Following the footsteps of Bollywood actress, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, actor Ali Fazal, who has just completed the shoot of Tigmanshu Dhulia’s magnum opus, Milan Talkies, has joined as the Goodwill Ambassador of Smile Train. Aishwarya who became a part of the organization that conducts free surgeries for children with cleft lips in 2009 recently during an event has said that she is happy to continue making a small contribution in bringing about an effective change for children born with clefts. 
 
Ali, who is an athlete himself, has helped young kids from Shillong and Lucknow learn more tricks in football and got them ready for the games. The actor has become a global face after his Hollywood debut, Victoria and Abdul became a massive hit. Post the success of his film and receiving worldwide fame, Ali decided to pay it forward by coming together with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to support the children with cleft lips gain their confidence and smiles back. 
 
 
The Fukrey actor in a statement said that “If you Google cleft surgery, you’ll understand the depth and body of work this initiative alone has put into this awareness. It is a correctable surgery. And I am so proud to be the new ambassador for this wonderful cause. In India, over 35,000 children are born with a cleft in a year. And this can be treated if they have the information. The organisation has tied up with many hospitals over the years. I hope to keep this machinery working as it has been with immaculate efficiency and power. There are a great many issues to be solved on many humanitarian levels. This is one. And when we all do our bits and our parts, the world is a better place.” 
For the uninitiated, a cleft is a gap or split in the upper lip and/or roof of the mouth. When certain body parts and structures do not fuse together during fetal development, this leads to the occurrence of a cleft.
 
 
On the work front, apart from Milan Talkies, Ali Fazal will be next seen in Sanjay Dutt’s Productions's next, Hindi remake of the Telugu film Prasthanam. The movie will also have Sanjay Dutt and Manisha Koirala too, who will be seen on the big screen after 10 years.

Vrinda Rai should be the smile ambassador. She always gives condescending annoyed looks.

Jaya Bachchan should be the smile ambassador.

Does anyone know what or how much she's done as an ambassador for any organization or UN?!...because I haven't heard about her doing much despite being an ambassador for years.. pv why aren't you posting my comment?!..

Love you Aishwarya and all others involved in making a difference for issues that matter
