Sonam and Fawad opined that it is disheartening to see the
prevalent status of women who are no less than men and also play a
key role in their achievements and hence all must pledge to honour
women as much as their country.
Sonam said, "We are happy to support the cause because
Khoobsurat stands for all the khoobsurat (beautiful)
girls. We don't respect women and girls and it's sad especially
when we call India 'Mother India'. I think girls are equal to men
and I think even better, so it's time that one should start
respecting women like the way they respect the country."
Meanwhile, Pakistani actor Fawad Khan added, "Women not only
play a professional role wonderfully but I think she is the creator
of everything that happens in men's life. Whatever accomplishments
men achieve is because of women and I think no one can match her
strength and courage."
