Mumbai: Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji will be honoured with a National award for her contribution to the cause of women’s safety and child trafficking in her film ‘Mardaani’, on Tuesday in Delhi.

According to reports the actress was selected by a panel of experts for the ‘Best Representation of the Cause of Safety, Security and Protection of Women and Girl Child’ at an event organised by the Institute of Gender Justice to celebrate Women’s Day.

 

According to DNA, the letter addressed to Rani states, “In the role of Shivani Shivaji Roy in the film Mardaani, you epitomise the spirit of the countless involved in this long fight against human trafficking. That for you to be associated with a movie addressing such an important and urgent cause attracts the attention of the viewing public and focuses their attention on this pertinent issue. The role so naturally played by you of an empowered and courageous police officer has given the correct message, and the promotional clip that aired on the TV channels to promote the movie also correctly urged people to watch the movie with their entire family, since human trafficking is an issue that every man, woman and child should be aware of and this awareness is our best tool in this fight.”
