Kunal Kapoor has given a powerful performance on women trafficking which will force you to think twice about it. Calling it a topic that no one addresses, Kunal Kapoor urged people to contribute towards this cause. The actor’s poem is perfect for these times when forced women trafficking is a huge concern in the society. Kunal made this video along with Ketto, an online crowdfunding platform and website in India for fundraising for social, charity, movies, music, personal and creative causes.
The actor tweeted, “I feel very strongly about this cause, and have recorded a video with UnErase Poetry. Please watch, share, support”.
In the over three-minute video, Kunal is seen taking charge of the microphone and narrating stories of a 16-year-old girl who went missing and a bride.
He spoke in English and Hindi about the road where “love is sold”. While talking about “the road”, he urged people to slow down their car, take a moment and smile at those women in “shiny saris and make-up so wild” to show that you care. The video ends with statistics revealing that every three minutes an Indian girl is trafficked into sexual slavery, and only one per cent of these girls are ever rescued.
He has already received support from celebs like Hrithik Roshan, who got “teared up”, Shruti Seth and Dia Mirza. Hrithik Roshan thanked Kunal for bringing to notice such an issue. He tweeted:
