The Bengaluru molestation incident that took place on New Year’s eve shook the entire nation. People across the world were stunned by the accounts given by the victims of this heinous act. Various celebrities including Aamir Khan, Salim Khan spoke about the matter, expressing their disappointment. During such a tragic moment, we met up with Kaabil director Sanjay Gupta and asked him about what he felt about the incident.
Expressing his anger, Sanjay Gupta revealed that this situation in not ideal for his own daughter to grow up. Being his non-diplomatic self, the Kaabil director said, “I am extremely angry with this whole government and that’s just me. I’m not at all happy with everything that’s going on and this is the worst. Let me tell you something and here, I don’t want to be diplomatic. I have a daughter who’s going to grow up and I don’t want my daughter growing up in this world. I don’t want to tell my daughter that ‘beta don’t wear that skirt and go out’ and why should I say it to my daughter, if I’m saying it to my son!? I can feel that way and I’m sure that people in power also have daughters and wives. Don’t they care about all this and how difficult is it to find those people?”
He even questioned the slow pace of sentencing and laws in such cases. As Sanjay added, “The biggest thing that angers me is that a convicted rapist ka mooh kyun dhak kar tum ghoomte ho and why are you giving him that privilege? Show his face to the world and who has made such rules and why? On the Nirbahya thing, the sentencing is still left. Talking about Bengaluru, it’s no different from other cities. Bengaluru pe zyada bill phat raha hai, sab jagah hota hai, what matters where is it reported. This time it was on camera, so the media picked it up. Laws have to change.”
