She went on to say, "It's a fact that men most of the time are physically stronger than women and the conversation was in the context of a task, when taken out of context, it has a completely different meaning. Also, the context was about two housemates but the entire conversation has been taken out of context and the facts change when they aren't in context. Raqesh has always believed in women empowerment".
