Take a look at what Ayushmann Khurrana said on National Youth Day

Ayushmann Khurrana, a young icon and Bollywood star, aims to create positive, constructive changes in society with his progressive, conversation-starting entertainers. Ayushmann, voted one of TIME Magazine’s most influential people, was recently appointed as UNICEF’s Celebrity Advocate for EVAC (Ending Violence Against Children). Towards curbing violence against children, Ayushmann has a special message for National Youth Day.

As he puts it, “The National Youth Day is yet another opportunity for all of us to commit ourselves to one important issue. As we begin this year, lets join hands to end violence against children everywhere. Violence , as we know affects children everywhere and in all aspects of their lives. Many young people today may have faced violence as children.”

Additionally, he says, “I want to reiterate that violence and bullying in all its forms is unacceptable. We must build a culture of tolerance and respect and ensure that our homes, schools and social networks are safe places for children. As UNICEF’s celebrity advocate for ending violence against children, I hope that together, we can make a difference.”

As part of UNICEF’s agenda for the year, Ayushmann outlines UNICEF’s plans for India’s youth. He states, “UNICEF works towards ensuring the rights of all children, everywhere, including their right to physical and mental well-being. This is even more important in the context of COVID-19, when the impact of the pandemic has made more children vulnerable to violence and exploitation, including in the online environment.”

Moreover, he says, “We can only achieve positive change once we recognise the problem, speak about it and put our heads together to fight it. Raising our collective voices and taking action against violence is crucial. As UNICEF’s celebrity advocate, my goal is to reach out to as many people as I can, both children and parents with this message.”

He goes on to say, “On that note, I wish you all a very happy new year. Please remember to follow all precautions in order to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe from COVID-19.”
