Actress Shriya Saran of Sivaji and Azhagia Tamil Magan fame has batted for the cause of women.
Speaking at the India Today South Conclave in Chennai, she said, “We talk about making women-centric films all the time. So many men go to watch these films, come out and still tease women.”
“Strict action against ill-treatment of women is one way to bring change. When will we realise that justice delayed is justice denied.”
“We don’t take how women are treated seriously. Incidents against women continue to happen because those who are booked come out on bail easily. And they do it again and again.”
In her address, Tamannah said, “My experience of working in Baahubali has made me brave. It has given me killer instincts to protect myself. As women, it’s important how we learn to protect ourselves.”
She added: “I like how Akshay Kumar has trained a lot of women in martial arts. Men should come together and teach women around them the art of self-defence.”
