To say that Shoojit Sircar’s Pink is one of the most ground-breaking films of the year 2016 would be an understatement. Not only did it win the hearts of the audience but it also managed to stir some very important debates around feminism and women empowerment.
Amitabh Bachchan evoked goosebumps in the audience in Aniruddha Roy Chaudhary's Pink earlier this year, whether it was narrating an awe-inspiring poem during the end credits or while delivering the popular `NO means NO' dialogue sequence towards the end of the film.
It evoked the right sentiment amongst the youth and proved to be so powerful that it was used as a platform to promote the Zero FIR law and to sensitise police forces towards women.
The film was widely appreciated, by the audience and the critics alike. Now, it finds itself at the end of a special honour. Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations has extended a special invitation to the makers of Pink asking them to screen the film at the UN Headquarters in New York.
The 73-year-old actor, who plays a lawyer in the film, took to Twitter to make the announcement. "PINK invited for a special screening of the film at UN Head Quarters, in New York .. by Assistant Secretary General .. honoured,” Bachchan posted.
