Chitrangada Singh's next film based on sexual politics at work place is up for release. And to talk about women's issues, Chitra headed to a school in Khar and chatted with school students about learning self-defence.

A source close to the actress says, “She has decided not to sit back and become a mute spectator. Since people consider actors to be role models, she thought it was her duty to spread awareness on the matter. She also told the kids how to differentiate between a ‘good’ and a ‘bad’ touch.”

Chitra apparently also inspected the health and toilet facilities in the school. The actress says, “It was sad to know that most school drop-outs take place around fifth standard due to the non availability of proper toilets. However, it was encouraging to know how these students as well as the teachers continue to study and teach, thanks to their indomitable spirit.”
