Ranbir Kapoor To Fight For Girl Child Rights Along with Shabana Azmi
Actor Ranbir Kapoor will join hands with Shabana Azmi in her fight to restore the rights of the girl child. He will be the young face supporting the fight.
Shabana Azmi who is from Mijwan which is a village in Uttar Pradesh’s Azamgarh has been supporting the rights of the girl child and now Ranbir will also fight for this noble cause.
The actor said, "My parents always treated my sister Ridhima and me equally. In fact, my sister always got preferential treatment. That's the way it should be in every household. I want the girl child to be given a little more attention than the son. And I want to work towards creating that awareness."
It is reported by sources that Ranbir was moved when he met a girl child from Mijwan. The girl is just 10 years old and named Surekha.
Shabana said, "Bringing little Surekha who had never been out if Mijwan to Mumbai to meet her benefactors from the film industry was a wise move. It gave a face to the movement. It specially moved Ranbir who has now agreed to be the youth leader in the village of Mijwan."
