"Yesterday when I reached Delhi for Ravana Dahan, I felt that I should come to Israel Embassy and meet the people who are defeating today's modern Ravana and terrorists like 'Hamas'. The way small children and women are being targeted is heart-wrenching. I have full hope that Israel will be victorious in this war against terrorism," said the 'Queen' fame actress.
