Senior Bachchan also called for the awareness at an educational level. "Discipline and civic, social and moral curriculums, 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," the post further read.

"It has been most heartening to see women representations in most work vocations, on the increase in our country. It would be an unrepairable blemish if we are not able to provide them the welcome they deserve and the dignity of the security of their presence," wrote the star.
In the interview, Big B also spoke of his upcoming movie Thugs of Hindostan, his film career and the varied experience of his life.
