Big B (Amitabh Bachchan) India’s biggest film star, has already made the most important statement for gender equality. The actor tweeted an image which said, “When I die, the assets I shall leave behind, shall be shared equally between my daughter and my son.
Big B has two children — actor Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Shweta Nanda. He captioned the picture as, “#WeAreEqual .. and #genderequality … the picture says it all !!”
The move has a lot of relevance in India where traditionally a father bequeaths his all to his sons. Despite courts coming to the aid of beleaguered daughters, the tradition continues as is. Taking to his blog, the actor seems to be talking about the image when he says.
