Mallika Sherawat to lock herself in cage to raise awareness about forced child prostitution!

Bollywood actress Mallika Sherawat has been attending the Cannes Film Festival for nine years now and has always managed to turn heads with her clothing choices on the red carpet. This year, she is attending the film festival to raise awareness about forced child prostitution and trafficking.
 
Mallika locked herself in a cage as part of the campaign. She is representing NGO ‘Free a Girl’ at the film festival. About the campaign, Mallika revealed, “It is my ninth year at Cannes and the festival is one of the most cogent platforms to raise the issue of child prostitution not just in India but across the world. Being locked in a cage, I wanted to drive home the imagery of how young girls who are being trafficked are trapped in a small 12x8 foot room. These innocent victims have to live and survive without any aid. There is a woman suffering abuse every minute with no hope of any change. So I thought of doing my bit and raising awareness about an issue which needs to become extinct at the earliest.”
 
She had told in a statement previously, “It is so important in today’s world to raise awareness about this issue. It is 2018 and we are still grappling with child prostitution all around the world. There are so many children trapped in this racket. It is necessary to create awareness about what is happening with women all over the world. I believe Cannes is a significant platform to raise this issue.”
