Shabana Azmi on a panel of talk show to speak on women’s issues

Shabana Azmi is known for her campaigns to aid women’s empowerment in India. And that will also be the thread of her conversation on the very first episode of international journalist Tim Sebastian’s upcoming talk show.

For the show’s first topic of discussion India is no place for women, the veteran actress appeared on its panel. The makers of the show Vikas Gulati and Smruti Shinde say,

We were keen to have Shabana since she has done a lot of work at the grassroot level for improving the plight of women.

Apart from Shabana, the panel will also include social and political activist Aruna Roy, Shoma Chaudhary of Tehelka fame and advocate Flavia Agnes. “All the guests are celebrities in their own rights. So convincing them to appear on the show was a tough task for us.
