Mumbai, March 15 : Actress Paridhi Sharma, who plays the titular role in popular show "Jodha Akbar" hopes people play safe on the festival of Holi and give priority to women's safety.
This year, Holi falls on Monday.
"As a woman, I strongly feel that it is of utmost importance to ensure that on this day of colours and merry-making, we look into the safety of women around us. There are many cases of harassment and eve-teasing around Holi and it is important to be aware of people around you and report any instances of misbehaviour," said Paridhi.
While most people take the liberty of throwing colours and water balloons at strangers, the actress says - "there are many who do not like to play Holi and as mature people, we should know where to draw a line and not force someone."
