Filmmaker Sheila Sandhu’s short film “Acceptance” — based on parenthood — has received support from NGO Women Empowerment Association.

The NGO aims to empower women and give them liberty to live with respect and dignity.

“Acceptance and love are all that is required for caring and adopting. This message has been beautifully conveyed through ‘Acceptance’ by Sheila Sandhu, who truly believes in selflessly serving society,” Archana Mohan Sharma, President of the NGO, said in a statement.

Sandhu, who earlier produced Seema Biswas-starrer short film “Holding Back” and made her directorial debut with “Acceptance”, said: “It is overwhelming to get support from such people. Archanaji has been living a social life.

“She is on a mission to eradicate cervical cancer and till date has donated more than 30,000 free sanitary towels to under privileged girls and women in rural and urban areas and is creating awareness on importance of menstrual hygiene.”
