Indian minister says his state's roads should be as smooth as Katrina Kaif's cheeks

It isn't news when politicians draw analogies of physical features of women. The culture is rather prevalent in desi societies where time and again several ministers have compared trucks, trollies and now roads to women.

Remember? Years ago, former Bihar chief minister Lalu Prasad's jibe about making the roads of Bihar as smooth as the cheeks of Hema Malini. Now, the newly made state minister of Rajasthan Rajendra Gudha has made a similar jibe of which a video is going viral where he is seen telling an officer that roads in his villages should be as smooth as that of Bollywood superstar Katrina Kaif's cheeks.

While airing their grievances to Rajendra Gudha, some villagers demand that the roads in the area be repaired. At this, the minister turns to the chief engineer of the Public Works Department present at the meeting, and says in jest, “In my constituency, the roads should be developed similar to that of Katrina Kaif’s cheeks.”

This earns laud and applause from the crowd, at which Gudha repeats the remark, to more approbation from his constituents.


Initially, the minister told the chief engineer officer the roads should be constructed as smooth as Hema Malini's cheeks. Then he himself realised that Hema Malini has become old now. Then he asked the public which actress is making waves these days and then came the name of Katrina Kaif.

Now, a newly appointed Indian politician has come under fire for comparing Bollywood actor Katrina Kaif's cheeks to his state's roads. Gudha has been called out after his remarks about the same had gone viral.

Gudha, who joined Congress from BSP, has been made minister of state in a cabinet expansion held on Sunday.

Madhya Pradesh law minister PC Sharma brought back the analogy in 2019 when he said the state's pothole-ridden roads would soon be made “pretty” like the ‘Dream Girl’ star’s cheeks.
