On the 69th Human Rights Day, Hrithik Roshan took to Twitter to mark what and who the fight for humanity really stands for. Hrithik, who has had quite a year, took to Twitter on December 10 to say what his definition of human rights and gender equality is.
The 43-year-old actor says feminism is not just about the female gender, but is also inclusive of men, as it stands for equality. "Its about recognition of an individuals worth regardless of gender. based on merit. In that sense feminism is a fight for Humanity," tweeted Hrithik.
The actor, who is set to play mathematician Anand Kumar in the biopic Super 30, also noted that feminism is not a term that should scare people. Though Hrithik's tweet is a timely one in the light of recent events, all around the world, and especially in the showbiz industry (Weinstein, Spacey and so on...), we can't help but think back on his spat with Kangana Ranaut, which stormed Bollywood not so long ago.
Feminism is inclusive.It includes men by way of not demanding but commanding equality.Its about recognition of an individuals worth regardless of gender. based on merit. In that sense feminism is a fight for Humanity. & so not a word to scare from #humanrightsday#GenderEquality— Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) December 10, 2017
While the industry has been divided on the issue, Hrithik has maintained that one must not choose to side with a woman — simply because she is one, and justice must prevail.
