Superstar Amitabh Bachchan has completely nailed it in ‘Pink’ where he plays a lawyer. Fresh faces Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Andrea Tariang play pivotal roles in the film and Bachchan is all praise for the young brigade. Big B, being the humble soul he is, did something really innovative to pay tribute to not only his female co-stars, but all the women out there.
As the film ends and credits appear, the three ladies have their names coming before that of Bachchan, reports a leading publication. This is the first time that his name will be appearing after female leads. The film revolves around sexual harassment and moral policing on women and this specifically looks like a conscious decision from the makers’ end to show respect to women.
Shah Rukh Khan, who also upholds the importance of gender equality, decided to let his leading ladies’ names appear before his, starting from Chennai Express.
Will this start a new trend in Bollywood? Time will tell.
