#MeToo: On 76th birthday, Amitabh Bachchan lends support to movement

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan let his voice to the #MeToo movement on his 76th birthday on Thursday. According to news agency ANI, Bachchan said that no woman should ever feel uncomfortable in her workplace.

"No woman should ever be subjected to any kind of misbehaviour, or disorderly conduct; especially at her workplace. 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 (sic)," the legendary star wrote in an interview posted by him on his Twitter handle.

"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," the post further read as quoted by ANI.

The #MeToo movement gained momentum last year in Hollywood after various stories about decades-long predation of movie producer Harvey Weinstein came to the fore. In India, it gathered pace after actor Tanushree Dutta accused Nana Patekar of harassing her on the sets of the 2008-film Horn ‘OK’ Please!!!
