India Today reports Dhulipala sharing her two cents on patriarchy, saying, “It’s almost like Stockholm Syndrome…which is interesting. In India, I feel women are living by patriarchal rules. I have met women who judge other women who are trying to break out of the box. They are not able to take that journey to fight issues, and sometimes it becomes easier to pull down another person.”

She adds, “We hear stories from rooms of ambition, where women have curtailed the growth of another woman. And we have heard of difficult mother-in-laws… I feel like we need better ‘relationship education’ in the country, because I don’t think the rules we have followed are applicable anymore.”

When probed about how she identifies, Sobhita reportedly says, “For a very long time, I didn’t feel particularly female or male. No thoughts, I just was…full stop. I think it is only when I am conversing with a man who I am interested in or attracted to, do I realise I am female. And when I sleep, I sleep as a human being, as a living being. Otherwise, when I am talking to you, I am a person. I feel genderless at times.”
