Bollywood actor-producer Aamir Khan, who brought several social issues to the fore through his show "Satyamev Jayate", has now lent support to the fight against alcoholism amongst women. He says women should be forthcoming about admitting their addiction.
Addressing a press conference by Alcoholics Anonymous, an NGO, Aamir said the problem is more complex in India as women never come out and admit that they drink.
"In India, the problem is more complex. There are so many modernistic issues involved with drinking that women would be afraid to even admit openly that they are drinking. Its a very difficult thing for them," the 47-year-old said here Sunday.
"So, the fact that you (female reporters) have come here, will give them a lot of strength, lot of courage and with the media reporting about it, the message that it is a disease will come across. Even if you are a woman and if you are suffering, you need to step out and there is help available to you," he added.
Aamir says eradicating the issue will take time, but it will have to be a continuous struggle.
"Certainly this is a struggle which is a continuous struggle. I don't think that anyone's step is ever the end of it. Its a continuous struggle that we all have to take forward and we have to be committed," Aamir said.
