The actor made some shocking but sensible points in a recent interview...
Arjun Kapoor is one of the most outspoken actors of recent times as he is never afraid to speak his mind. Be it award shows, TV programmes, movie or interviews, he is one guy who will always say what he wants without mincing words. Even if you throw difficult and strange questions at him, he will give you a fitting reply. His upcoming film - Ki & Ka also deals with a misconception and taboo in our society. In our present day scenario, many people think that only women should be home-makers while the men of the family should be the earning members. However with Ki & Ka, Arjun Kapoor plans to change this mentality. In a recent interview with a leading daily, he blasted all these misconceptions and old practices and made some shocking but sensible points, making him the man of every girl's dreams. Here are the 5 statements that Arjun Kapoor made in an interview, making him the PERFECT husband:
# When asked if he feels angry about preconceived notions about men, such as men think about sex all the time, Arjun replied, "But that is true, men do think about sex all the time (laughs). It is a natural thing, so it doesn't irk me. In fact, the thing that upsets me is that it is considered women don't or shouldn't think about sex. It's a natural need, desire and want.Women are entitled to have the same feeling. When a man is a flirt or a Casanova, people say mard hai. If a woman does that, she is shamed. Everyone is allowed to explore their lives the way they want."
# When he was asked about the restrictions imposed on women, Arjun mentioned, "Men are allowed to do a lot more than women in our country. What annoys me is when I hear things like Beti tumne graduation karli ab shaadi karlo. You are not a boy to step outside and take up a job. Your husband will take a call on this'. Who is he to decide? Does he know what her talent or capabilities are? If it's an arranged marriage, he probably wouldn't know at all. Maybe she has a strong business acumen and would flourish in a corporate job. Women should be allowed to plan their own lives."
# When he was asked if he would be fine if his wife or girlfriend earns more than him, then he revealed, "It won't be an issue, but if I wasn't doing well in my career, then my reaction would probably be different. If I failed as an actor and didn't have anything going for me, then I guess it would be difficult. But if you are sure about yourself, you'll never feel insecure about your partner. Accha hi hai, mujhpe kam stress hoga (laughs)."
# When he was asked if he envies anything about women, he said, "I think women are superior, so every man should envy them. Women have the ability to understand men better. They are patient, loving, caring, nurturing and can endure pain. I wonder if men would be able to give birth."
# Talking about the taboos of our society, he mentioned, "A man can be a homemaker and still be a man. Men are forced to do corporate jobs even if their heart is not into it.People will tell them, Tum ladki thodi ho ke ghar pe baithoge. If you work out of home, it's looked down upon.That is the main connect I had with Ki & Ka. I am not saying we will bring in a change or a revolution, but society has preconceived notions and the film will bring that to the fore in a light-hearted way."
