Bollywood actress Twinkle Khanna has taken an initiative to promote women empowerment. Her campaign has gained recognition in fewer days.

Malala Yousafzai talks with Twinkle on women empowerment in an interview with Tweek India. Twinkle, host of Tweek India, shared the video of the interview and wrote, “Tweak turns one today and to kick off the celebrations we have the wonderful @malala with us. This was a surreal day. It was meant to be an audio interview that turned into a video.”

During the session, Malala shared her views on how she handles her fame. She said, “Becoming well known at a very young age was challenging. I did not have anyone to guide me and I had to learn everything myself. I was not like, you know, a TV celebrity. So like even the fame and support I got was different. It was like Malala you are an inspiration for us. So for me, it was like thank you so much for supporting me and for standing up with me.”

“For me, fun means spending time with friends whether that is going out to a restaurant and having lunch together or going to watch a movie. There are many societies in Oxford so I sometimes go to the cricket club and have played for my college as well.”

In addition to this, the noble prize holder Malala also talked about the time when she used to get death threats. “It was announced on the FM radio by the Taliban spokesperson that from the 15th January 2009, no girl can go out and go to school. I was 11 and all the schools were shut down because they didn’t believe in women’s rights. For a woman not to be able to get an education means that she is more vulnerable to get married early. She is more vulnerable to be a victim of domestic violence and many things. So for me, a life that way was the worst thing that you can imagine. That’s why I started speaking for my rights and girls in Swat Valley.”
