The #MeToo movement showed the dark side of all the industries where women are oppressed. In Bollywood too, many names came in the headlines, which were accused of assault, harassment and many more. But, actor Mukesh Khanna feels otherwise. Her recent statement angered netizens as she alleged that the #MeToo cases occurred because women wanted to be equal with men.
Known as Shaktimaan and Bheeshma Pitamah of Television, Mukesh Khanna has been a well-known face of the Indian entertainment industry. In a recent interview with FilmyCharcha, he said, “Aurat ki rachna alag hoti hai aur mard ki alag hoti hai. Aurat ka kaam hai ghar sambhalna. Problem kahan shuru huyi #MeToo ki? Jab auraton ne bhi kaam karna shuru kar diya. Aaj aurat aadmi ke sath kandhey se kandha milane ni baat karti hai. Problem yahi se shuru hoti hai. Sabse pehle jo member suffer karta hai woh ghar ka bachcha suffer karta hai jisko maa nahi milti (A woman is different and a man is different. A woman’s job is to take care of the house. The problem of #MeToo began when women moved out of the house and started working. Today she wants to work shoulder to shoulder with men. But more than that the child who travels has to be away from his mother. The child is forced to live with a nanny and sits with him as she is watching serial like ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’. A man is a man and a woman is a woman). “
This did not go down well with netizens who called out his misogynistic mindset. They slammed for his views. After much backlash, on Saturday evening, he took to Twitter to say that he regrets he couldn’t present his view correctly and that he has always respected women. He wrote, “My film journey confirms this. I have always respected women. This is known by every artist or member of every film unit, that I have always respected everyone. If any woman from my statement If I am hurt, I am sorry that I have not been able to put my point correctly. (My film journey confirms that I have always respected the women. . If any woman is hurt by this statement I am sorry that I was not able to put my point correctly). “
