- 'There is a difference of opinion,' said Ayesha Takia
- 'Take it in my stride that I am expected to harbour an opinion,' she said
- 'Even on something I didn't say,' she added
Ayesha Takia told mid-day, the 31-year-old Dor : "When people are in the public eye, they are questioned for their choice of words. A difference in mind-set and generation gap is the issue. There is a difference of opinion (between me and my father-in-law), which is fine. As a celebrity, I take it in my stride that I am expected to harbour an opinion even on something I didn't say."
"We communicate with each other at home and try to resolve matters. I guess this is something that happens in all homes. We have a lot of love and admiration (for each other)," she added to mid-day, the 31-year-old Dor .
Abu Azmi's comments often provoke outrage and in 2014, Ayesha Takia and Farhan Azmi publicly distanced themselves from his suggestion that women having sex should be hanged to death. Abu Azmi was quoted by mid-day as saying, "Any woman if, whether married or unmarried, goes along with a man, with or without her consent, should be hanged. Both should be hanged. It shouldn't be allowed even if a woman goes by consent." Ayesha tweeted these disclaimers soonest:
