Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday had opposed to Kamal Haasan's idea of wages for homemakers. While Shashi Tharoor had backed Kamal Haasan's thought of making it a salaried profession by tweeting, "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 & monetise the services of women homemakers in society, enhance their power& autonomy & create near-universal basic income." 

In response, Kangana disagreed with the two politicians entirely and says there can be no price tag on this. 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. Surrender to your woman she needs all of you not just your love/respect/salary." 

Shashi Tharoor then replied to Kangana saying that while he does agree with her partially, he also highlighted the "value of unpaid work". He added that he wants Indian women to be as empowered as her. 

Replying to Kangana, Tharoor said, "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!"

What does she know about being a housewife or what housewives need? Maybe she knows about being a side chick to married men, but that's different.

See, this is the way to respond to Kangana. The underlying intention should be understood behind her criticism. She feels that it is her right to be vocal when she disagrees and most of the time we agree because we know what she means. But the person/people who is/are at the other side would attack her, gang up against her and try to destroy her because well she has the audacity to find fault/s in them. They can't take the fact a woman has the courage to stand up against them. All they have to do is see the intention behind her words and respond with dignity. I agree that he has shown more dignity than her in this case, and she can learn to be dignified and she will if more people learn how to respond criticism with dignity.

He is being too nice considering how rude Kangana is. Even though I dont agree with paying housewives Kangana makes me think otherwise with her stupid arguements. Who needs to pay housewives? Is it husbands? Then they would have to agree on terms and conditions. We should be aiming at making women get job and both husband and wife share household work

Kangana has the most useless mouth in the world!!! That’s why parents say first finish your education. She is uneducated. You should not expect better from her.
