The actress disclosed to HVP recently that her foundation is on the verge of commencing the production of its very first movie that will dwell on rape. According to her, “I am going to be releasing two films before the end of this year. The films will deal on the subjects of corruption and rape.”
Uru said as an actress, the medium of tube will provide her the needful platform to discuss extensively the subjects rape and corruption in our society. “That’s why I’m speaking through the medium of film. One of the subjects affected me in a way because it happened to someone I used to know. That’s why I’m passionate about it. It’s something that somenone suffers daily in silence. And I think it needs to be brought to light,” she echoed.
