    A fairly simple being, I have big dreams and a bigger imagination. I have a singular wish that is to see the world and every action I take is towards making that wish come true.

    Mukesh Khanna stirs up controversy with his sexist and disparaging remarks on women. With an attitude and a mindset that belongs in Middles Ages, his statements are sure to make you scream with anger.

    A video of his comments are being shared on social media platforms where Khanna states that MeToo would not have happened had women just stayed at home.

    Here is exactly what he said:

    “Aurat ka kaam hai ghar sambhalna, jo maaf karna mein kabhi kabhi bol bhi jata hu (The job of a woman is to take care of the house). Problem kaha se shuru hui hai #MeToo ki jab aurato ne bhi kaam karna shuru kar diya (The problem of #MeToo began when women started working). Aaj aurat mard ke saath kandhe se kandha milane ki baat karti hai (Today, women talk about walking shoulder-to-shoulder with men).”

    Not over with his tirade he went on, “Log women’s lib ki baat karenge, lekin main aapko bata doon, problem yahin se shuru hoti hai (People talk about women’s liberation, but let me tell you that where the problem begins). Sabse pehla jo member suffer karta hai woh ghar ka bachcha suffer karta hai, jisko maa nahi milti (The first person who suffers is the child, because he doesn’t have a mother taking care of him at home). Aaya ke saath baith kar Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu dekh raha hota hai.

    (He sits and watches TV with his nanny all day). Jab se shuruat hui, tab se yeh bhi shuruat hui ke main bhi wohi karungi jo mard karta hai. Nahi, mard mard hai aurat aurat hai (It all began when women started saying that they want to do what men do. No, a man is a man and a woman is a woman).” 

    Mukesh Khanna does realise though that in this apparent modern world his views might not be acceptable.

    This was his interview given to Filmy Charcha.

    Twitter Reactions

    Obviously his comments did not go down well with the audience. He was widely criticised on Twitter. “As soon as people (like him) get a platform to speak, they start sh**ting from their mouth,” one person wrote. “What a disappointment,” wrote another. “He thinks #MeToo began because women thought to be equal with men. What a sick mindset he has. I’m sorry for women in his family to have to deal with such person,” a third person wrote.

    This is not the first time that the actor has found himself in hot water. Mukesh Khanna recently was in a controversy over his appearance on the Kapil Sharma Show.

    “This show is full of fuhadpana, full of double meaning words, taking a turn towards vulgarity with every moment. In which the men wear women’s clothes, do cheap things and people laugh, holding their stomachs,” he had said on social media and refused to give an appearance.
