Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan attended a celebrity event before the official start of the World Economic Forum's annual event at Davos on Tuesday.
The 52-year-old actor spoke against discrimination against women and sexism.
"From them, I have learned how courage can catalyse victimhood into heroism," he said, referring to the acid victims.
"We, the powerful, need to get out of the way, to pick the barriers apart, the ones that give us names and races and colours and hierarchies," he said.
"That is what I have learned from my beautifully scarred women," he added.
Extremely charged that I've had this amazing opportunity, this award, being recognized like this for minuscule work that I did, I'd like to do it with even more fervor. What is even more pleasant is that India is here in full power: Shah Rukh Khan in Davos #WorldEconomicForum2018pic.twitter.com/aWQI99YAE3
