Stand-up comedian Aditi Mittal has called out the sexism of her colleagues. 

Midst allegations of sexist and bullying behaviour of High Spirits Pune owner Khodu Irani, stand-up comic Aditi Mittal has called out the deeply biased and hypocritical behaviour of her colleagues.

Aditi supported blogger Sheena Dabolkar’s allegations that Irani and his popular establishment respected neither women performers or patrons and routinely harassed them sexually. Responding to several male comics’ boycotting the hip joint after the allegations, Aditi said that the stand-up comic fraternity is deeply sexist and just pretends to be feminists on stage.
