The Shaktimaan actor has landed himself into trouble, after his controversial comment about the #MeToo movement. He spoke about the movement and blamed women for it. He also said that this began because women started thinking of themselves as equal to men.
In an interview with The Filmy Charcha, the actor 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 nein bhi kaam karna shuru kar liya. Aj aurat mard ke saath kandhey se kandha milani ke baat karti hai,” said Khanna in Hindi.
