Renuka Shahane has been known for being extremely vocal on social media, be it calling out her peers or raising her voice against any troll, the Hum Aapke Hain Koun fame is a force to reckon with. Recently, she had a war of words with former actress and ex-wife of film-maker Shekhar Kapur, Suchitra Krishnamoorthy whom she schooled on Twitter for using the words 'whores' and 'criminals' in one sentence thereby degrading the sex workers indirectly. 

Suchitra Krishnamoorthi in a tweet wrote, "Amma always said " Money is not everything.Even criminals and whores have money. What matters is not money but character and integrity." I  truly truly understand her words only today. Jeez ive never felt more proud of my middle class roots." Reacting sharply to it, Renuka wrote, "No disrespect to your Amma @suchitrak but as women let's try & correct the injustice that our traditions have imposed on whores. We castigated whores while letting off their customers who are leading "respectful" lives! Let's not put whores & criminals in one bracket at least 1/4."

She also added, "Whores sell what is theirs. Criminals take what is others. Whores are often pushed into their profession due to human trafficking at ages as young as 7. Does any child have the right to say "no" at that age? Whores are pushed into prostitution by people they trust explicitly. Whores are abused, raped, tortured, drugged, given hormonal injections at a very early age & then raped relentlessly throughout their professional lives. Most of what should be their earnings is taken away by pimps & middlemen or middle women!" Suchitra too acknowledged Renuka's response and wrote, "Yup good point @renukash Agree with u totally. But if uve been following my tweets on #pramodgoenka abduction u'll see the context i use the word in".

Well, the duo finally ended up the conversation amicably and that is what healthy conversation is all about!

Suchitra is correct. Renuka is overdoing it. Suchitra used the ‘w’ word and it does not refer to prostitutes. ‘w’ are women who decide to get wealthy by whoring, nothing to do with many prostitutes who might be in that profession because of circumstances that they could not control. PV please post.

Renuka is absolutely right. Beauty with brains.
