Priyanka's dad an idiot: Taslima Nasreen

entertainment Updated: Nov 06, 2011 13:31 IST

Controversial author Taslima Nasreen has reacted strongly to 'Priyanka is like a son to me' comment by the actor's father.

In an interview Priyanka Chopra's father had heaped praises on his daughter saying, “For me, Priyanka is like a son. I remember, even as a child she was focused and determined. She wanted to excel in everything she did, and once she had put her mind into something, she would work rigorously hard to achieve it.”

Calling him an idiot, the proclaimed feminist tweeted, "Priyanka Chopra's father said, 'Priyanka is like a son to me'. What an uncouth idiot man! Daughter hatred not yet gone. I am waiting for the day when fathers would feel proud of their sons and say 'my son is like a daughter to me'."

She goes on to tweet, "We've begun to raise daughters more like sons..but few have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters."

Wonder what 'daughter' Priyanka Chopra has to say on the issue.
