Taapsee Pannu encourages women to learn self-defence
Actress Taapsee Pannu, known for playing powerful characters in films like “Baby”, “Pink” and in her forthcoming “Naam Shabana”, says women should take responsibility for their own safety and learn the act of self-defence.
The actress also features in Culture Machine’s latest video in the Unblushed series on Blush channel titled “Unblushed Taapsee| #HitBack”, where she talks about how it is important for girls to be unapologetic about how they dress up and the lifestyle they lead.
“It’s time for us to be responsible for our own safety and learn to protect ourselves. The video resonates with me and I am glad to be a part of something so powerful, something I hope every woman will understand and act upon,” Tapsee said in a statement. She also believes that women possess great power in form of strength and vulnerability.
“Though we do not have as much muscle power as of a man, god has compensated that with our strong sixth sense. If you are facing physical abuse, instead of thinking like a victim, use your presence of mind to deal with the situation. That’s all that matter — power of mind, more than body,” Taapsee told IANS.
