As the news broke out, netizens rushed to pass judgements and trolling began heavily across social media. Because of the widespread hate and harsh trolls, few members of the film fraternity decided to extend their support to SRK. Pooja Bhatt tweeted, “I stand in solidarity with you @iamsrk. Not that you need it. But I do. This too, shall pass.” Director Hansal Mehta took to the micro-blogging site and wrote, “It is painful for a parent Salman Khan, having to deal with a child getwho is a dear friend of ting into trouble.

Bhumi Pednekar has started an advocacy campaign, Climate Warrior W HEN in doubt, say it aloud with a filmy dialogue’. Like the Mumbai police, which have often showcased their creative side to educate people about law. This time they have singled out dialogues from Bollywood films which objectify women and asking the public not to normalise misogyny. We talk to celebs to know their opinion on the same and films or dialogues they have found offensive. PHOTOS: TWITTER HANDLE@MUMBAIPOLICE The Mumbai police show the way to revolt against misogyny & celebs are all praise for this move Thank you note TWEET CHECK! “Cinema is a reflection of society. Here are (just) a few (of many) dialogues both our society & cinema need to reflect upon. Choose your words & actions with care unless you want the law to intervene!” tweeted Mumbai Police with misogynistic dialogues from Bollywood films ranging from Maalamaal (1988) to Kabir Singh. And not only the tweet went viral but was hailed by social media apps across Twitter for starting a dialogue about all the right things. If a Twitter user writes, “Thanks @MumbaiPolice for showing mirror to #Bollywood and its so called film critics#LetsNotNormaliseMisogyny, then another calls it a ‘Wonderful message by @MumbaiPolice’. As goes the rule that nothing on social media that won’t get trolled, some were quick to remind the police on other bigger concerns. A user by the name Zee commented, “Focus on potholes & traffic, not misogyny.” But the Mumbai police once again won hearts with its reply to shut down trolls and telling why misogyny is a pressing issue, “With due respect to the need of addressing the other concerns you mentioned, misogyny seems to be a lesser problem in the nature of comparison you have drawn. Exactly the reason why #LetsNotNormaliseMisogyny needs to be reiterated as many times and in as many ways.” THE RIGHT ENTERTAINMENT Prateik Chaudhary says, “Kudos to Mumbai police! Please keep posting such content. It really makes a difference. There are so many people who think of misogyny as entertainment and we need to change that. I have heard this dialogue from many movies and also in real world “kya maal hai”. It’s unacceptable to address woman as maal.” THERE’S MORE Haq Se actress Nikkesha believes television needs to address their misogynistic char- acters. She adds, “The villain is mostly a scheming woman in the family.” She recalls dialogues which she finds repulsive, “Buddhi ho ya jawaan, melodrama to is duniya ki sari aura to ke khoon me hai from 2 States or Marriage se pehle ladkiyan sex object hoti hain or marriage ke baad they object to sex” from Kambakhht Ishq”. As she reminds us of “Akeli ladki khuli hui tijori ki tarah hoti hai” from Jab We Met, we stumble upon another such dialogue in the list of Mumbai police’s tweets, ‘But I allowed Ayesha to run her business’. Actress Ruhi Singh opines, “We need to understand cinema is not just message oriented, it also is for entertainment purpose and there will be all kinds of stories to tell.
