Mukesh Khanna equates 'girls asking for sex' to prostitutes, DCW seeks FIR against him

In a video posted on his YouTube channel called 'Bheeshm International', Mukesh Khanna said that a girl belonging to a 'civilised society' would never initiate sexual conversation. 

 

The Delhi Commission For Women (DCW) issued a notice to Delhi Police cyber cell seeking registration of an FIR against veteran actor Mukhesh Khanna for his alleged 'derogatory and misogynist comments against women.'

Mukesh Khanna, best known for portraying the superhero character Shaktimaan, is being slammed by social media users for his remarks comparing women who ask for sex to 'sex workers'. In a video posted on his YouTube channel called 'Bheeshm International', he said that a girl belonging to a 'civilised society' would never initiate sexual conversation.

'If a girl asks a boy to have sex, she is not a girl, she is a sex worker. Because a decent girl belonging to a civilised society would never say such things,' the actor said.

After facing backlash, Mukesh told news agency PTI that he was not making comments on general man-woman relationship and his purpose was to make the 'youth aware about sex racket'. He further stated that people should see the entire video first.

In the video titled 'Kya Aapko Bhi Aisi Ladkiya Lubhati Hain?', he was talking about internet sex rackets where men are blackmailed.

'I also get messages from girls, where they say they want to chat with me and they ask for nude photos. We don't know whether it is actually a woman or a man. I also get messages, I do not reply to them. Some people who I know too have received messages from girls, who have their own channels,' he said.

The two-day-old clip went viral on internet on Wednesday morning.
