A first on television, Star Plus is telecasting the brave story ‘Kya Qusoor Hai Amla Ka’? as part of its afternoon programming line-up at 12.30 pm. The show is an official adaptation of the acclaimed international Turkish series ‘Fatmagul’, which has been remade with an Indian cultural backdrop. The show portrays Amla as a girl of substance and a survivor who has the conviction to fight for justice, conquering the demons in people’s minds, and reinforcing through her story that the shame should rightfully be placed with the perpetrator and not the survivor of sexual assault.

Star Plus and Jan Sahas have tied up for providing support and aid to survivors of sexual assault via Jan Sahas toll-free helpline which is 180030002852.
Amitabh Bachchan is also part of this campaign on ‘Victim Shaming’ urges families, authority figures and citizens to reflect upon the need to break the tolerance towards how survivors of sexual assault are treated. Society has failed these survivors by stripping them off their dignity through incessant interrogation about the horrific incident by authority figures and merciless character assassination, shaming her instead of the perpetrators. In a Public Service Awareness Initiative by Star Plus, Bachchan questions these culprits of character assassination with one pertinent question: Whose fault is it? The campaign advocates the thought that society needs to place the guilt rightfully on the perpetrators by putting them on trial instead of shaming the survivors.
