Sangam is a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative to protect the future of girl child. Sonam Kapoor and Fawad Khan expressed their views during the mascot launch of the campaign.
Sonam and Fawad opined that it is disheartening to see the prevalent status of women who are no less than men and also play a key role in their achievements and hence all must pledge to honour women as much as their country.
Sonam said, "We are happy to support the cause because Khoobsurat stands for all the khoobsurat (beautiful) girls. We don't respect women and girls and it's sad especially when we call India 'Mother India'. I think girls are equal to men and I think even better, so it's time that one should start respecting women like the way they respect the country."
Meanwhile, Pakistani actor Fawad Khan added, "Women not only play a professional role wonderfully but I think she is the creator of everything that happens in men's life. Whatever accomplishments men achieve is because of women and I think no one can match her strength and courage."
