Bollywood actor Kunal Kapoor addressed the issue of women trafficking through a powerful poem at Tuning Forks in Mumbai. The actor raised his voice against trafficking and sex slavery in India through a poem titled ‘Sold Bodies’. The poem talks about lecherous men, sex workers, their children and array of things attached to it. While it voices against forced prostitution, #SoldBodies also talk about a different side of the red light street. Written by Mohammed Sadriwala, Navaldeep Singh, and Simar Singh the poem shows how we easily judge the women on those streets by their heavy makeup and bright sarees but not her plight that forced her into the profession.
The video sheds light on a woman’s restraints that make her sell her body to a stranger. It says how the woman could be compassionate mother wanting a better future for her child. According to the video ‘Every 3 minutes, an Indian girl is trafficked into sexual slavery while only one percent of these girls are ever rescued.’ Kunal Kapoor excited about ‘angry, anti-hero’ role
