Actor Mukesh Khanna, best known for his work in Shaktimaan and Mahabharat, has recently commented on the #MeToo movement. The actor said that the movement began because the women considered themselves as equal to men.
Khanna further added that it is the duty of the women to take care of the household. His comments were widely criticised on social media.
The clip is now going viral on Twitter and netizens are blasting Mukesh for his misogynistic comment.
Recently, the actor found himself at the centre of a controversy when he slammed The Kapil Sharma Show, and said that he refused to appear on it with the cast of Mahabharat. “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.
Kapil, in response, had said, “My team and I are working hard to make people smile during this crucial stage of the pandemic. When the whole world is going through a tough time, it is important to bring a smile on people’s faces.”
