Mumbai: Amitabh Bachan played an aggressive lawyer in his film ‘Pink’, defending the girls, played by Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang, trying to get justice for them against the sexual harassment that they face. While the film raised the issue brilliantly, the megastar is still trying to draw attention to the menace of sexual harassment faced by girls in real life.

Buoyed by the tremendous critical acclaim and box office success, Bachchan shared a few incidents related to the film, through his tweets. He also tweeted about how Taapsee faced sexual harassment.

Bachchan also shared how a female journalist broke down in tears after watching the film and also said that women are angry after facing these situations regularly.
