05 Jan 2021: Kangana Ranaut opposes Kamal Haasan's idea of paying homemakers
Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has voiced her disagreement over actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan's idea of recognizing housework done by homemakers as a salaried profession, which was recently appreciated by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor.
Led by Haasan, Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) has started campaigning across Tamil Nadu for the upcoming elections and one of its poll promises is to pay salary to homemakers.
Here is more.
Context: Tharoor backs the idea of recognizing housework as salaried profession
Earlier today, Tharoor voiced his support for Haasan's idea by tweeting in favor of the same.
The Congress leader said, "I welcome @ikamalhaasan's idea of recognising housework as a salaried profession, w/the state govt paying a monthly wage to homemakers. This will recognise and monetize the services of women homemakers in society, enhance their power & autonomy & create near-universal basic income (sic)."

However, Tharoor's tweet did not sit well with Ranaut, who opposed the idea of recognizing housework done by homemakers as a salaried profession.
She tweeted, "Don't put a price tag on sex we have with our love, don't pay us for mothering our own, we don't need salary for being the Queens of our own little kingdom our home, stop seeing everything as business."
Response: 'Worse to reduce home owner to home employee'
The actor also responded to a Twitter user, who said that "working men (are) given more value."
She said, "It will be worse to reduce a home owner to home employ, to give price tag to mothers sacrifices and life long unwavering commitment, It's like you want to pay God for this creation, cause you suddenly pity him for his efforts (sic)."
Fact: 'Partially painful and partially funny thought'
Other details: Haasan's idea about the provision of paying homemakers
As part of his poll campaign, Haasan has said that homemakers would receive payment for their work if his party comes to power in Tamil Nadu.
Haasan had made the announcement in his seven-point plan, "Governance and Economic Agenda."
"Homemakers will get their due recognition through payment for their work at home which hitherto has been unrecognized and unmonetized," the release said.
