Mumbai April 15 (IANS) Film director Sujoy Ghosh faced flak for making "Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh" -- a story about a six-year-old getting sexually abused by her uncle -- but says recent incidents prove how it s reality.
"After Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh I was told off by a lot of people. Why did you make this film? Who in their right mind would abuse a six-year-old? But that s what happens in this world " Ghosh tweeted on Sunday.

"We need to wake up and protect our children. because if we don t no one else will " he added.
The minor s body was recovered from Rassana forest in Kathua on January 17 a week after she went missing while grazing horses in the forest area. She was held captive inside a temple and was sedated before being raped and murdered.
