NEW DELHI: Going by the recent spate of incidents in the capital city over the past two weeks, it is but natural that Bollywood steps in to promote safety for women on the roads in India. In this connection, an event was organised in New Delhi, to mark the National Road Safety Week. And who better than to grace the event, than North-Indian actress and Bollywood style diva Kangna Ranaut
Post the horrific gang rape of a 23 year old physiotherapy student in New Delhi in December 2012, the entire country has been up in arms trying to get justice for the murdered victim. More so, people are campaigning to ensure that the Government ensures safety for women, especially on public roads and transport.
Bollywood actress Kangna was seen at the event on Tuesday, doing her bit to promote road safety and safety for women on Indian streets. The stunning young actress campaigned for safety of women on roads, and the prevention of the occurrence of tinted glasses on vehicles.
Dressed in a simple but elegant top and jeans, with reading glasses perched on her stately nose bridge, Kangna even removed the tint off several cars, to reduce the instance of crimes against women. The drive took place outside India Gate, where a bulk of protests have been staged in the past.
Kangna was her concerned citizen self as she urged Delhiites and other city motorists to remove tinted glasses and curtains from their vehicles. She passionately appealed to the citizenry, “Whether it is celebrities or actors or VIPs, they are no different; and if any such rule gives comfort and security to the females of our country then we all should come forward and accept it.”
We hope that Kangna’s message does not fall on deaf ears, and that people are strongly motivated to heed her advice.
