    According to Hindustan Times, Ayushmann talked about why he felt the need to be part of the initiative. "As a socially-conscious citizen, I want to spread the word on matters that need urgent attention.

    He added, "Crimes against children are the most heinous. I applaud the government and UNICEF's stand on protecting the future generations of our country."

    Hindustan Times quoted a Hindi film industry insider as saying, "Ayushmann has shot a video on the topic, requesting people to be more vigilant about such cruel offences happening around us and immediately raise voice against such disgraceful crime by reporting it to the concerned authorities."
