Seems R. Balki’s upcoming movie Ki and Ka has moved Amitabh Bachchan quite a lot. The 73-year-old actor took his blog to post his feelings on ‘gender differentiation.’ “The better half, the wife, the lady of the house, the house wife .. the one that manages home and children .. the one that stays home to build a nest for the man of the house .. the one whose guidelines and manner are governed by the male .. the one that walks a few steps behind her man ..,” read his post.

“Who’s custom ? when was it made and by whom and for what duration and ethic .. and has it ever been looked upon as due for servicing and change ? Why does physicality have to be the guide line for the metaphor ‘the weaker sex’ ?,” it further read.

The Wazir actor, on Saturday night, went for the special screening of Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor starrer Ki and Ka which moved him to think over who ‘weaker gender’ is. “Strength is not necessarily measured by brawn .. the shift in the ‘w’ to the ‘i’ also produces enough to be in the forefront of reckoning !! Brawn to Brain !,” he wrote.

“Discussion and talk on the subject is short lived .. that’s how it is ‘buddy’ take it or leave it .. and its taken without leave for the ‘weaker gender’!!,” it added.
