Author and Politician, Shashi Tharoor responded to actor Kangana Ranaut’s refutation to his call for homemaking to be designated a salaried profession.
Earlier on Tuesday, Kangana had said, “we don’t need salary for being the Queens of our own little kingdom.”
A response to this statement, Tharoor tweeted, “I agree w/ @KanganaTeam that there are so many things in a homemaker’s life that are beyond price. But this is not about those things: it’s about recognising the value of unpaid work & also ensuring a basic income to every woman. I’d like all Indian women to be as empowered as you!”

However, In his original tweet, Tharoor supported actor-politician Kamal Haasan’s ‘idea of recognising housework as a salaried profession’. To which he wrote, “This will recognise & monetise the services of women homemakers in society, enhance their power& autonomy & create near-universal basic income.”
The queen actress then had responded, “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. Surrender to your woman she needs all of you not just your love/respect/salary.”
Responding to another Twitter user, she also called the idea of paying someone and making them into an ‘employee’ a ‘painful’ thought. Kangana later patted herself on the back for believing that she could hold conversations on a plethora of topics. “Lot of people are jealous of my ability to debate on almost any topic how I peel psychological layers of my opponents and penetrate like X ray in to any subject. Don’t be jealous or angry try and sharpen your intellect and really truly invest yourself in your surroundings,” she wrote.
