Amitabh Bachchan Lauds Documentary On Violence Against Women

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who recently met a woman making a documentary on violence against women, seemed quite impressed with the lady and took to his blog to write about it.

Big B wrote, “It is a brave effort on her part to construct a subject through film, her first, on a subject that is so prevalent in society today, and one that needs to be addressed immediately. Good luck to her. Directors should come up with more films on real subjects.”

Bachchan also praised the kind of offbeat films such as Kahaani, Paan Singh Tomar and Vicky Donor, that are being made lately. The Shahenshah added, “The world of cinema in India is changing so rapidly it is difficult to keep up with them. I am delighted to be in the company of some of them and to share and perhaps participate in their dreams. I do realize my standing and that it does not weigh too heavily when in comparison with the young. However, I shall endeavor and put in hard work and perhaps attempt to be in the company which deserves mention.”
