Gurmeet Choudhary has decided to launch a self-defence app, dedicated to his female fans. “I’m advocating safety through martial arts. I want to ensure that they take positive steps to protect themselves when caught in tricky situations,” says Gurmeet.

Keeping in mind the rising incidents of crime against women, Gurmeet decided to come up with the idea. “We all know what happened during New Year’s Eve when young girls were mocked at, molested and abused at public places. I was shocked and saddened by the plight of those defenseless young girls,” he says.

Gurmeet recently met a group of young girls and social activists in Hyderabad. “They were aware that I had a fan base of young girls and that I was well-versed in martial arts. They were researching on the topic and looking for various measures to curb the rising crime rate against young girls,” he informs.

The actor also demonstrated some basic self-defense techniques to the young girls which could help them when caught in difficult situations. “I further suggested that we come out with this interactive app, whereby I could demonstrate these techniques, where young girls could easily react if someone tried to grip their hand, hold their neck, attack them from behind or tried to snatch their wallet. They could learn all this sitting in the comfort of their homes. These techniques are taught to every girl in China in their schools, but unfortunately in India, we have no such education. I want all my female fans to avail of it. I want them to stand strong and confident, ready to take on the world,” adds Gurmeet.
