She took to Twitter to express her disappointment in reaction to a viral video which shows Raut criticising Kangana for “disrespecting Maharashtra and Shivaji Maharaj”. Dia tweeted, “Strongly condemn the word ‘haramkhor’ used by @rautsanjay61 . Sir you have every right to express your displeasure for what Kangana has said but you must apologise for using such language.”


Talking about the trend of abusing women on social media and otherwise, Dia further wrote in another tweet, “The last few months have seen an unprecedented rise in name calling and personal abuse. It is something that undermines every effort made to build a safe/equal society for women. Unfortunately many women are also perpetuating this culture. This must stop. Let’s stand together!”
