• Watch Akshay Kumar's take on Bengaluru molestation case

    5th January 2017

    The one incident that took the nation by rage of fire was the Bengaluru mass molestation incident wherein a woman was sexually assaulted by two men on new year's eve. While every Bollywood celebrity expressed their own views on the issue, khiladi Akshay Kumar has a different perspective. He posted a video on his twitter handle and captioned it as, "The Bangalore incident makes me feel we r evolving backwards,from humans to animals,rather beasts coz even animals are better!Truly shameful."

    In the video posted by him, Akshay is addressing the issue in a different perspective. When he heard about the incident, he was just returning from a holiday with his family. He heard the news on airport and his mind was filled with rage and anger. He says that even he is a father of a daughter and even if he would have not been one, he would say that the society which doesn't give respect to women has no right to live in. Everytime society questions the type of clothes a woman wear. It is not the size of clothes that matters, it's the size of mentality of the people in the society that really matters. The people who do such kind of things are not from any other planet, they belong to the society where we live together. He also says the day when women will backanswer is the day when such men will directly go to hell.

    And he has a special message for girls too. A woman is no less than a man. She too can take safety measures and can learn the techniques of martial arts to handle such men. Girls should learn to take care of herself. He concludes by saying, when anyone from the society ever comments on the type of clothes that you are wearing, just tell them to keep this advice to themselves and mind your own business.
