Amitabh Bachchan’s performance is Pink has put him right on the top at every award ceremony this year. After picking the best actor award at Stardust Awards 2016 on Monday evening, the superstar said it is the final reach of the message delivered through Pink — give women the respect and dignity they deserve — which makes him happy.
Speaking to indianexpress.com, Big B said, “Pink was a very important film for all us, our society and our country. The subject was a very important one. I have always held that daughters should get love and respect in our society. And whatever we said through this film I believe has affected the minds of many people. The most important thing was the message ‘no means no’. This message has given the country a new challenge, a new slogan. I am happy about it and also the fact that women liked it. I have always believed that women form 50 percent strength of our country and they must be given the dignity and respect that they deserve. I am happy to be associated with that cause through a film that propagates this dialogue.”
