Shweta Tripathi Sharma, a prominent entertainment figure, showcased her heartfelt support for acid attack survivors recently.

During this event, Shweta Tripathi Sharma said, "We, as a society, have taken considerable time to discuss this, to shine a light on this crucial subject. Kudos to the entire team of 'Kshitij' for championing a conversation on such an essential topic. We often expect others to be the heroes, but in reality, 'we' must be our own heroes." The panel discussion, of which Shweta was an integral part, emerged as a pivotal platform that paved the way for fostering a healthier society, one that embraces and accepts acid attack survivors.

In a moving gesture, Shweta visited the Sheroes cafe in Lucknow, an establishment entirely managed by acid attack survivors. Sharing her experience, she recounted, "When I was in Lucknow, I was compelled to visit the cafe. We often live in our own bubbles, believing what we are going through is the only reality. Stepping out of that bubble to witness others' experiences is essential. When I revisited Sheroes cafe while researching for Kaalkoot, I had a brief interaction with the survivors. I realized they identified themselves as survivors, whereas I associated them with the term 'victims.' This distinction is crucial. They haven't just survived; they've triumphed over their circumstances and continue to do so daily. We often assume certain things won't happen to us, but it's our responsibility to ensure no one suffers. It's not just our actions that matter, but the impact we have on those around us."

Shweta's recent portrayal of Parul, an acid attack survivor, in Kaalkoot deeply resonated with her. She expressed her appreciation for the role, stating, "I felt grateful. Such roles aren't easy to come by. Parul isn't based on a real individual, but her character is a tribute to the countless girls and boys we encounter."

Shweta wanted to celebrate Raksha Bandhan with acid attack survivors and shared her thoughts on it, saying, "Protection should transcend religious, class, age, and creed boundaries. Being able to protect someone is a beautiful sentiment. This Raksha Bandhan, I aim to focus on safeguarding myself, not only from others, but from my own thoughts too. It starts with adopting positive thinking and healthy habits."

Speaking of her upcoming projects, Shweta offered insights into it by saying, "I'm set to begin shooting for Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhen Season 2. Additionally, there's Mirzapur 3 in the pipeline too."
