They often say that ‘men are stronger sex compared to that of women. However, actress Khushboo says that not all men necessarily be stronger, yet our society insists them to be so which often bring tremendous pressure on their existence.
She was speaking during a television show in which experts discussed opinions on Bollywood’s Sushant Singh Rajput’s tragic death. Earlier she has expressed her views through her Twitter handle:
“All human beings go through severe ups and downs. The best of stars have had some really rocky times. But men in our industry have built such larger than life images that sometimes even their friends aren’t able to gauge their low moments.
Often, we think ‘oh he’s just fine’ or ‘he’s got it all’, we don’t understand depression and the signals. It has to come from home.
When we raise men let’s not celebrate them as the stronger sex needing to protect the women. Women are really tough and somehow historically, biologically and even culturally we have faced a lot more.
So this whole concept of ‘weaker sex’ and the stronger one not exhibiting emotions has to go. Women have learnt to deal with marriage, childbirth, financial upheavals and breakups in a more holistic way, giving way to their emotions too.”
Popular south Indian actress Khushboo is considered to be one among the powerful actresses in the industry who has often invited stringent criticisms for her bold attitudes on life and society.
