Aishwarya Rai Aishwarya Rai has been invited by a German university to speak on issues of domestic violence, marital abuse and women empowerment.

She’s one of the happiest married actresses in Bollywood, but issues of oppression against women are close to her heart. Aishwarya Rai, who played a battered housewife in Provoked , has now been invited along with director Jagmohan Mundhra to speak about domestic abuse at Mainz University in the German Federal State of Rhineland.

At an event to be held from July 15-17, Ash is expected to fly to Germany with Mundhra to speak about women's rights, domestic violence and her personal experience of depicting it in the film ‘Provoked’. The director of the film will also speak about similar issues.




Incidentally, the film has also been invited to the Norway Film Festival and Mundhra wants Ash and the film’s other actors to accompany him there as well.

‘Provoked’ was based on a real story of a Punjabi woman who was repeatedly beaten and abused by her husband in London, until one day, she set him on fire and was imprisoned under a murder charge. Her fight for justice and her quest for a renewed life is the crux of the remaining story.
