As #MeToo movement has created a wave of revolution in Bollywood, many celebs have supported and demeaned the act of sexual misconduct that has been followed as a tradition in Bollywood since ages. With many eminent superstars keeping their silence on the matter, only a few have revolted and stood by the movement and the victims.


After receiving backlash from the masses for keeping his silence on the crucial cases of sexual harassment prevailing in Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan has finally reacted to the ongoing #MeToo movement.


The legendary actor was questioned about the grave issue of sexual harassment in Bollywood. Talking about the same, he said to a leading daily, "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 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."


Earlier, Amitabh Bachchan had refused to comment about Tanushree-Nana Patekar case during the promotions of Thugs Of Hindostan, for which he was trolled ruthlessly. Tanushree Dutta too had expressed her displeasure over Sr Bachchan's irresponsible behaviour for not addressing the issue publicly. She had said, "I'm hurt, as these are people who do movies on social causes. They play roles in films and the audience applauds. But when it comes to standing up and doing something about what is happening in front of you, there are these evasive statements that don't make sense."
