Shabana has always been vocal about a lot of issues.
The actress also welcomed the Supreme Court’s ruling on triple talaq last week, saying the judgment is a victory for brave Muslim women in India.
She is also an activist and runs the NGO Mijwan Welfare Society. The foundation was started by Kaifi Azmi, her father.
The NGO was launched with the goal of creating employment opportunities for women and reviving the art of chikankari embroidery.
