Not only is he a doting father in his films like Nil Battey Sannata, Bareilly Ki Barfi, and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, Pankaj Tripathi is a doting father in real life too. The actor often talks about his equation with his wife and daughter, and has expressed how the two ladies are the building blocks of his life. Tripathi, who has always shared constructive thoughts with his fans, in a recent interview, suggested that young boys should be educated about feminism in school. Elaborating on the same, he added that the disparity between the two genders needs to be eradicated for a better future.
While talking to a daily, Tripathi expressed, “I feel that parents put all their energies into grooming and teaching their daughters how to behave themselves but when it comes to boys, it’s not given the same importance as it needs. In today’s education, I think the inclusion of feminism is a must for all young boys. If this is done, we won’t have to “save” our daughters anymore.” He talked about how his wife and daughter have impacted his life in the best way possible and revealed that initially, he used to survive on his wife’s salary, and how she supported him at every step of his life.
He went on to talk about the need for feminism lessons and added, “Feminism, which talks of equal rights and opportunities for men and women, is a study that should be instilled in boys just as strongly as girls, who are often taught to behave themselves in society.” He talked about how boys need to learn right from the beginning that no gender is ever superior or inferior.
“Respecting the other genders as well as empowering each other should be taught early on, not just to girls but to young boys as well. To see the existence of such a large gender disparity in our country needs immediate attention and change,” added the actor.
