“Are you a virgin, Miss Arora?” Amitabh Bachchan’s character asks a sexual assault victim in court.

“How long have you been soliciting,” asks another lawyer, the question was again posed to a sexual assault survivor.

Dubbed as social thriller of the year, Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Pink’ attempts to challenge rape victim blaming, dubious morals and double standards of conservative societies when it comes to sexual assault.

Apparently a courtroom drama, the trailer of the movie raises some serious questions about how our society views rape victims and even questions their morals.

As the hard-hitting trailer moves forward, questions regarding consent in sex, victim harassment and lack of legal and social support all pop-up.
