India is much more than rape cases: Iulia Vantur

Romanian model-actress Iulia Vantur, who is making her Hindi film debut with “Radha Kyun Gori Main Kyun Kaala”, has says India as a country has a lot to offer and that the rising number of crimes against women in the nation is not what defines it.

Iulia was interacting with the media here at the poster launch of the film along with its director Prem R. Soni, producers Prerna Arora, Kashish Khan and Arjun N Kapoor and chief guest Raveena Tandon on Monday.

“Radha Kyon Gori Main Kyon Kaala” deals with the rape of a foreigner who visits India to know and understand Indian culture.

Since such incidents have happened in real life, asked if Iulia ever had reservations about visiting India due to this reason, she said: “I was fascinated about India and its culture. I was really connected to it so, my love for India and its culture was much bigger than all these cases because India is much more than that.

“These kind of cases are happening all over the world and unfortunately, in India they are happening more but that doesn’t define a nation. We don’t have to be scared of that. We have to fight against it by taking appropriate actions and this movie is also about taking action, doing something about it and not letting this kind of unfortunate incidents change your life completely.

“I think India has so much to offer. There are so many passionate and kind people in this country and I feel they can really change the scenario.”
