The actor expresses his gratitude for being a National Ambassador for UNICEF India. And he states that he has interacted with children and talked with them about cyberbullying, gender equality, mental health, and other topics. He speaks passionately about issues faced by children. Moreover, he pledges to continue to be a strong voice for children’s rights.
In September 2020, Ayushmann Khurrana was appointed as the celebrity advocate. And the prime focus was to advocate for broadening the child rights agenda and ending violence against children. His participation in World Children’s Day, International Day of the Girl Child, International Women’s Day, etc. received public attention.
This is a big news for the actor and his fans. And we hope his support will be extended to the children.
