The MeToo movement gaining pace in India, many Bollywood celebs have come out to share their horrific experience of sexual harassment on the social media.
With names of Alok Nath, Rajat Kapoor, Vikas Bahl, Chetan Bhagat, Rohit Roy, among others coming to the light for their involvement in the heinous crimes, many have been questioning the recourse in place to make sure sexual harassment at workplace is dealt with sternly.
Last evening we saw Aamir Khan issuing a statement wherein he announced he won’t be producing Mogul any longer since one of the member Subhash Kapoor has been alleged of sexual harassment.
Now, Amitabh Bachchan who turns 76 today, in an interview opened up about sexual harassment at workplace and 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. Discipline and civic, social and moral curriculums, should be adopted at a very early educational level.”

He added, “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.”>
