Aditya Roy Kapur on ‘toxic masculinity’
When asked to put forward his views on the term ‘toxic masculinity’, Aditya said that its concept has changed over the years and the phrase “should be used with care” because it is causing identity crisis in men. He asserted that the casual use of the phrase has made things worse and has actually caused confusion.
When Aditya was asked if men are under pressures which they don’t speak about, he went on to share a ‘crazy statistic’ which he saw recently. He stated, “I don’t want to be dark here but 78% of all suicides committed last year were men. And only one-third of people in therapy are men. So, it obviously means that men are in crisis of sorts as well.”

I did not make a big deal about it, and security quickly took care of the situation.”
