Ayushmann Khurrana and wifey, Tahira Kashyap pledges to empower women rag-pickers this Raksha Bandhan | Hindi Movie News


While Raksha Bandhan is just a few days away, Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana and wife, Tahira Kashyap extended support to a non-profit organization from Delhi that empowers underprivileged and marginalized women to become self-reliant.

The actor’s support will not only help almost 200 women rag pickers but will also feed their creative skills as this year the NGO has taken an initiative to sell handmade Rakhis. All the proceeds of this initiative will contribute to the well being of these underprivileged women.

Talking about this nobel initiative by the NGO, the ‘Bala’ actor shared with ANI, “Tahira and I are deeply and emotionally invested in Gulmeher (the NGO). The organisationis doing outstanding work to support this needy segment of the population in Delhi.”

Considering the ongoing lockdown situation, the actor added saying these women are “at most risk” as their flow of income has been affected to a great extend during these tough times. However, the couple’s support to bring attention to the situation can help to improve their present and calls it the “right direction” to empower women in society.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Ayushman was last seen in a film with Amitabh Bachchan and will be again collaborating with Anubhav Sinha for an upcoming film ‘Anek’.
