“Instead of depending on the society or the system or government, it is important how much effort we take for ourselves,” the 33-year-old said here at a programme organised for women empowerment.
“I think it’s important to get rid of that fear that ‘if I say something, this might be the reaction’, or ‘my family will be put down’. So if we all come out together, out of these boundaries, a change will be seen soon,” she added.
The actress, seen in films like “Pyaasa”, “Love In Japan” and “Memsahab – Lost In A Mirage”, feels it’s important for a woman to support another woman.
“We should not let go of even the smaller things. We should stand and speak for ourselves. Besides, the most important thing is a woman’s support to a woman. And it’s not just women, in fact, many men, fathers, brothers and friends among the country folk have lent their support and this is very encouraging,” Yukta said.
