In the video, Vinod Khanna can be seen smoking a cigarette and sharing his views on ‘sex’. “Well, I was a bachelor and I am no saint as far as women are concerned. I need sex as much as anybody else does. Without women we won’t be here, without sex we won’t be here, so why should anybody object to my being with women,” he said.
