Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana, who featured in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People Of 2020 list, opened up about male child’s proper brought up.
Ayushmann recently opened up about being appointed as UNICEF’s Celebrity Advocate for their global campaign EVAC (Ending Violence Against Children).
“As a UNICEF celebrity advocate, my role is to further children’s rights, to support UNICEF in advocating for these rights using my voice and my influence,” he said during an interview.
“One of the major issues I am supporting is ending violence against children, to advocate that violence against children is unacceptable, and it is preventable,” he added.
The actor further reacted to the Hatharas and Balrampur case, claiming that there was a pressing need in society for men to be raised in a better way.
“Shocked, shattered and devastated. After Hathras, now another gangrape and murder at Balrampur! It’s barbaric, inhuman and calls for the most severe punishment to the guilty. When will this stop? We are failing every single day to protect the women of our country. Have to do more than just protecting women. We have to raise better sons,” he said.
On the other hand, Ayushmann made his first Bollywood debut with Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor.
Later, he went on to act in successful films such as Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Bareilly Ki Barfi, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan, Andhadhun, Badhaai Ho, Article 15, Dream Girl and Bala.
Lastly, he worked in Amazon Prime’s dramedy Gulabo Sitabo alongside Amitabh Bachchan.
