It seems like #MeToo movement in Bollywood is in full swing as more and more women stepping up and sharing their horrifying experiences. It all started after Tanushree Dutta accuses Nana Patekar of harassing her on sets of the film ‘Horn Ok Pleassss’ 10 years ago.
After this many renowned personalities like Vikas Bahl, Kailash Kher, Chetan Bhagat, Rajat Kapoor names have come under scanner for their inappropriate behaviour towards women.
While a lot of celebrities are expressing their opinion on the current wave of #MeToo movement, Amitabh Bachchan also has something to share. The actor took to Twitter and shared a link of the interview in which he said, “No woman should ever be subjected to any kind of misbehaviour, or disorderly conduct; especially at her work place. 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.
The actor further added, “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.”
