Bollywood singer Sona Mohapatra has launched an attack on television actor Mukesh Khanna for his sexist comments on women. Sona Mohapatra, who is very vocal about her opinions and is often seen taking a stand against the wrong, addressed the recent statements of Mukesh Khanna and said that people such as him are best ignored.
Well, for the unversed, recently in an interview with The Filmy Charcha, Mukesh Khanna, who is famous for his role of Shaktimaan, had said that the ‘#MeToo’ cases happen because women have started working. Not just this, he also claimed that the only duty of women is to take care of the household.
“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).”
He added, “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 Thi 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.).”
Well, the comments obviously didn’t go down well with the netizens, who are slamming the ‘Shaktimaan’ actor left, right, and center for his remark.
Among many, Sona Mohapatra, after she noticed the news, couldn’t stop herself from replying to the nasty comment made by Mukesh Khanna. In her reply, Sona blamed the ‘tacky mandbbudhi’ of people like Mukesh Khanna and stated that people like him should be ignored. She wrote:
“yea, cus men never ever molested or assaulted women & children inside homes according to this fellow who is best ignored. Tacky mandhbudhi.The sad truth is there are enough & more such regressive mindsets around us everywhere? We soldier on. Change is slow but is coming.”
