Euphoria lead singer-actor Palash Sen stirred controversy with his 'sexist' remark at a college festival in Mumbai. The singer allegedly made some misogynist remarks for the sake of laughter.
The singer started the "barrage of sexist comments" by asking the students: "Are there good-looking girls in IIT-B?"
Further then, in an attempt to sound 'witty' the singer allegedly said: "You (students) will find the best looking women when you leave this campus. Aur woh tumhaare liye roti belenge.'
One of the college student who was present at the event heavily criticised the doctor-turned-singer's comments in her blog. She wrote: "Of course, it was just a jest when Euphoria singer Palash Sen commemorated his 15 years of musical euphoria by humiliating women both studying in IIT and outside."
The singer did not stop at this and went on to say: "Women are for beauty, men are for intelligence. You have to agree that men are more intelligent than women, don't you?"
The student informed: "...When in anger I spoke to some of the Mood Indigo team members, I was told that it was all done in good humor."
She further wrote: "What we then got as consolation was this – 'Women are the most beautiful creation by God'."
Palash Sen has probably crossed the line here as some of his fans are upset with the singer's comments. While some like the event organisers believe that Palash Sen's 'sexist' comments are indeed in good humour.
