New Delhi [India], Sept. 23 (ANI): Amitabh Bachchan recently described Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury directed 'Pink' as an opportunity for women to speak out.

The 73-year-old superstar, who plays a lawyer in the movie, said pink is no longer just a colour or connotes a young girl and her Barbie doll, reports filmfare.com.

"Pink means you have the freedom and liberty to walk at night. Women got the opportunity to speak out through this film," the actor said in a statement.

Bachchan pointed out the relevance of 'Pink' in tackling the situations and problems women face in India and the world at large.

Referring to his co-star Taapsee Pannu, he stated the "experiences" which she went through while travelling in DTC buses.

"The film will now teach girls like her to go to police station and lodge protest. This is the victory of Pink," he encouraged.

" Pink has given rise to such a movement," he added. (ANI)
