Auctions Role for Funds to Limit Crimes

Bollywood film-maker Pooja Bhatt is auctioning off a role in one of her next Hindi-language films to help out increase money to lessen intensifying cases of violence against women in India, the charity Oxfam has said. The chance, organized by Oxfam's partner Scottish Circle, is obtainable to people in Scotland, where the utmost bidder will win the opportunity to star in a film that will be displayed to millions. "I would be pleased to present a role to the maximum bidder in either the film ‘Bad', which would be a talking part or they could win a part in my film ‘Cabaret', where they will get to participate in a sophisticated song sequence complete with color, dancers and the works," Bhatt said in a statement issued by Oxfam. In December 2012, the gang rape and murder of a 23-year-old student in Delhi accepted widespread global coverage as thousands of urban middle class Indians took to the streets to complaint crime against women and girls in the nation In 2009, there were more than 2 million incident of violence against women in India, a 25 percent boost since 2004, Oxfam said, totaling that its research indicates that almost 40 percent of women have been battered by their husbands, though very few women report such incidents to police. Bhatt, 41, whose first film "Tamanna" focused on the contentious issue of female Infanticide in India, has starred in award-winning films such as "Zakhm" and "Border", and produced abundant of films. The statement said Bhatt hopes to tour to Scotland later this year to increase consciousness of gender crimes in India and look at how Scotland talks to domestic abuse. "The money elevated from auctioning the Bollywood role will be used by Oxfam in India to help eliminate aggression against women. The project supports victims to report brutality to end impunity and helps them to become fiscally independent," the statement said.
