Neha Dhupia, on March 12, landed into controversy for slamming a participant of Roadies Revolution for slapping his ex-girlfriend for dating five men simultaneously. Soon, social media platforms of the actress were flooded with abuses and cuss words. So much so, her father and daughter were also dragged into the matter unnecessarily. Neha, when the situation went out of control, issued a statement clarifying her intention behind the statement and putting forth a strong stand against violence on women. A month later, Neha, during an interview with an entertainment portal, told that she loves judging Roadies and at times, one ends up putting their opinion forward. She further added that a small chunk of what she said was shown in media and the only thing she wanted to convey is that in no circumstance domestic violence is okay.
"I love every bit of being on the show. It comes with its own reputation but this year the show is called Roadies Revolution where you are trying to make a big difference through it. Sometimes, in the light of doing television which is reality, a lot of things are said because you feel strongly about it and there was one such incident. Unfortunately, a small chunk of what I said was kind of highlighted, whereas what I was trying to imply was the fact that under no circumstances is domestic violence, okay and therefore I think only half of it was picked up and I was trolled extensively for it as I am still being. Honestly, whatever I had to say I took time and put it out in a statement and I still stand by it,” Neha told.

Neha, further in the interview, opened up about the support she got from Bollywood and said her statement was agreed by many. “To be able to be in a position you put what you feel very strongly about with the best intention in mind. I thought the right thing would be to give my stand and my side out. And to have so many people come out in support. Clearly, I come from a place that is in agreement with a lot of people,” Neha added.
Bollywood celebrities like Taapsee Pannu, Dia Mirza and Ayushmann Khurrana came out in support of Neha.
