Mumbai, Mar 8 (IANS): Television actor Pearl V. Puri revealed an interesting side of his persona on Monday, on the occasion of International Women’s Day. The actor claimed he used to stand outside his coaching class for hours with friends just to nab eveteasers red-handed!
“As a kid, my friends and I used to stand outside our coaching classes to see if any guy is teasing a girl. We used to stand there for three to four hours, just to make sure if any guy teases a girl, we teach him a lesson,” said Pearl.
The “Bepanah Pyaar” actor goes on to say that the mindset of people won’t change unless law allows harsher punishments for crimes against women, including death penalty and life imprisonment.
“The law of our country is undoubtedly doing a great duty, yet I feel it needs further strict rules to change the mentality of a man. Crimes such as rape or molestation deserve death penalty and so does harassment. Dowry, too, deserves imprisonment for life. Only then these will the demons learn their lessons and think a 100 times before harming a woman,” informed the actor.
Pearl appears in the second season of Ekta Kapoor’s supernatural drama show “Brahmarakshas”.
