That's not okay with me because I have not done anything in my life where I am not involved. I can't imagine the fact that I am being dishonest on some level that someone else is pretending to be me”, she added. She is busy with Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
‘I promise with every ounce of my heart, soul and body to protect you (adopted daughter Nisha) from everything and everyone who is evil in this world. Even if that means giving my life for your safety. A child should feel safe against evil and hurtful people. Let’s hold our children a little closer to us’

Theron quits US over racism
Actress Charlize Theron says she has considered leaving the US for the sake of her adopted African-American children due to increased concerns over ‘racism’.
“I don't even know how to talk about the past year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive than people thought,” says Theron.
The actress also shared that due to the current political and social climate in the country, she wants to ensure her African-American children, ages six and two, to feel safe.
“There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn't take it. I wouldn't travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that's really problematic,” she said.
“There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I'm like, if this continues, I might have to (leave America).” Theron grew up during the country's apartheid era.
