one bracket at least."

The Kora Kagaz actress shared a series of posts on Twitter. She wrote: "Whores sell what is theirs. Criminals take what is others. Whores are often pushed into their profession due to human trafficking at ages as young as 7. Does any child have the right to say "no" at that age? Whores are pushed into prostitution by people they trust explicitly."

Ms Shahane went on to school the actress about how sex workers often find themselves on the receiving end of physical and mental torture and added, "Whores are abused, raped, tortured, drugged, given hormonal injections at a very early age and then raped relentlessly throughout their professional lives. Most of what should be their earnings is taken away by pimps and middlemen or middle women!"

The Bucket List actress, in her post, also touched upon the social problems faced by sex workers in India and tweeted: "Whores aren't respected by any social class in our society. Many criminals hold very respectful positions, some even in our Parliament and industry. Very often it's because of these whores that our children are safe from sexual predators. They face the brunt of society's evil."

After much ado, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi seemed to agree with Ms Shahane and replied: "Yup good point. Agree with you totally. But if you've been following my tweets on #pramodgoenka abduction you'll see the context I used the word in and for this tweet I love and respect you more than ever. Big hugs. Let's all keep talking - dialogue and communication is the key."

Renuka Shahane won our hearts with her strongly-worded opinion and signed off her post on a positive note. "Big hugs. Love you too and you know it," tweeted Renuka Shahane.

Renuka Shahane is best-known for her performances in Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!, Ghutan and 9 Malabar Hill. She was last seen in the 2018 Marathi film Bucket List, co-starring Madhuri Dixit.
