Twitter erupts over comment of Mukesh Khanna as he blames women for #MeToo crimes
Mukesh blamed women and said that the whole #MeToo issue began after women started leaving their kitchens and started working outside homes.
Mahabharata actor Mukesh Khanna does not refrain himself from making controversial statements. The actor has been making headlines for his controversial stances. He has been previously under the radar for calling The Kapil Sharma Show as ‘vulgar’.
Not just this, he also lashed out at TV mogul and producer Ekta Kapoor for ruining Mahabharata through her 2008 daily show Kahaani Hamaaray Mahaabhaarat Ki.
Mukesh, who is best known for playing Shaktimaan and Bhishma Pitamah in BR Chopra's Mahabharat, has made yet another controversial and misogynistic statement about the #MeToo movement.
In a recent interview with The Filmy Charcha, Mukesh blamed women and said that the whole #MeToo issue began after women started leaving their kitchens and started working outside homes.
He said, “Aurat ki rachna alag hoti hai and mard ki alag hoti hai. Aurat ka kaam hai ghar sambhalna, jo maaf karna mein kabhi kabhi bol bhi jata hu. Problem kaha se shuru hue hai #MeToo ki jabh aurato ne bhi kaam karna shuru kar liya. Aaj aurat mard ke saath kandhey se kandha milani ke baat karti hai.”
Well, the statement didn’t go down well with the netizens.
