Veteran actor Mukesh Khanna on Wednesday found himself at the centre of a row for his remarks comparing women who ask for s*x to "s*x workers". Best known for playing Bhishma Pitamah in BR Chopra's "Mahabharat" and superhero "Shaktimaan", Khanna said a girl belonging to a "civilised society" would never initiate a sexual conversation.

"If a girl asks a boy to have s*x, she is not a girl, she is a s*x worker. Because a decent girl belonging to civilised society would never say such things," the 64-year-old actor said in a video posted on his YouTube channel called Bheeshm International recently.

Khanna also received flak on social media. "If any actor says such bullshit, he's asking for limelight Mukesh Khanna," a user wrote. Another user said, "Amazing logic. I understand though, that no girl might have said this to him. So it's great for him to remain in this delusion for life." "Sorry Shaktimaan, this time you're the one in the wrong here," another tweet read.

Following the criticism, Khanna said he was not making comments on the general man-woman relationship and his purpose was to make the youth aware of the s*x racket. "I also get messages from girls, where they say they want to chat with me and they ask for n*de 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.

In the video titled 'Kya Aapko Bhi Aisi Ladkiya Lubhati Hain?', Khanna was talking about internet s*x rackets where men are blackmailed. The two-day-old clip went viral on the internet on Wednesday morning.

After being criticised for his derogatory remarks, Khanna, as quoted by PTI, said, "People have trolled me in the past also by watching only a small or certain part of the video. People should see this entire video first. My only purpose was to make the youth aware about the s*x racket. I am not talking about the general relationship between a man and a woman. I respect woman."

Meanwhile, the Delhi Commission For Women (DCW) issued a notice to the Delhi Police cyber cell seeking the registration of an FIR against Khanna for his alleged "derogatory and misogynist comments against women".
