Sarah Janes Dias poses for the cameras at the event. The actress was seen in the web series ‘Inside Edge’ earlier this year.
Sonakshi came out in style at the event. The event consisted of a contest to recognise the short films based on the theme of gender-based violence.
The two actresses posed with placards, which used hastags like ‘#ActionagainstGBV’, #EndGBV’ and emphasised the need to end violence against women.
Sonakshi poses with this slate which read, “Speak Up. Act Out. Girl Power.” Sexual harassment has come in the forefront even in Bollywood following the allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
At the event, Sonakshi said, "I want to live in a world where we, as women, are able to choose. We have been playing waiting game for the longest time. Women are always waiting to be protected, rescued, for permission, validation, acceptance and approval.”
