Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana is empowering women ragpickers in New Delhi this Raksha Bandhan. Ayushmann and Tahira have for years supported this non-profit organisation, Gulmeher, that looks to make such women self-reliant by fuelling their inner passion in arts and crafts. It is a women’s collective of waste-pickers turned artisans. The NGO works with about 200 women ragpickers and this contribution will help them look after themselves and their families.

The women of Gulmeher have taken it upon themselves to make and sell Rakhis, proceeds of which will go towards their well-being and sustenance. Ayushmann has lent his support again to the cause and is trying to bring in as much attention for them.

*The Article 15 actor shares,* “Tahira and I are deeply and emotionally invested in Gulmeher. The organisation is doing outstanding work to support this needy segment of population in Delhi. With the pandemic, they are most at risk and are also economically vulnerable. Their flow of income has been impacted greatly.”

He further adds *”Rakhi symbolises love and a bond between brothers and sisters. Them making rakhis for the fellow citizens of our country to buy and support their cause symbolises a celebration of self-reliance. Let’s support our fellow brothers and sisters. We want to empower them so that they can have various avenues to generate income & support their families. We feel that’s a step in the right direction.”

I think his world, his stories are just so inspiring and so different yet so real at the same time. It stirs some emotion in you that compels you to take some action or it provokes a thought or it provokes some sort of action within yourself in terms of how you want to live ahead, what choices you make and what your thoughts should kind of be.

Adding furthermore she said, “The stories that he dwells in are very thought provoking and I always felt that doing something with him would kind of change me as an artist and as a person and I just really wanted to work with him. It was one of those bucket list things that I have to do a film with him and I have to be part of his world and his cinema. It was bottom right, downright that greed of mine that my career has to have a film with him and an experience with him actually. I am really really glad and thankful that I got a chance to do that – that also on a platform and in a film like this where for the first time is making a light-hearted fun film which is not so serious and not so dark. It is a light-hearted humour film but it’s still at the end of the day provokes the same sort of action or the thought in a person which his other cinema would. So deep down inside he says something with his work and his films and I am really glad and blessed to be a part of this with him.”

Nushrratt has shown remarkable growth in her career graph with every character that she has played. With Chhalaang she will be seen acing her Haryanvi accent and in a simple North Indian girl. Fans are already loving the refreshing and vibrant chemistry of Nushrratt with Rajkumar Rao.
