Sonakshi Sinha attended the Mumbai Fourth Annual Women’s Safety and Empowerment Short-Film Contest and Festival and Awards Ceremony.
On the occasion, the actress spoke about the gender violence against women and said, “I want to be live in a world where we as women are able to choose. We have been playing waiting game for the longest time. Women are always waiting to be protected, rescued, for permission, validation, acceptance and approval. We live in a country where we worship goddess Laxmi, Saraswati, Kali and Durga but we eliminate girl child before she sees the world. I don’t want to live in a world like that and honestly, an initiative to end up gender based violence is a commendable effort.”
She further added and said, “I have been part of Hindi film industry, being an actor gives me a voice and perspective, gives me ways and means to make difference. Being here today I am really happy that so many people have taken the effort to making these short films and showcasing there films over here. Through this medium we can reach out to so many people across the world and create some sort of awareness.”
