Filmmaker Feroz Abbas Khan added, “We want to take this campaign to those who are usually left out of the conversation, we cannot limit our engagement to a reaction but want it to convert into action. Bas Ab Bahut Ho Gaya – Enough Is Enough is a campaign that intends to be a way of continuous and sustained engagement to sensitise people who are usually left out of this conversation. This is our message to men, because agar desh ko badalna hai, toh mard ko badalna hoga”.
