Actor Mukesh Khanna is being slammed by netizens for saying that the MeToo movement began after women started stepping out for work.
The social movement against sexual abuse and sexual harassment gained prominence in India in 2018 when actress Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of sexual harassment. Since then, several women in the Hindi film industry have named and shamed alleged perpetrators.
Talking about the movement in a video, which has gone viral on Twitter, Mukesh says, “Aurat ka kaam hai ghar sambhalna (The job of a woman is to take care of the house). Problem kahaan se shuru hue hai #MeToo ki jab auraton ne bhi kaam karna shuru kar diya. Aaj aurat mard ke saath kandhey se kandha milane ke baat karti hai. The comment has left many netizens furious.
