‘I Became Courageous After Running Away From Home And Leaving Parents’ Says Bollywood’s Sex Symbol

The boldest and sexiest Mallika Sherawat who made people raised their eyebrows with her films like Murder and Khwaish has revealed something. In order to empower women of all ages, actress Mallika Sherawat shared that how running away from the home and leaving her parents made her strong.  She faced “innumerable hardships” as she belonged to a “patriarchal family.”

She recalled her struggling days on Twitter as she hailed the Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss review pleas filed by three of the four convicts in the Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case. This is what she wrote,

“Six years after she was brutally gang-raped in a moving bus in the capital city of India, we finally laid her memory to rest. She had worked hard to free herself from the shackles of roles that society often slots for its women.”

Mallika Sherawat (born Reema Lamba on 24 October 1976) hails from a small village in Hisar district of Haryana, later went on to reveal that how she became so strong to take a stand for herself. She wrote,

“For me, it was running away from the home that gave me courage. Stifled in a patriarchal family, I neither had freedom nor choice. I faced innumerable hardships because I dared to question and challenge the status quo. When I got a choice, I ran as fast as my legs could carry me. And, I survived. Today I stand on my own two feet and I decide how I live my life. It’s not easy. I have been called enough names and treated in myriad ways. But as I travel across India and the world, I realize it’s not easy for too many of us. Buried under societal pressure, scared of the consequences, subjugated and constantly violated are millions of women and girls who want to be free.”

She further told about defying all the odds set for women, she wrote,

“I want to help make them free. Every young girl, every woman has dreams. Every woman who is empowered can empower another. We can, each one of us, free one another. I want to free every girl from fear. Let there be no one who fears becoming another victim. Let us fight to create a society where women live with pride and not with worry. Let us battle the odds to build a world where girls and women live unshackled.”

She ended her note by writing,

“Free a girl. Free every girl.”

To let you know, Sherawat has established herself as a sex symbol and as one of the most popular celebrities in Bollywood.  She then appeared in some Hollywood films too.
