Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan is clearly “Mahanayak” of the century. He floors fans with his performance onscreen and guides thousands towards a better lifestyle at the same time. While he has often championed the cause of the girl child and her importance, Amitabh went a step ahead Wednesday night.

Amitabh seems to have kickstarted the celebrations for Women’s Day, which is celebrated on March 8.

Big B took to Twitter and shared a picture where he is holding a placard that declares that all his assets shall be divided equally between his daughter and son after his death.

Apart from his frequent social media posts about heartfelt passion for daughters, Amitabh is also hailed as a champion of gender equality ever since his film Pink, starring Taapsee Pannu, impressed critics and fans alike with the message that stressed the importance of a woman’s consent.

Right before the release of his film in September 2016, Amitabh wrote an open letter to his granddaughters Aradhya Bachchan and Navya Naveli Nanda, urging them to follow their hearts and never bend to social conventions.
