'All women should refrain from going outside after the daylight dies,' said the actress 

National Film Award-winning actor Anjana Sultana made headlines when she asked women to stay home after dusk, during a press briefing held by Bangladesh Film Artistes' Association. 

In a recent interview with Prothom Alo, she doubled down on her previous remarks and repeatedly asked all women to refrain from going outside after the daylight dies down.

"Of course I said what I said. Even when a woman has to go outside after evening, she should take a friend or relative with her. I am not asking women to quit their jobs, I am just telling them to avoid going outside at night," she told the outlet.



"There was a time in our neighbouring country India when I could go outside in the evening and do my shopping during the vacations. Those days are gone. Women aren’t safe anywhere.

"Women who are bankers, teachers or garments workers, they obviously don't need to work at night," the actor continued. "Even if they need to go outside, they must take their friends with them."



Anjana Sultana bagged the National Film Award for Best Actress for her role in the 1986 film "Parineeta."

She is best known for films such as "Doshshu Bonhur," "Matir Maya," "Ashikkhito" and others.
