However, Mukherjee has now come in the limelight for making a stand for Indian sarees and critising women who can’t drape them. This happened when he addressed the Harvard India Conference, which was attended by particularly younger generation. He said:

“I think, if you tell me that you do not know how to wear a saree, I would say shame on you. It’s a part of your culture, you need to buck up and stand up for it.”

You can watch his following comments from the video below:

 

He also said that “the saree is admired across the globe, and that Indian women are identified with it.” But seems like Mukherjee’s opinions didn’t go down well with the Indian women, who need a chance to attack men in any circumstance.
