Taapsee has shot for a video which highlights society’s harsh norms for women

 Taapsee Pannu has been promoting her film Naam Shabana these days. The actress plays spy in the action film and have trained in Mixed Martial Arts for action sequences. After success of Pink the actress has once again seen talking about how self defence is important for girls in the new video Unblushed Taapsee HitBack for Culture Machine.

 The video shows many women who are seen apologising for wearing a short skirt, for having a drink, for a night out, for walking home alone and everything else that they do for the fear of upsetting the societal norms. Just then, Taapsee Pannu walks in and tells us that they aren’t apologising to society; they are apologising to themselves, to their bodies.

 Taapsee says, “ It is high time we learnt to fight with these men, it’s high time we started living our life in our way. This video is an awakening call to all the young girls and women out there who treat self-defence as a hobby, as a summer sport. Self Defense is no long just an option, it’s a necessity, and a must-have skill for every woman. When team Blush approached me for this video, it was almost immediately that I said yes. It's time for us to be responsible for our own safety and learn to protect ourselves. The video resonates with me and I am glad to be a part of something so powerful, something I hope every woman will understand and act upon.”
