Actress Richa Chadha is keen to hold screenings of her forthcoming film "Love Sonia" in small towns across the country to create awareness on sex trafficking.
She believes that in order to eradicate the practice of flesh trade, it is extremely important to educate the masses at the grassroot level.
Richa said in a statement: "Cinema still lacks access to a vast audience and 'Love Sonia' and its theme matters. It's time girls should be aware from a young age of a dark reality that exists.
"Education is a must for girls. So upon the film's release, I plan on showing it to girls in smaller towns and conducting screenings to help create a wider awareness and begin a conversation."
Directed by Tabrez Noorani, "Love Sonia" follows a young girl who gets sucked into the ugly world of sex trafficking and the global flesh trade.
Starring Mrunal Thakur in the lead, the film also brings Manoj Bajpayee, Freida Pinto, Rajkummar Rao, Adil Hussain, Anupam Kher and Sai Tamhankar apart from Richa playing pivotal characters.
The film is releasing on September 14.
