Earlier, Ayushmann Khurrana, who was recognised by UNICEF as their Celebrity Advocate for the global campaign Ending Violence Against Children (EVAC), has urged fans to take initiative in breaking the stereotypes so that a girl can truly get equal access as a boy. “Each of us has the responsibility of making gender-based discrimination a thing of the past and ensuring that every girl is regarded by families and communities with the same value and worth than any boy. This National Girl Child Day let’s start by breaking the gender stereotypes in our personal lives. Small actions count and contribute towards positive change in the long run,” he added.
