Delhi. Yesterday Rani visited victims and survivors of
trafficking, women who were at risk of prostitution. She went to
the office of anti trafficking NGO, Apne Aap Women Worldwide and
asked people to join the Apne Aap campaign ‘Cool Men Don't Buy
Speaking to media personnel, the actress said, "I was always
sensitive towards this issue but after doing this film, I have got
more attached and emotional towards the cause of fighting against
human trafficking. Today, when I interacted with the girls here, I
was extremely touched when they said that they also want to do
something big in life and they too want to be a ‘Mardaani' like me.
I am happy that my film has touched the right chord. And I appeal
to all the journalists to take the issue forward."
Rani also feels that enlisting more women in police will help
eliminate sex trafficking and can bring down the crime rate in
India. The 36-year-old actress said, "I feel if women cops cops
come into the picture they will fight against human trafficking
strongly because they will feel for this cause more." She recently
even accompanied one of them, Fatima Khatoon to the season 8 of the
Kaun Banega Crorepati TV show.

cases against traffickers.
