New Delhi: Actress Swara Bhaskar, on International Women's Day on Wednesday, advised women to be shameless and selfish.
"In a developing society, why isn't the traditional mindset sparing us? Be shameless and free of the burden of these values. Be selfish now onwards," she said.
She was speaking at the Delhi Commission for Women Annual Awards that honoured her for being vocal about her views on women issues.
"The values in the society still remain different for boys and girls. We women are told to suppress our wishes and dreams," she said.
"Don't burden yourself with any such values anymore. Be free! Don't think about how people will react, if you do so. That'll be great for the whole society," she added.
