"Some people and molesters have a sick mentality. Police are doing their best to protect us but how much would they do? Women should be self-reliant and carry a knife when they are in crowd," the actress told reporters when her opinion was sought against the backdrop of recent assaults on women and gang-rapes in the metropolis.
    
The 38-year-old actor was speaking on the sidelines of a programme organized by the city police to create awareness among the Ganesh mandals about the safety and security of women during the ten-day Ganesh festival which is starting from Monday.
    
"We are reading in newspapers about such incidents (assaults on women). I am just fed up and sometimes I feel what kind of society we are living in," she said.
    
The actor thanked the policemen for their good work. "The job of policemen is extremely difficult and they are doing it in an extraordinary way. Entire load should not be put on the shoulders of policemen during the Ganesh festival. You become a responsible citizen and if you find anything unclaimed at any pandal, kindly inform the police," the actor appealed.
