The demise of Amanat, the 23 year old Delhi gang rape victim, has come as a rude shock for everyone in the country and it’s also being seen as a wake up call to amend laws for women’s safety. The Telugu film fraternity too expressed their anger over the death of the woman who has also been addressed as Nirbhaya and Damini in the media. While many celebrities have called for capital punishment for the culprits, several others opined that the core problem lies in how men treat women.
