“Trafficking is something that we know is happening around us. But we can only sympathise. It was important to do a film which is relevant. It gives strength to people and inspires them,” Rani told reporters.
The film has made an impact on a lot of people including men, she said.
“Men have cried watching the film. It’s not about men bashing. It’s not a crusade against men. It’s about going against those who have turned into animals. I know a lot of men who support the cause,” she added. Rani is confident the film will have a wider reach.
“If women cops come in the picture, they will fight for the cause stronger. All seats reserved for women cops should be filled,” said Rani.
