The press conference was organised to announce a seminar that would discuss the issue of child sexual abuse and how the issue was being handled with individuals or NGOs working on it. Many NGOs, who were working for this cause, also came together and discussed the issue.

Kalki, who was last seen in ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’, spoke on how important it is to address the issue as many kids suffer silently and the abuse permanently scars their minds.

 “I strongly believe education, and in particular sexual education and support groups not only for children but for their parents, is a very important step needed to be taken by the state and independent organisations,” she said during a recent interview.

This was not the first time that Kalki stood up for a noble cause. In September 2013, she featured in a video called ‘It's Your Fault’ for ‘Anti-Rape Campaign’ along with VJ Juhi Pandey. The video went viral on Internet with over 150,000 views in just two days.
