Popular ‘Khani’ actress Sana Javed encouraged the women to stay strong and spoke up against harassment.
During in an interview she said, “As a media personality, I feel it is my responsibility to take roles that portray strong women because we have a fan following. Women want to become like the characters they see on the screen. When Khaani came out so many women told me over social media that the character was inspirational and set an example for how strong a woman can be and I truly felt like I had achieved something.”
Sana is currently working on a project that revolves around workplace harassment.“It was hurtful shooting for this because I would keep thinking about girls in similar positions. Women can’t talk about it so the message I want to give with this serial is to speak up. It takes so much courage to speak about these issues,” she said.
The Romeo Weds Heer star revealed that “The girl’s brother is a feminist in it,” she said quickly adding that she means a guy who supports women and takes a stand for their rights. “He’s not the type to just think about society and it’s important to give men role models where they are shown how to be supportive instead of just watching women fight alone,” she stated.
“I’ve been thinking about what I would want to see as a viewer and I don’t see much of it today which is why I think I’m going to eventually start producing. Television is the right platform to give a message out, so I want to do something for television,” she said.
