MUMBAI: Amitabh Bachchan said the Supreme Court of India verdict on triple talaq speaks for itself and that “we can’t argue with the law of our country”. He said, “The judgement speaks for itself and we can’t argue with the law of our country.” The actor was speaking at the press conference of Kaun Banega Crorepati. The Piku star said he felt saddened with the way women face restrictions in the society.
“Young girls are prevented from being educated because she is going to get married, so why waste money on her. I feel sad for them. They defy all the social norms that may be prevalent in their villages and in their lives for so many years to come out and sit in front of me on the hot seat (for KBC)…They succeed in what they had visioned for them (which) is so inspiring to see,” he added.
Bachchan said when he does a film like Pink, he doesn’t think twice. “Because I know the kind of circumstances that women in our country, particularly young women, go through every day. And in some way if I can put this message across through this show about them defying social norms, which have been pressurising them, I think that is a great feeling,” he said.
