On the occasion of International Sex Workers' Day, on 2nd June. Actress Mahika Sharma who has been a part of shows like 'F.I.R' and ‘Ramayana' reveals about facing challenges after her friendship with adult star Danny D got viral. 'It was quite a challenging phase in my life. When people assumed me to be a sex worker just because I'm a friend to Danny D. They started assaulting and discriminate against me without having a fact check. For a society, it is very easy to dishonour a girl. With a lot happening in my life, I tried to stay strong and collect all the pain and emotions to compare how miserable a life a sex worker must be surviving. Then, I took a stand to create some awareness and welfare for them.'
The actress known for featuring in television shows like Ramayana and Tu Mere Agal Bagal Hai, says it must help them to quit the profession and educate them. "As the day honours and recognises the exploited working conditions of sex workers. Sometimes people don't behave properly with sex workers and they face violence too. Therefore, it is important to create awareness on respecting them. I wish to bring prostitution to end. All of us need to help to bring them out of this profession. And now when porn is ban in our country. Still, there are a number of adult films are been released here with local artists on a different digital network, which is sad. We need to do something about it," she said.
