Mumbai: Veteran actress Daisy Irani, last seen in Bela Sehgal`s ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’, feels strongly about the Delhi gang-rape case that is making headlines, and says the rapists should be severely punished.
"Nah, that`s (killing the rapists) much too quick and simple. I think castration is the only solution for such people who are all over the place. It`s the jungle mentality at work. Such savage behaviour can`t be curbed by normal modes of punishment," said Daisy.
"Castrate rapists. Let them feel as helpless as the victim each time these rapist go out," she added
Daisy feels women are not safe in any city.
"Why just Delhi? Anywhere in India we have a rampant sexual deprivation. We have all these 13-14 years old domestic helpers, who behave themselves in your house but head to watch porn with their friends when you aren`t looking. What kind of thoughts do they have? Today an average 11-year-old is completely sexually aware," she said.
And gender prejudice is not restricted to sexual subjugation, feels Daisy, it is also prevalent in the work place, considering she has no acting offers in spite of being appreciated in ‘Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi’.
"I know people want to see me on screen. Even I want to see myself on screen. But there are no roles for a women, who are of a certain age and who are not of a particular weight," she added.
