In a video which she posted on Instagram, she talked about Teej, a festival that is mostly celebrated in northern part of India. She was of the view that it was misogynistic festival as the wives needs to fast for the long lives of their husbands. She also took a Teej Handbook and read some lines from it which stated that women who don’t believe in or follow this festival will suffer from misfortunes and poverty. In the ending portion of the video she shared that the Teej notebook that she has bought was not handy for her and she’d rather use it as tissue or toilet paper.
