Kajol was seen making an impeccable performance in a recently released short-film, Devi starring along with actresses like Neha Dhupia, Shruti Haasan, Neena Kulkarni among others. The film has been receiving great response from the critics and the audience as well.
The film revolves around the psychological impact of rape, sexual assault, physical and mental abuse. Stretching over 13-minute-long the film reflects the plight of the women when it comes to her security.
In a recent interaction with SpotboyE, Kajol along with producer Ryan Ivan Stephen talked about their representation about the current scenario of rape victims, domestic violence and more.
Kajol revealed that that the entire cast of the film worked for free and none of them charged any fee for the project.
There are small steps everyone is taking every day. I would like to see the situation as half glass full, instead of half empty. In this film too, we all came together because we all believed in it. No one has charged a penny for it.
However, during the film's promotions, Kajol spoke at length about her idea of feminism and how one should handle a scenario of voicing discomfort/anger/repulsion in a 'sensible' manner. The actress stated that misogyny could not be combatted with a sense of fanaticism, as then society will "accuse you of being hysterical or PMS-ing. You have a lot of people who are screaming, crying, going on to TV and howling (about what happened to them)."
She continued her justification by complaining about the people who are making a furore about the 'trivialities' that they've experienced since "it's not rape."
