Bollywood continues to condemn Bengaluru molestation on social media


The film fraternity generally never shies away from stating their opinion over social matters. Whether it was the much discussed about Nirbhaya rape case in Delhi or the recent mass molestation case during New Year’s Eve in Bengaluru, several celebrities have time and again supported the victims and even started campaigns on social media.

While celebrities like Farhan Akhtar and Taapsee Pannu expressed their hatred and anger towards the criminal, what also left many miffed was the statement made by politician Abu Azmi. His statement where he blamed a woman’s dressing sense and compared them to sugar to be fed to ants sparked a nationwide outrage with celebrities condemning his statements as well as the act that is currently being called as ‘Night of Shame’.

In fact, recently when Hrithik Roshan was asked about his comments on the Bengaluru incident when innumerable women were assaulted and harassed, the superstar said, “I wasn’t here. I didn’t see the news in real time but yes it is sad. We all bear a responsibility and we all must do something about that. I feel very strongly as a father, as the member of the society that if something like this is happening in an environment so close to me then I definitely must be impacted, I must be affected and I must do something about it.” Hrithik Roshan was promoting his forthcoming film and his reported statements came in the wake of incident as reporters questioned the actor about the same.

On the other hand, many from the industry continue to unleash their rage and disappointment over the incident on Twitter and other social media platforms:
