Mukesh Khanna lambasted for saying, ‘Aurat ka kaam hai ghar sambhalna. #MeToo problem began jab auraton ne bhi kaam karna shuru kar diya’

Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna has blamed women for #MeToo as he feels the problem started when females stepped out of the homes to work. In a conversation with Filmy Charcha, the Shaktimaan star 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.”

Soon after his comments, we saw netizens bashing Mukesh Khanna on Twitter. While one user wrote, “This man is SICK. In short, if women will step out for work, men are entitled to assault them? If women want safety, they should stay at home. Shame on You, Mukesh Khanna.” A female tweeted, “I am as intelligent, capable, deserving of (equal) human rights as my husband and I am not going ‘back to the kitchen’. #sorryshaktiman #mukeshkhanna #metoo.”

Mukesh Khanna is known for his portrayals in serials like Shaktimaan and Mahabharat.
