I am very happy to be here today. We are talking about women empowerment and I have seen here Richa, Radhika, Rituparna ans they all are doing much better work than I am and I feel extremely honoured to be in the same platform as they are all so incredible. This was a very important film, a real story about a 23 year old girl. There is a saying “When you don’t know what’s the right thing to do, you know what’s the loving thing to do” and in this case she did the most compassionate thing. I have to thank the Bhanots, her mother who passed away just before the release of the film, Ram for giving me this opportunity and Bling , Fox, the producers. Thank you so much IIFM for having me here.
