ControversyCalled Indian women ‘lazy’
In March 2023, netizens criticised her over her 'Indian women are lazy' comment. In a video that went viral on the internet, Sonali said, “In India, we, at times, forget that a lot of women are just lazy. They want a boyfriend/husband, who earns well, owns a house, and his performance at work guarantees regular increments. But, in the middle of this, women forget to make a stand for themselves. Women don't know what will they do. I urge everyone to encourage women and make them self-dependent. So that they are capable enough to share the household expenses with their partners." Later, she shared a post on social media and apologised over her comment. [1]Hindustan Times
