During the trailer launch of his film, Thugs Of Hindostan, Amitabh Bachchan had dodged the question on Tanushree Dutta's sexual harassment allegations against Nana Patekar. However, now the actor has finally responded to the same. Recently, the senior actor tweeted a link to an interview which was themed around his birthday, which is today. In an interview, Sr Bachchan broke his silence on the #MeToo movement which has entered our country.
In his conversation, the veteran actor said that women should not be subjected to sexual harassment at workplace. "No woman should ever be subjected to any kind of misbehavior, or disorderly conduct ; especially at her work place. Such acts should immediately be brought to the notice of concerned authorities, and corrective measures be taken, either through filing complaints or a recourse to law. Discipline and civic, social and moral curriculum, should be adopted at a very early educational level. Women children and the weaker sections of our society are the most vulnerable. They need to be under special protective care. It has been most heartening to see women representations in most work vocations, on the increase in our country. It would be an irreparable blemish if we are not able to provide them the welcome they deserve and the dignity of the security of their presence," he said.

Earlier, when he was asked to comment on Tanushree Dutta's matter, the actor had said, "Neither am I Tanushree, nor am I Nana Patekar, so how can I comment on this?" Disappointed by his response, Tanushree had said, "I’m hurt, as these are people who do movies on social causes. They play roles in films and the audience applauds. But when it comes to standing up and doing something about what is happening in front of you, there are these evasive statements that don’t make sense."
