After Akshay’s tweet there were many people who raised many questions related to this meeting and from that one of the social media users pointed out that the organisers of the meet need to be questioned for selecting an all-male group. On that Dia Mirza said, “True. Wish one of the men had asked this question. How can an entire Industry be represented only by men?” Another person said why there is a need to compare women with men at all places, the actor shot them down saying the debate is “not about competition”.
“… It’s such a fundamental thing. If we hope to achieve equality we must be included in all conversations! Of course women are doing well. We are doing well despite the fact that we are excluded. And doesn’t that need to change?” she wrote.
