Shaktimaan actor Mukesh Khanna is known for making controversial statements and he was been in the limelight lately for calling The Kapil Sharma Show vulgar and accusing TV producer Ekta Kapoor of ruining Indian culture. However, the actor grabbed headlines for the worst after making yet another controversial and misogynistic statement related to the #MeToo movement.
In a recent interview with The Filmy Charcha, Mukesh Khanna bluntly accused women of creating ‘MeToo issues’. He said that it all began when women ‘left their kitchen and stepped out to work’. “Aurat ki rachna alag hoti hai and mard ki alag hoti hai.

Aaj aurat mard ke saath kandhey se kandha milani ke baat karti hai,” he said.
