Amitabh Bachchan believes in fair education for all, be it the country's underprivileged or the women folk. The 69-year-old veteran is driving home the message of importance of knowledge through the current season of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
And Bachchan says he feels proud when girls break the clutches of societal pressures and prove their mettle.
His wife, Jaya Bachchan has been a successful actress, his daughter Shweta Nanda is a well-read lady, and his daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai is among the top-rated celebrities and an international icon.
"When girls fight the society, family and circumstances and then they come and sit on the hot seat, I feel proud because they come there only because of their gyaan (knowledge)," he said.
