Actor Mallika Sherawat says it is important to break the silence in many countries about child prostitution and the need to prosecute the offenders.
The 40-year-old actress was recently invited to Amsterdam by the Dutch organisation — Free A Girl — to visit their headquarters and talk about the issue of sexual exploitation of children and human trafficking.
“It is important to break the silence in many countries about child prostitution and the need to prosecute the offenders. Now it’s time for action,” Mallika said in a statement.
The 40-year-old actor also features in a documentary “Free a Girl”, which was shot extensively here.
“I believe that there is a need to change the conversation, to mobilise society to rally behind the girls that have fallen victim to this crime, and to demand justice,” she added.
Recently, Mallika was tear gassed and beaten up by three masked men in her Paris apartment block. After the incident, the actor posted a message on Instagram which read, “It takes more than 3 masked men to take me down, I am a strong woman.”

According to a report in a newspaper, Sherawat was ‘attacked by criminals who wore scarves across their faces and without saying a word, sprayed their victims with tear gas before punching them.’ However, according to the sources of French news agency, AFP, the robbers fled without taking anything, further mystifying the investigators.
Earlier, the TV star Kim Kardashian was attacked and robbed at gunpoint of jewellery worth millions of pounds on October 3.
