When addressing the audience, Gourab Roy, the founder of Avijan Trust, said, “We are honoured to screen India’s Sons in Kolkata as it’s a documentary depicting pain of men who are falsely accused of Rape. It’s been five years since we have been running Avijan Welfare Trust & helping men in West Bengal. We plan to have the organizations presence in every nook and corner of the state in next two years.”
The film’s director, Deepika Narayan Bhardwaj, said “False rape cases are destroying lives across India. If abuse of rape laws is not addressed, there will be a day when it will be called legal terrorism just like IPC 498A and that would be very sad as rape is a heinous crime. I hope people watch this film and raise voice against the menace of false rape accusations.”
