Actor Mukesh Khanna, who is best known for playing Shaktiman on small screen, has been making headlines but for all wrong reasons. The senior actor has angered fans and netizens for his controversial statements on MeToo movement.
Any person with an ounce of sensibility will say – harassment, which is unfortunate and should stop. Right? No.
According to Mukesh, women are best suited for household work, and the #MeToo movement started because they started working shoulder to shoulder with men.
In an un-dated interview, he can be heard saying,
“Aaj aurat mard ke saath kandhe se kandha mila ke chalne ki baat karti hain…problem yahin se shuru hoti hai. Sabse pehle jo member suffer karta hai woh hai ghar ka bachcha. Jisko ma nahin milti. Aaya ke saath baith kar Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi dekh raha hota hai.”
He further added,
“(Women say) main bhi wohi karungi jo mard karta hai. Nahin, mard mard hai, aurat aurat hai.”
The misogynistic statement made by the actor was a disappointment to people who looked up to him as kids. See how people reacted:
