In a silent video, Bollywood actor Kriti Sanon underlines the fact that women need much more than hollow words on one day to create a safer space where all the genders are equal.

Celebrating women, their achievements and strengths on one particular day — March 8 — is easy, but how many among us actually respect and value these in our daily lives?

Not many, if the stats are anything to go by. Our streets remain unsafe for women. So, while most Bollywood actors promote the cause of women empowerment in the same old humdrum manner, Kriti Sanon does it with a note of near-resignation.

In a silent video she posted on Instagram, Kriti holds placards that say: “It’s Women’s Day. Or, same s***..different year. We will hear a lot of words today: Girl power, Women’s rights, Gender quality, Blah, Blah..Meanwhile, our streets are still unsafe. Glass ceilings remain rock solid. And others still decide what we should wear. All we do is talk, and I am done talking. Happy whatever.”

Kriti made her Bollywood debut opposite Tiger Shroff in Heropanti and later worked with Shah Rukh Khan and Varun Dhawan in Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale. She is currently working on Raabta, where she is paired with Sushant Singh Rajput.
