Was in Mumbai last week when the horrible gang rape occurred. Oh how sad it was to note that it hardly stirred a whisper amongst the Bollywood elite. Activists and the police were quick the react and rightly so. However, sad as it sounds, no group in India has more clout over public awareness and sentiments than Bollywood stars. Where are the Bachans, Khans and Kapoors when their public condemnation and outcries can reach way beyond the scope of the activists. The stars are plastered all over billboards across the city endorsing products of all sorts. I do hope on my next visit I see the same faces shaming the coward rapists and their acts. Until then TV and news networks should work with the activists to get the stars to speak out on-air denouncing these barbaric crimes. Cricket stars should also be contribute in the same manner.
