Trust Mallika Sherawat to grab your attention with her unusual antics. While Bollywood stars like Aishwarya Rai, Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor and Kangana Ranaut were making heads turn on the red carpet at the 71st Cannes Film Festival, Mallika was doing the same on the sides.
The Murder actor, who is also the ambassador for an international NGO against human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children, raised awareness about the issue at Cannes with an eye-brow raising stunt. Mallika locked herself up in a small cage at Cannes to bring attention to the NGO Free A Girl’s Lock-Me-Up campaign.
"“It is my ninth year at Cannes and the festival is one of the most cogent platforms to raise the issue of child prostitution not just in India but across the world. Being locked in a cage, I wanted to drive home the imagery of how young girls who are being trafficked are trapped in a small 12x8 foot room. These innocent victims have to live and survive without any aid. There is a woman suffering abuse every minute with no hope of any change. So I thought of doing my bit and raising awareness about an issue which needs to become extinct at the earliest.”" - Mallika Sherawat
