Veteran actress Pooja Bhatt is quite active on Twitter and never shies away from speaking about the issues. Recently the Hathras r*pe incident shook the country and the actress has been regularly speaking up about it.
Pooja Bhatt recently took to Twitter and talked about how people shouldn’t misuse the word r*pe. According to Pooja when the word is used by people out of context, it ‘deflects from the horror of all that r*pe signifies’.
“The term ‘r*pe/r*ped’ used loosely as a description & in context to acts that are not related to s*xual assault must stop. It deflects from the horror of all that r*pe signifies-physically,emotionally and mentally,” Pooja Bhatt tweeted.
