Pooja Bhatt: I got a porn star accepted into the mainstream
The 41-year-old actress-director is upset with yet another rape case of five-year-old girl in Delhi.

Mumbai: Pooja Bhatt says many feel that she doesn't have any right to show concern over safety of women because she introduced Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone into Bollywood.

Sunny made it to headlines with her stint on TV reality show 'Bigg Boss 5' and was later cast in Pooja's directorial project 'Jism 2'.

The 41-year-old is upset with yet another rape case of five-year-old girl in Delhi and tweeted: "This is not a world to bring more children into. This is certainly not a nation to bring more daughters into. Violence is their destiny."

She also pointed out many feel that she has no right to talk about the issue.

"Each time I speak up about rape or sexual abuse, some 'saint' tells me that I have no right to since I introduced a 'porn star' to Bollywood," Bhatt posted on Twitter.

"I humanized a 'porn star' and got her accepted into the mainstream. The rest of Bollywood is now free to objectify her like they do most women," she added.
