Amitabh Bachchan breaks silence on #MeToo

Recently, Amitabh Bachchan respinded to few questions related to his birthday plans, unfulfilled dreams, his upcoming films and women’s safety at the workplace in an interview. The Bollywood megastar shared these details to us on the occassion of his 76th birthday.


While tackling various other questions by Subhash K Jha, Amitabh Bachchan tweeted a long reply. One of the question asked by Jha read, “Amitji, we are going through some of the toughest times this nation has ever seen. How do you view the atrocities against women children and weaker sections? Do you feel there is a solution to the social inequality that fosters widespread injustice? Sexual harassment at workplaces especially in the entertainment business is one of the vital issues being addressed today. How do you look at the problem of women’s safety at workplaces?”


To this, Amitabh Bachchan responded by saying, “No woman should ever be subjected to any kind of misbehavior, or disorderly conduct; especially at her workplace. Such acts should immediately be brought to the notice of concerned authorities, and corrective measures be taken, either through filing complaints or a recourse to law. Discipline and civic, social and moral curriculums, should be adopted at a very early educational level. Women children and the weaker sections of our society are the most vulnerable. They need to be under special protective care. It has been most heartening to see women representations in most work vocations, on the increase in our country. It would be an unrepairable blemish if we are not able to provide them the welcome they deserve and the dignity of the security of their presence.”
Amitabh Bachchan finally took on the #MeToo movement in India on his 76th birthday.
