Amitabh Bachchan, who initially dodged the questions related to the Tanushree-Nana controversy, has finally broken his silence on the MeToo movement. The veteran actor who celebrated his birthday on Thursday took to his twitter and shared a link to an interview in which he was seen talking about the safety of women in the industry.
On being asked about the sexual harassment at workplace in entertainment business, Amitabh was quoted saying to an unknown publication, “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. Discipline and civic, social and moral curriculum, 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 un-repairable blemish if we are not able to provide them the welcome they deserve and the dignity of the security of their presence,”
On the work front Amitabh Bachchan will be next seen in Thugs Of Hindostan along with Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, which is slated to release on 8th November this year.
