Samajwadi Party’s Abu Azmi made headlines after he blamed the women who were assaulted during the Bengaluru mass molestation incident for inciting the culprits by the ‘western’ behaviour. When Rustom actress Esha Gupta spoke out against Azmi’s comments, the politician’s son went on a degrading rant in which he attacked the actress for showing skin during photoshoots. Esha had written, “The only woman to blame here, n she probably would have blamed herself too, is the woman who unknowingly gave birth to a jerk like u #AbuAzmi.”

Farhan then shared a photoshoot of Esha in which she is in a state of undress and tweeted, “@eshagupta2811 you just look at in the mirror and say what NANGAPAN you gave to our society through films @abufarhanazmi @abuasimazmi.” The hotelier also added a tweet in which he questioned the difference between prostitutes and actresses, both of whom, he said, used their bodies to make a living.

Those who countered that Farhan’s wife Ayesha Takia also was an actress and had taken part in photoshoots that showed her in short dresses, Farhan said that those images had been morphed and he found it amusing. “Those who are morphing Ayesha’s & my mothers pictures to spite me..guys, gals, hire a creative agency. I’m enjoying every bit of it.”
