He further added: “Let me tell you, my dear, if push comes to shove and I hope it never does, Shamita can kick your ass, Neha can kick your ass and Divya can kick everybody’s ass”. Raqesh didn’t agree and tried to defend himself by clarifying that: “I do reflect on it and my intention was not that, honestly. I live in a house full of women, I know what it is, what strength is and where it comes from”.

Later, Karan asked Moose and she said that she had told Raqesh that “strength doesn’t come from gender”. However, Shamita was seen defending Raqesh that his intentions were not to demean any woman.

During the episode, Karan also said that he doesn’t want to avoid this remark as it would make him a part of the ‘cancel culture’ which he’s not. He further shared that he finds it offensive even when he is told that he is not man enough. (IANS)
