Bollywood mourns Delhi rape victim’s death

entire country is mourning the death of  the Delhi gang rape victim who is being called by various names – Nirbhaya, Amaanat, Daamini. The braveheart’s death has left people in grief at the atrocity. Sharing their grief on Twitter, below are few of the Bollywood celebrities.

Abhishek Bachchan: I have always been a very proud Indian. Today, we should ALL be ashamed. Will it always take an innocents death for a nation to awake? This is not the country I grew up in as a child, this is not the country I want my daughter to know whilst she grows up!

Akshay Kumar: Our fighter lost the battle of life. Her only fault, she ventured out of the house at night, walking the streets of the national capital expecting to be safe. The day a woman can walk freely on the roads at night is when India will be truly independent. RIP democracy!

Amitabh Bachchan: ‘Amanat’, ‘Damini’ just a name now… her body has passed away, but her soul shall shall forever stir our hearts.

Anubhav Sinha: ASHAMED…. That I belong to a race that commits such heinous acts. My apologies to all women. RIP would be such a farce.

Anupam Kher: This is Death of Human Dignity, Death of Being an Indian, Death of Innocence and This is also Death of A System. India is Heart Broken. RIP.

Arjun Rampal: Amanat, has died and has left this country to hang its head down in shame. I sincerely do hope there will be redemption for her soul.

Boman Irani: She was like a soldier of revolution. If forgotten, the shame on us is greater than the one’s we accuse!

Chitrangada Singh: This is painful beyond words . ..we failed her once I hope we don’t fail her again .. There must be redemption for Amanat ! God bless !

Dia Mirza: RIP dear one. I feel like a part of me died today.

Javed Akhtar: She died and not only the govt and the police but the whole society you me and every one is standing in the docks . We,the mute spectators of violence towards women at home and at public places Are we also not responsible for what is happening.

Karan Johar: RIP to a brave girl who fought in a weak and paralysed country.. Shame on all of us.

Madhur Bhandarkar: RIP Damini, today is a dark day in our democracy. We should pledge not to let dust settle on this fight till the end.

Poonam Pandey: Nirbhaya damini amanat… Whatever ur name is… still cant believe u r no more… its disturbing… :’( :’( She died a death that she didn’t deserve at all. No woman deserves this death, this type of inhumane treatment.

Shabana Azmi: And SHE PASSES AWAY in Singapore. RIP. Our impotence stares us in the face. May SHE become the wake-up call our country needs. We must soul search. Female foeticide; inequal access to nutrition, education, health; no decision making powers; dowry demands; rapes rampant. INDIA WAKE UP.

Shahid Kapoor: The innocent dies while the guilty still live ….. Shameful day sad day …. Reality staring us in our faces …. We need CHANGE

Shahrukh Khan: We couldn’t save u but wot a big voice u have, u brave little girl.That voice is telling us that rape is not an aberration,not a mistake… Rape embodies sexuality as our culture & society has defined it. i am so sorry that i am a part of this society and culture… I am so sorry that I am a man.I promise I will fight with ur voice. I will respect women, so that I gain my daughter’s respect.

Shekhar Kapur: Her greatest betrayal is that we will forget. Political systems’ greatest hope is we will forget. Our only redemption is if we do not forget.

Sonakshi Sinha: The girl isn’t dead. Instead she’s moved to a better place where no rapes happen. Too bad that place doesn’t exist in apna Bharat mahaan.

Sonam Kapoor: Please don’t let her tragic death be in vain. RIP nirbhaya. This has been our countrys most shameful moment. I hope we can atone for what has been done.

Sophie Choudry: Her plight made the nation rise up & address an issue that’s bn ignored too long!She must not become anothr statistic!Kp the momentum alive!

  1. Its the not the bollywood industry’s fault, a women has the freedom to wear whatever she wants, she could walk on the streets in a bikini or a salwar suit if she wants to. its the men who think women as an object, something they can toy around with, someone who they can abuse. it doesnt matter if women wear salwar suit or bikini. the men who are dirty minded and perverts will still rape them. the girl who got raped in delhi was she half naked? no was she doing anything wrong? no. bu she still got raped. ITS ABOUT TIME WE STOP FINDING PEOPLE TO BLAME START FIXING OURSELFS, START TEACHING LITTLE KIDS ABOUT RESPECTING EVERYONE SO THAT THEY DONT TURN OUT TO BE RAPISTS. REST IN PEACE GIRL, I HOPE THAT NOW YOU HAVE FOUND THE ETERNAL PEACE THAT YOU COULDNT FIND IN INDIA. AND THOSE BASTARDS WHO RAPED HER, I HOPE THEY ARE BURNT ALIVE AND ROT IN HELL FOREVER.

    1. totally agreed….
      instead of bringing about a change…we start blaming what we see in front of our eyes….

      i dont understand what this whole discussion is about…
      arent the bollywood actors entitled to their own opinions??

      whatever we see in the movies….. it all depends on your mind set…..what u grasp from it……..
      women are not shown as objects….they are depicted as beauty…..and as riddhima says…. it is the men who look at them as objects…

  2. I agree….shameless..i don’t think he is rude.every one have a right to their opinion….besides
    Bollywood is crap….disgusting people and movies…..this Mahesh Bhatt…..his movies is not teaching young people anything…just a bunch of crap…pure crap…only negative things coming out of Bollywood…They so want to be like Hollywood…. Hollywood is nothing but a city of SIN….so go bollywood you are behind…

  3. To al u guys who think movies are teaching youth i think u guys re wrong its not movies. its a person mentallity… people who behave sick lyk this should b hanged upside down n burnt alive.. And there private part choped off..

  4. It is unfortunate that this country has a passive Prime Minister who is too soft to take appropriate measures. These rapists barabarians should be tortured in public and hanged till death.

  5. i agree wid u mr fardeen! they show women as objects in bollywood movies, a male hero dancing in front, mostly fully dressed, while there r abt 50 half naked girls dancing behind him like they are some colourful decoration pieces! how does this show respect to women when they are shown like some toys to play with? even the heroine of the films r mostly shown half naked. why can’t they make movies without degrading women like this? they used to have movies in olden times too, but they didn’t show such nudity of women and the movies were still loved and watched by people and some are even remembered today. i’m 18 and even i love watching old movies more than the new movies cuz in old movies women were shown as a figure of respect, wearing graceful saris and salwar kameez etc. nudity of women doesn’t make a movie successful, a good story, good acting and good music makes it successful, and good dance too, for which you don’t have to make the women half naked. i wish film makers would understand this.

    1. film makers try to make good movies movies with less nudity of women but then what do they get a flop movie so instead they think of ways that will make their movies be a blockbuster film which meas they have to have nudity of women in it. for instance The Dirty Picture was a hit movie why because of the type of scenes it had it was like a total nude film so all the film makers are trying to do is making their film a hit. they don’t tell you to do all this in real life

      1. buhh they r the role models nd the public want to copy their role models as they thnk ths is the reaity nd real hottness so ths is the film tht show its audience to brng chnge in ‘em

      2. That depends on what you understand……
        Dirty Picture was a movie which showed you how your pride can bring downfall….

        It is your problem if you decide to look at it with lustful eyes….
        You can’t blame media for all this….
