Mumbai: Actor Mukesh Khanna, who is known for playing iconic roles like Shaktimaan and Bhishma Pitamah in Mahabharata, recently made a comment that #MeeToo movement began because women started working.

A video from Khanna’s recent interview with Filmy Charcha went viral on social media platforms. He says, “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),” as quoted by Hindustan Times.

In the video, the actor added, “The problem of #MeToo began when women started working.”

He further said, “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),” he continued.

Khanna also acknowledged that he understood that in the ‘modern world’, this might not be an acceptable thing to say.

The netizens over the social media began to criticise the actor for his comments. A Twitter user wrote, “As soon as people (like him) get a platform to speak, they start sh**ting from their mouth,” another wrote, “What a disappointment.

Another user wrote, “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.”
