And the ladies of @princessdiyakumarifoundation have earned this power . I am wearing this saree made by them . This is #PROJECTPRAGATI.

Suman Rao is a strong advocate of women empowerment. In an interview, she had said, “There should be gender equality. Everyone should raise their voice for the cause of women empowerment. It is very necessary now.  I will also talk about this issue whenever I can.”

She had also added, “I have seen how girls struggle. Luckily in my family, my parents gave me complete freedom. But not every other girl gets such freedom in other families. I want to take up the such cases.”

The Miss World Asia 2019 did not hide her aspirations in trying out cinemas. 

“I love cinemas. I would like to work in them.” 

 

Interestingly, Suman has high regards for Deepika Padukone and hopes to model her acting career on the same lines.
