Actress Rashi Mal feels rejecting someone on the basis of their caste is wrong. She feels the issue should be addressed through cinema.
“Rejecting someone on the basis of their caste, in your personal or professional life, is simply denying yourself the opportunity to find a person best suited for you or for the job,” Rashi said in a statement.
The actress became a part of an episode of Love on the Run which dealt with the issue of inter-caste marriage.
“Caste has no place when it comes to love or merit. This is a very important and relevant story especially in the wake of the recent Dalit protests. It is important that such stories be told because cinema/art is always the harbinger for change,” she added.
“It has the ability to make people think and influence the decisions they make in life.”
The show is aired on MTV.
