Need stricter laws for crimes against women: Gauahar Khan

IANS  |  Kolkata 

Actress Gauahar Khan believes violence against women will continue if the central and the judiciary don't formulate stricter laws.

"...if the and the law do not make stricter rules for the kind of crimes that are happening against women, we can keep talking... but it's going to continue if we don't make stricter rules", she said during the announcement of the Indian Fashion League here.

The "Begum Jaan" actress was asked about her views on the position of women in India.

"Begum Jaan" is an adaptation of Bengali film "Rajkahini", helmed by Srijit Mukherji. It released on April 14, and has spurred a debate on discrimination against women.

Gauahar Khan said women are more vocal now but the scenario and mindset of a section of people need to change.

Asked for her take on fashion, she said fashion for her is subjective and style is personal.

Batting for comfort, Gauahar Khan said: "I will not wear something just because it's trending or looks good on someone else" -- be it even casuals like jeans and T-shirts.

"You could be the best fashion designer in the world but if it does not suit my body type and I'm not convinced about how it looks on me, I will not wear it."
