"I think it is not just Turkey or India. All across the world, historically, for many years now, half of the population has always had a secondary position," he said.

"Whether it is a girl or boy, or a man or a woman, there should be complete equality and equal opportunities should be available to everyone," said the 'Dangal' star.
"We all have the same feelings whether I am a man or woman. I hope that this film takes a step in the right direction," the PK star added.
