Mumbai Police’s Nirbhaya Squad For Women’s Safety Introduced With Video Directed By Rohit Shetty. Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif Show Support

By  | 

When the Nirbhaya case happened in 2012, it shook the entire country to the core. Parents were rightfully concerned for their daughter’s safety. I remember my family being so nervous about me going anywhere after the dark. I believe the Nirbhaya case was my first encounter with rape as a social evil and something women have to fear. While rape cases in India have escalated, law enforcement has been doing its best to safeguard women. Recently, a Nirbhaya Squad consists of a team of female officials. Celebs such as Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and others have come forth to support the initiative. 

Mumbai police posted a video announcing the launch of the Squad. The video was directed by Rohit Shetty and narrated by the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. The video talks about how the squad will function and that women need to call helpline 103 to summon them in need.

Many Bollywood celebrities supported this initiative including Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Rajkummar Rao and Shahid Kapoor. Amitabh Bachchan posted the video on Twitter too and lauded the initiative.

I really appreciate celebs like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Katrina Kaif among many others who came forward to support the initiative. After everything, the women of this country have to go through because of how unsafe our streets can get, support for a campaign like this is needed to boost the safety of women in India.
