Shashi Tharoor replies to Kangana Ranaut on Kamal Haasan’s idea to pay homemakers: I’d like all Indian women to be as empowered as you | Hindi Movie News

On Tuesday Shashi Tharoor took to his Twitter handle to respond to Kangana Ranaut’s reaction after she opposed the idea of recognizing housework done by homemakers as a salaried profession as endorsed by actor-turned-politician, Kamal Haasan. Replying to Kangana’s tweet, he wrote, “I agree w/ @KanganaTeam that there are so many things in a homemaker’s life that are beyond price.”

“But this is not about those things: it’s about recognising the value of unpaid work & also ensuring a basic income to every woman. I’d like all Indian women to be as empowered as you” he further added.

Tharoor had initially tweeted, “I welcome @ikamalhaasan’s idea of recognising housework as a salaried profession, w/the state govt paying a monthly wage to homemakers. This will recognise & monetise the services of women homemakers in society, enhance their power& autonomy & create near-universal basic income.”

Soon after this, the ‘Queen’ actress opposed the idea on Twitter and shared, “Don’t put a price tag on sex we have with our love, don’t pay us for mothering our own, we don’t need salary for being the Queens of our own little kingdom our home, stop seeing everything as business. Surrender to your woman she needs all of you not just your love/respect/salary.”

“Lot of people are jealous of my ability to debate on almost any topic how I peel psychological layers of my opponents and penetrate like X ray in to any subject. Don’t be jealous or angry try and sharpen your intellect and really truly invest yourself in your surroundings” she added later.
