The appalling Bengaluru Mass Molestation has left the entire country in shock. Not just the commoners but even the film industry has come out and spoken vehemently against the shameful incident.
From Akshay Kumar to Aamir Khan, all the bigwigs of Bollywood have expressed their fury against the molesters and have even cited the importance of men treating women with respect.
Father of two sons, Shah Rukh Khan recently opened up about the same and revealed how he strictly expects his sons to respect women and be on their best behavior around them.
In an interview with Femina, SRK said,”I tell Aryan and even AbRam never hurt a woman. If you do, I’ll behead you. And no, times have not changed. A girl is not your chhadi-buddy; show some respect.”
It’s commendable how the stars realize their standing and the fact that their views can influence many people at end. They make sure that they are heard loud and clear when it comes to addressing the social evils of our society.
The stars have not just fearlessly taken digs at politicos for playing the blame game and not taking necessary actions but they have also stressed on the fact that the men have to take a united stand and ensure the safety of the womankind. In fact, stars like Akshay Kumar even organize free martial arts camps for the ladies to learn the art of self-defence. Filmmaker/actor Farhan Akhtar even launched a social campaign called MARD – Men against Rape and discrimination in 2013.
They are doing their bit, the question is are you?
