Today being the International Women's Day, what we usually hear about is respecting women, caring about them blah blah. But none told us in what way you will show your love, support and understanding for the woman you admire or love. But, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor celebrate the Women's day by pointing rather challenging the gender stereotypes that usually runs in the society. In a bid to promote their upcoming film KI AND KA, the makers released a very special video on Women's Day featuring Kareena and Arjun. In the video, the duo address and takes a dig at the common notions that lays in our defined system through such five such examples. Let's take a look at these interesting pre-defined norms gender wise. P = Pulling (male), S = Streeling (female).


P: When a man says ‘I am househusband'
Common Notion: What a lallu living off his wife
S: When a woman says ‘I am a housewife'
Common Notion: Aww! so sweet, she is so homely (Kitni Gharelu hai)

P: When a man says, ‘I have to leave office early today my kid is not well'
Common Notion: See what an involved dad yaar so nice
S: When a woman says ‘I have to leave office early'
Common Notion: That's why no hiring woman in organization. It's a big problem. A big jhanjhant. It will not work.

S: When a wife says, ‘I fix breakfast for my husband'
Common Notion: Tumahara Farz Banta Hai Yehi Toh Hai Aur Kaun Karega (It's her responsibility. Who other than the wife will do it?)
P: When a husband says, ‘I fix breakfast for my wife'
Common Notion: Wife has got him under her thumb. Joru Ka Ghulam!

P: When a man says, ‘I let my wife pick up the bills'
Common Notion: He is a man or a pyjama
S: My husband picks up the bills
Common Notion: Of course uska toh farz banta hai (it's his responsibilty)

P:When a man says, ‘I want to focus on my career'
Common Notion: So ambitious-driven
S: When a woman says, ‘I want to focus on my career'
Common Notion: Calculating, heartless

Directed by R. Balki KI AND KA hits the screens on April 1, 2016
