Actor Mukesh Khanna, famous for his superhero character Shaktimaan and playing the role of Bhishma Pitamah in Mahabharat, is being slammed by social media users for a controversial and misogynistic statement about girls. The chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women, Swati Maliwal, has now filed a notice for the Delhi cyber cell seeking registration of an FIR against Mukesh for his sexist comments.
Mukesh Khanna runs a YouTube channel called Bheeshm International. Earlier this week, he posted a video titled “Kya aapko bhi aisi ladkiya lubhati hain?” (Do such girls lure you as well). In the clip, he stated, “Koi bhi ladki agar kisi ladke ko kahe ‘I want to have sex with you', wo ladki, ladki nahi hai, wo dhanda kar rahi hai (girls who desire sex and ask for it are sex workers)"
"Kyunki is tarah ki nirlaj baatein koi sabhya samaj ki ladki kabhi nahi karegi (Because a decent girl belonging to civilised society would never say such things)," he added.
The video put Mukesh in trouble for his absolutely misogynistic statements against girls. The actor has been facing extreme backlash for his derogatory comments.
