Russell Peters draw flak over Aish comment


Stand up comedian Russel Peter making a comment on Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her acting abilities hasn’t gone down well with everybody it seems. At an event promoting his film ‘Speedy Singhs’ he joked about how Aish cant act, still went on to become a superstar on her pretty face alone.

"She hasn't become a better actor. She is still good looking, isn't that good enough? Good job Abhishek, you finally knocked her up!" were his exact words.

Of course the actress was not impressed by his comments. Now, the protests are gaining momentum with some women’s groups also joining in.

"He (Russell) has no right to talk badly about our actors. His comment on Aishwarya is indeed in bad taste and will not be forgotten." said Shalini Thackarey, president of the MNS cine-workers union.

Nari Samman Sangathan spokesperson Sundari Thakur asked the comedian to stay within his limits while making comments on women. "Aishwarya is a woman first and an actress later. I think Russell has no respect for women and shouldn't be entertained."

Letters demanding Peter’s apology have also gone to actor Akshay Kumar, who is the producer of ‘Speedy Singhs’, adding to his voes after the poor showing of the film at box office.

Film’s co-producer Ajay Virmani whose son Vinay makes his debut in speedy Singh was deeply upset by the developments and has issued an apology to the actress. "I have no control over what Russell says. What he says is not reflective of our opinion or what the film is all about. Aishwarya is a fantastic actress and a legend. I apologize for his comments."

Russell who already left for Canada hasn’t responded on the issue so far.
