Ali Fazal talks about domestic violence and gender equality: We need to support the survivors

Ali Fazal has often raised his voice for meaningful social issues and recently, he has spoken about domestic violence. Earlier last month, he had also worked on a short film with Nandita Das addressing the issue.

Domestic violence has been a growing issue during the lockdown. The increasing number of cases was one of the reasons for shooting the film. In fact, as it turns out, it was shot entirely during the lockdown. Meanwhile, Ali Fazal, Amruta Subhash, Sandesh Kulkarni, and Swanand Kirkire have lent their voices to the video.

Check out the video here:

Meanwhile, talking about the subject, he had quite a few words to say. Ali Fazal said, “Domestic violence is agnostic to class, religion and other such societal barriers. This was an important message for people to come forward and destigmatize the issue. For a systematic shift to happen, we need to support the survivors of domestic violence to speak up and create a safe environment for them.

On the work front, Ali Fazal will soon be seen in Mirzapur season 2 and was also seen in a music video rather recently. In fact, the lockdown played spoilsport for the actor’s marriage to Richa Chadha.

The couple was supposed to tie the knot in April 2020, however, they had to delay their plans. In fact, they also did their first-ever magazine shoot as a couple for Brides Today and it came out a couple of weeks ago.

Meanwhile, the lockdown has also been a hard time for the actor as his mother passed away. She left for the heavenly abode on June 17 due to health complications. Ali Fazal had taken to social media to send his prayers and remember his mother.

He wrote, “I’ll live the rest of yours for you. Miss you Amma. Yahi tak thhaa humaara, pata nahi kyun. You were the source of my creativity. My everything. Aagey alfaaz nahi rahe. Love, Ali.”
