In a rather misogynistic statement, Shaktimaan-starrer Mukesh Khanna has said that the #MeToo movement was caused because women “started stepping out of their homes to work”. A video of the actor’s statement has been widely circulated on social media.

“Men and women are different. Women are supposed to take care of the household. The problem of #MeToo started when women started working,” the actor said. Khanna’s views invoked many reactions on social media.
