Noting how a fellow actor who was recently assaulted in a car has already resumed work, Malayalam film star Prithviraj has penned an inspiring Facebook post on women and their courage to face the challenges thrown at them in life.

Prithviraj and the actor are working together in an upcoming film, Adam.

The Urumi star begins the post by expressing his wonder at the marvel called ‘woman’, and salutes his mother and his wife for the difference they have made in his life. He then moves on to speak of the courage shown by his co-star, who decided to shrug aside the trauma caused by the attack to resume shooting for the movie.

Expounding on the experience, Prithviraj writes: “And today… as my dear friend walks into the sets to kickstart the shooting of her new film ‘Adam’, I once again bear witness to an extraordinary moment of courage from an extraordinary woman in my life! Today… she makes a statement… a statement that will echo through time, space and gender… that no one and no incident has control over your life but YOU! A statement that will now be part of counselling sessions and pep talks across the world. A statement that you, my friend, are making in a million unheard voices!”

He then goes on to confess how he has also mouthed sexist comments in his films, but vows never to do so again. “NEVER AGAIN… never again will I let disrespect for women be celebrated in my movies!”
