Actress Sonakshi Sinha feels that women have been playing the “waiting game” for the longest time as they are always waiting for permissions, validation, acceptance and approval.

“I want to live in a world where we, as women, are able to choose. We have been playing the waiting game for the longest time. Women are always waiting to be protected, rescued, for permission, validation, acceptance and approval,” Sonakshi said recently.

“We live in a country where we worship Goddess Laxmi, Saraswati, Kali and Durga but we eliminate girl child before she sees the world. I don’t want to live in a world like that and honestly, an initiative to end gender-based violence is a commendable effort,” she added.

Sonakshi, who has portrayed strong female characters in films like Akira, Force 2 and Noor, says that being an actor gives her the means to make a difference.

“I am a part of the Hindi film industry, and being an actor gives me a voice, and perspective gives me ways and means to make a difference.”

“Being here, I am really happy that so many people have taken the effort to make these short films and showcasing there films over here. Through this medium, we can reach out to so many people across the world and create some sort of awareness.”
