Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has stressed on the need to fight against disrespect towards women by lending support to a television serial that portrays an ordinary girl's resolve to reclaim her respect.
Titled Mann Ki Awaaz-Pratigya, the show was given a head start by Kangana, who pledged to do away with mediocrity and stand for her respect and dignity.
"With Pratigya, we aim to bring alive an icon whose journey is one that women can relate to, identify with and be inspired by. Breaking stereotypes, we have created a protagonist who is not a victim but a reformer," Sanjay Gupta, COO, Star India, said in a statement.
Co-produced by Walkwater Media Limited and Spell Bound Production, Pratigya stars Pooja Gaur in the lead.
To be telecast from December 7, the show will be aired five days a week.
