Akshay Kumar is known for imparting self-defence training to young girls but this time, it is Taapsee Pannu who wants to empower women to take action against molesters every time they are in a sticky situation. In a video shared by Akshay Kumar, Taapsee says, “There is nothing as precious as a woman. We do we face molestation at every place, be it road, park or train. People touch us inappropriately and say whatever they have to. What do we do?” She adds that she fails to understand why women are so weak that anyone can do anything to them.
Wednesday the world will celebrate International Women’s Day, but that’s means nothing in a country where domestic violence, rape is a regular occurrence. Actors Taapsee Pannu and Akshay Kumar released a video on social media on Monday.
“Now, we won’t stay quiet,” she says. The actor, who will be seen kicking some backside and packing some punches in her upcoming film Naam Shabana, throws light on why molestation takes place. The actor says, “When we are groped, we freeze. Our minds stop working. And that’s the moment when they take advantage. It’s this moment when we need to understand the weapons god has given to us. Scream, or hit them with a stone, run, do something. You can kick or hit them by the elbow. Do it. If you would, no one would dare to come back.” To teach women how to do it, Taapsee called on Akshay Kumar. She showed her self defence move on the star, which she calls koni maar (hit with your elbow).
