Kolkata, Nov 15: Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday recalled the contribution of Indian cinema in fostering social unity, communal amity and love at a time when “cultures are being questioned and prejudices against communities are dividing the world”.

It is essential to recall the lessons of equality and cultural diversity taught by Rabindranath Tagore at a time when cultures are being questioned and prejudices against communities are dividing the world, he said during the Kolkata International Film Festival.

 These age-old values are once again being highlighted in Indian cinema and constantly emphasize deep belief in equality and social justice, the veteran actor said.

Bachchan’s comments come at a time when a debate on intolerance in the country which has led to several writers, filmmakers and eminent personalities returning their awards is raging.
