Lara Dutta fights the social issue of human trafficking. She is the brand ambassador for MTV EXIT, (End Exploitation, and Trafficking). She was asked to talk about trafficking and now features in the documentary called SOLD which deals with human trafficking.
“I was previously working on female infanticide with the UNFPA and trafficking of brides. It is after the approach from MTV that I explored further into the details of human trafficking" says Lara. On asking about trafficking in the film industry, she says, “There are a lot of people who come from far of places with the desire to become actors, but it"s not the only field where trafficking takes place. There should be agencies that give the right guidance to aspiring actors."
“Being a celebrity I can reach a larger audience and I am glad I can use my status to promote this social cause and reach people" states Lara.
