'Mardaani' not crusade against men: Rani Mukerji
Posted on Sep 04 2014 | IANS
New Delhi, Sep 4 : Actress Rani Mukerji is seen as a strong police officer bashing up men in her latest outing "Mardaani". But she says that the film, highlighting the issue of human trafficking, is not against the gender.
After helping Apne Aap Women Worldwide's survivor activist, Fatima Khatoon win Rs.25 lakh at the eight season of "Kaun Banega Crorepati", the actress joined Khatoon and Apne Aap founder, Ruchira Gupta here to speak on the issue of sex-trafficking.
She said that through the Yash Raj Films' latest project, she wants to send out a message on the subject that's close to her heart.
"Trafficking is something that we know is happening around us. But we can only sympathise. It was important to do the film which is relevant. It gives strength to people and inspires them," she told reporters here Thursday.
The film has made an impact on a lot of people including men, she said.
"Men have cried watching the film. It's not about men bashing. It's not a crusade against men. It's about going against those who have turned into animals. I know lot of men who support the cause," she added.
Rani also shared that since Hindi movies are released almost in all countries people will become more aware of it and the message will spread wider.
She believes that if more women cops join, the issue can be sorted to some extent.
"If women cops come in the picture, they will fight for the cause stronger. All seats reserved for women cops should be filled," said Rani.
