"Child trafficking not only a menace but it is also a blot on the society. We as a society should put all our will and force in place to stop it immediately," tweeted Manoj Bajpayee on Tuesday.
The actor's tweet comes in response to a tweet by filmmaker Nikkhil Advani who mentioned how the number of child marriages has gone up during the pandemic.
"Just to put it in perspective. A very credible source tells me 'the number of child marriages have increased as #COVID19 gets tackled..' What's the connection? GIRLS ARE BEING SOLD FOR FAMILIES TO SURVIVE. #ChildTrafficking," tweeted the filmmaker.
Manoj Bajpayee has earlier worked in the film "Love Sonia" that deals with child trafficking.
