This interaction comes in light of the Hathras rape case that has sparked protests in different parts of the country. Many celebrities like Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma have condemned the Hathras rape case.

On Friday, Sharma took to Instagram to write about how society views having a girl child with "an extremely myopic vision."
