Veteran actor Anupam Kher has worked in countless films over the years. Not only is he a brilliant performer but he has never backed away from championing a cause he truly believes in. Anupam kher has now been appointed as the official ambassador of UN’s He For She campaign. In an official ceremony, Kher was pinned as the He For She ambassador and the actor himself tweeted about it and shared the news. The He For She campaign works towards gender equality through male role models. Bollywood starFarhan Akhtar too has done a lot of work for the initiative in the past.
Talking about the honour, Anupam Kher said, “I come from a family that was very poor, but I was taught by my grandparents that men and women are equal. Domestic violence comes from a deep sentiment of superiority by men. Change for gender equality has to start at home, in the family.” “I pledge to respond to each of my followers who sign up to #HeForShe”
He For She is a worldwide movement that works towards gender equality. It primarily appoints male ambassadors to champion the cause of gender equality.
