I applaud the government and UNICEF’s stand on protecting the future generations of our country.” The Bollywood actor Ayushman Khuranna said while announcing his collaboration with UNICEF and Ministry of Women and Child Development to voice up against child sexual abuse, PTI reported.
“Ayushmann is heartened that he can now contribute to the cause of building awareness against child sexual abuse. He wants to do his best to help the government to eradicate such crimes.
