Taapsee has a written a mail to her school and college requesting them to start  course in self defence

 Taapsee Pannu was last seen playing a role of spy in Naam Shabana wrote a letter to her school Mata Jai Kaur Public School in Ashok Vihar, Delhi and to her college, Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology in New Delhi. She has requested them to introduce self defense coaching classes for young girls and women. She also requested to start   martial arts classes soon in their premises so that at an early age girls in school learn to empower themselves through self defence. She has ensured them that whatever help is required for this initiative will be provided by her.  

 Says Tapsee, “I think with the given situation we are in it's important to empower girls from a young age and I feel self defence as a concept has nothing to do with someone's sex. One should be strong and should be able to learn how to tackle a situation should it arise where their security is being threatened. I think a change always starts with small steps and for me that was to reach out to my school and request and assist them to begin a course for self defence for students from a young age. The idea isn't to just let them learn how to combat but also understand the importance of self security and know when to utilize their self defence knowledge.”

Her principal shared her letter with management. And In fact they are introducing self defence and karate in the school and for this they have already enrolled a professional who will coach them in the upcoming vacation.
