In episode 48 of Hauterrfly’s The Male Feminist, Gauahar Khan said that men can be better allies by becoming better humans. She went on to add that, that’s all they need to live a happy life. “Aap mard ho ya aurat ho, aap sirf ek insaan ban ke rahiye aur zindagi bohot hi kush rahegi because aap baki chezon mein complicate nahi honge aur apne aap ko koi toop nahi samjhenge. Easy rahenge toh life mein kush hi rahenge (Men or women, just become a human and your life will be happy because you won’t have any complications. You won’t think of yourself as someone big and it’ll make life easier and happier for you),” said the actress.

When Siddhaarth Aalambayan pointed out how society promotes toxic masculinity by saying “mard ban” to men, the Bigg Boss 7 winner questioned why no one says “aurat ban”. Gauahar Khan further said, “Tum shirt khologe and muscles nikal jayenge? Tum laal chaddi mein udne lag jaoge? Kya hoga? Kuch nahi hoga!”

NGL but we think men need to understand how toxic masculinity and “mard ban” is not going to make them a man but just being a better person might.
