Speaking to BBC, Pinto said that the real issue was not rape. "It is about changing mindsets. And the only way you can change mindsets is by showing people what you are up against in the first place," Pinto said.

"That is what the documentary does. It is a documentary, it is not fabricated, these are facts. We are not making them up," said Pinto.

Pinto said that the ban should be lifted. "The ban should be lifted and it must be left to the people whether they want to watch it or not," she added.

Meanwhile, Streep at the screening of the movie addressed the gathering and said: "For days after the incident she was nameless, she was known as India's Daughter. Tonight she is our daughter too."
