‘Men and women are different. The MeToo problem began when women started going to work'
Mukesh Khanna found the root cause behind ‘the MeToo problem.’ The Shaktimaan actor turned right-winger thought it was crucial to share his astonishing discoveries with the world. So, he went on record and said this.
“Men and women are made differently. A woman’s job is to look after the house, forgive me for saying this at times. The MeToo problem began when women started going to work. Today, women talk about being equal to men. People talk about women’s liberation, but all that’s the core of all the issues. The first family member to suffer is the child who does not get the attention of his mother. They would be watching a saas-bahu TV serial with their nanny.”
A video of the actor’s insanely sexist remarks is currently making the rounds on the internet. As you can tell, Khanna’s comments sparked quite an outrage on Twitter as netizens tore him to shreds for his blatantly misogynistic remarks. Suffice to say, the actor had better keep his bigoted and regressive ideas to himself.
But it would be naïve to think that the former star did not see the outrage coming. An user wrote, “Mukesh Khanna is the cautionary tale of how living in the past glory can be dangerous. His attention-seeking words reek of desperation. He wants to get validated by more misogynistic men & be hailed as a hero that he never was. Media needs to stop normalising such sexist men.”
Shaktimaan, an Indian Hindi-language superhero television show, was on the air from 1997-2005.
