    Sanjay Dutt is associated with many causes and now he has become the brand ambassador for the NGO Save The Children an organisation founded by late Vipula Kadri, mother of Mana (Suniel) Shetty 25 years ago.

    Sanjay says, “I love children and the work that Save The Children is doing is wonderful.
    Suniel and Mana are my family.

    When they asked me to become the brand ambassador for Save The Children, I didn"t hesitate.

    If by lending my name to a cause if I can help make the lives of these children better by even one per cent, then I am willing."

    Dream work

    suniel shetty adds, “Save The Children was my mother-in-law"s dream and today her children, Mana, Rahul and Isha are fulfilling it with their spouses supporting them. Sanju was one of mom"s (Vipula) favourite sons and who better than him to become the face of Save The Children.

    It"s a Rs 1 concept by Pantaloon in Big Bazaar where every Rs 1 that a customer gives away will make a difference to the children of the foundation.

    For every Rs 1 given by the customer Kishore Biyani will give Rs 1 too. Sanju has lent his name and face to the cause and will request people to give them one rupee. Your Rs 1 could make a big difference to the children of lesser Gods."

    Bachcha log

    Sunil adds that Sanjay loves children and was willing to do the campaign. “When we asked him he immediately gave three hours out of his busy schedule to shoot the ad. Mana gave the presentation to him and he agreed. I was never involved."

    Mana Shetty adds, “Save The Children has 255 children and is a special educational center for special kids. We also have a Save Our Sisters campaign that gives vocational training to girls who have been sex workers to rehabilitate them in society and the Balwadi programme, which with the help of the BMC, tutors primary school children from slums."
