Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra, who was recently in the capital to promote a campaign called Girl Rising, said female actors don't only have cat fights but come together for causes they believe in.
The Girl Rising: Engage India program will work to raise awareness and change attitudes and behaviors relating to the education of girls through local language releases of the powerful feature film titled Girl Rising.
"I think the kind of women got involved in this film and the international actors, who have been part of this, really gave Girl Rising film a voice. And, I am very proud to be a part of Girl Rising and bringing this film to India," the 32-year old actress said.
"In India, nine actresses will be telling the stories of these nine girls. Freida Pinto will be part of it, I am a part of it, and the beauty of it was, it just took one phone call from me. I called my colleagues and all of them said yes. They didn't even hesitate once that it?s for another girl. Thus, proving a point that female actors don't only have cat fights; we come together for causes we believe in," Chopra added.
The United States Agency for International Development has announced USD 3 million as fund to support the program worldwide.
