While celebrities like throwing a bash or taking a vacation on their birthdays, Sherlyn decided to be different as she celebrated her birthday in 'special' company. The model turned actress was at Kamathipura, Mumbai's oldest and Asia's 2nd largest red light district. Sherlyn feels that sex workers are considered an 'outcast' by the society which is prejudicial. Hence she wanted to make them feel special and decided to spend her birthday moments with them.
Sherlyn opted for a cake with a special message that read 'celebrating womanhood' as it is the essence of her birthday. Sherlyn decided to visit the sex workers as they hold a special place in her heart as she in her own words was 'one of them'. It was during her stay in Los Angeles in July last year that there was a phenomenal shift in her level of consciousness.
While Bollywood has been to Kamathipura several times for movie shoots, no one has been thoughtful to spend personal time with sex workers. Meena (name changed) was very excited about the fact that Sherlyn chose to celebrate the occasion with the ladies of Kamathipura. Proper care was taken to respect the privacy of the sex workers, hence media was not invited for coverage and Sherlyn was just assisted by Kreative Access Media team. Sherlyn is known to live her life by her rules and the distinctive way in which she celebrated her birthday makes her bold and beautiful.
