While interacting with media, Chatterjee said that there is a need to tell the next generation what to wear for their own good. She further stated that she gave her opinion to the girl as a mother, and an Indian woman.

“You need to understand what to wear. You can’t wear jeans to the temple because it is uncomfortable. Wear salwar kameez or saree. This is our legacy,” Chatterjee said.

Chatterjee contested 2004 Lok Sabha seat on Congress ticket and lost.
