"As a woman and a mother, I'm extremely fearful about this social menace from nameless, faceless criminals who are underage and don't look one bit like criminals. We all need to be extremely vigilant to tackle this issue and save our daughters and families who are at high risk," she added.

Directed by Gopi Puthran, "Mardaani 2" focuses on the rise in violent crimes by juveniles in India and has definitely sparked a conversation on the threat this poses to young girls.
