The Viral Statement

In an interview with The Quint, actress Kajol was sharing her views on women empowerment and why changes in India is slow. About that Kajol stated, “Change especially in our country like India is slow. It is very, very slow, because we are steeped in our traditions and thought processes.” She continued saying, “It has do with education. You have political leaders who do not have an educational system background.” The actress further stated, “You are being ruled by leaders, so many of them, who do not have that viewpoint, which I think education does give you at least the chance to look out for a different viewpoint.” Watch video below from 4.35th minute: The Trial: Kajol Opens Up About Her OTT Debut, Says 'Script Will Always Be My Hero’.
