Our source reveals, “In a unique way to ensure that she does her very best to support as many as causes for woman safety and empowerment, Taapsee will be attending four events being held in different cities. She will start off in Hyderabad to flag off a women police marathon and will soon after fly off to New Delhi to deliver a talk on importance of self defence. After that, she will head to Pune to confer awards to women who have done incredible work in several walks of life and will sum it up in Mumbai at a charitable event where she would be seen spending time with women who have survived violence.”
