India as seen a 44% rise in the cases of sexual assault or abuse against women over the last 5 years. This is the case of crimes that are reported. Most women do not even report the cases after suffering abuse. Indian film and entertainment industry takes a lot of blame for the rape culture and objectifying women but in light of recent shocking incidents of the acid attacks, setting women ablaze and brutal rapes, the Indian film industry is taking the responsibility to educate audiences in creating a society safe for women.
While films like Chhapaak, Thappad, Mardaani in Hindi and Anandi Gopal, Bandishaala and Poshter Girl in Marathi now the torch is shared by television, web series, and music video makers. Pushkar Jog’s upcoming music video Pori Ladhaycha Shik is produced by Goosebumps Entertainment, presented by Pradnya Sumathi Shetty and Prem Jhangiani, is one such step.
