Mumbai, April 26: Actress Mallika Sherawat has expressed her displeasure over increasing number of rape cases in India. She has said that from the land of Mahatma Gandhi, the country had become a land of gang rapists.
Mallika was interacting with the media at the special screening of "Daas Dev" on Wednesday here.
Mallika said: "I think what's happening with women and children of this country is absolutely shameful.
"From the land of Gandhi, we have become a land of gang rapists and I think it's the media in the country that is really a strong force today. So all hopes are pinned on the media.
"If it's not in the media, then nobody would know about these cases. I think because of pressure from the media, these new laws have been enforced. So we are really thankful to the media for this," she added.
