My assets after my death shall equally be divided between my son and my daughter-Big B

Amitabh Bachchan has taken a big step for gender equality. Big B was seen holding a poster which said his assets will be divided equally between son Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Shweta Nanda. Amitabh Bachchan on Wednesday tweeted an image on tweeter which read “when i die, the asset that I shall left behind, shall equally be shared between my daughter and my son. #GenderEquality #WeAreEqual. It’s just now about a week to go for women’s day and Amitabh Bachchan has made an important decision to promote the occasion and also to share his thoughts regarding the good step people should take and promote. The move has a lot of relevance in India where traditionally a father gives his all to his sons. Despite courts which advocate in favor of daughter`s rights on her father`s property the tradition continues. Big B has two children — actor Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Shweta Nanda. The actor is considered a change maker in the country and his action is expected to at least get a discussion started. Women’s Day will be celebrated on March 8. Amitabh is a big proponent of gender equality and has been in the news this year for his film Pink. The film is about how patriarchy-driven India looks at women and expects them to live by a regressive code. Amitabh played a lawyer in the courtroom drama.Before this Amitabh Bachchan has also written an open heart letter to his granddaughters Adhya and Nanda which read- My very dearest Navya & Aaradhya You both carry a very valuable legacy on your tender shoulders – Aaradhya, the legacy of your pardadaji , Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan…and Navya, the legacy of your pardadaji , Shri H P Nanda…. Both your pardadaji ‘ s gave your present surnames celebrated fame, dignity and recognition ! Both of you may be a Nanda or a Bachchan, but you are also girls…women! And because you are women people will force their thinking, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don’t live in the shadows of people’s judgment. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom. Don’t let anyone make you believe that the length of your skirt is a measure of your character. Don’t let anyone’s opinion of who you should be friends with, dictate who you will be friends with. Don’t get married for any other reason other than you want to get married. People will talk. They shall say some terrible things. But that doesn’t mean you have to listen to everyone. Never ever worry about – log kya kahenge. At the end of the day, you are the only one who will face the consequences of your actions, so don’t let other people make your decisions for you. Navya – the privilege your name, your surname offers you will not protect you from the difficulties you will face because you’re a woman. Aaradhya – by the time you see and understand this, I may well not be around. But I think what I am saying today shall still be relevant. This may be a difficult, difficult world to be a woman. But I believe that it is women like you that will change that. It may not be easy, setting your own boundaries, making your own choices, rising above people‘s judgment. But YOU! You can set an example for women everywhere. Do this and you would have done more than I have ever done, and it will be my honor to be known not as Amitabh Bachchan, but as your grandfather!! With all my love you’re ….Dadaji ….your Nana.
