Shah Rukh Khan speaks his heart out on women rights and feminism.

Shah Rukh Khan has warned his kids to never disobey women.

Mumbai: Recently, many Hindi movie stars showed their disgust towards the shocking Bengaluru molestation incident. One of the actors who has time and again expressed his support for women rights is none other than Shah Rukh Khan. In his recent interview with Femina India, the actor has spoken about his idea about Feminism.

“If being a feminist means equality, then I’m not one. I believe women should be more than us. If you’re looking at being equal to us, your aim is too low—you’re belittling yourself. From creating life to taking so much shit in your daily life and using it as your strength—the simple act of boarding a local train, being leeched at, not getting a job because of your gender—it’s shocking how much a woman has to take every day,” Shah Rukh Khan says.

When further questioned on how he raised his two sons, Aryan and AbRam, the actor replied, “I tell Aryan and even AbRam never hurt a woman. If you do, I‘ll behead you. And no, times have not changed. A girl is not your chaddi-buddy; show some respect.”

Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in 'Raees' alongside Mahira Khan, which is all set to release on January 25.
