Tamil actress and DMK politician Khusboo Sundar,recently asked women to empower themselves before asking for womens empowerment in Parliament or Assembly. Why speak of womens empowerment? Kerala is 100 per cent literate. But how many women are career-oriented? Quite surprisingly,not many, the 41-year-old actor said while addressing management students in Kochi on April 10.
Women should come out of the shell they have created and need to fight for their rights within themselves. We need to realise that we are the biggest force. We need to empower ourselves before asking for womens empowerment in Parliament and assemblies, she added.
On big corporates,including Reliance and UTV,entering the film industry,she said that we need to be passionate about filmmaking. But making films is not about making money. You have to be passionate about filmmaking. I think it makes it less problematic or easier for us to reach out to people. We have done many awareness camps. For me,being an actor or celebrity help to get entry into politics. That itself is not enough as hard work is needed to carry forward the journey, she said. She also advised women entrepreneurs not to lose their self-respect and integrity.
