TV actors stress financial independence for women

Mumbai, May 6: Actors like Priyanshu Jora, Aasif Sheikh and Ankit Gera feel women should have financial independence as it is the first step towards equality. “The idea that a husband is expected to buy anything for his wife needs to end, because that’s exactly where all the problem starts. We hide the male ego and superiority under the carpet called love! Financial dependence makes women continue in unstable marriages,” said Priyanshu in a statement to IANS.  “They need money to survive, and if they are dependent on someone for survival, how can they be free to make their choices? They would always be in debt – financially, emotionally and psychologically. Financial independence is very important. It’s the first step towards equality,” added Priyanshu. Sachin Shroff, currently essaying the role of Nanda Maharaj in &TV show “Paramavatar Shri Krishna”, says it is fantastic for a woman to be financially independent. (IANS)
