August 03 : The festival of Raksha Bandhan is observed to celebrate the special bond between brothers and sisters, and actor Ayushmann Khurrana has an interesting thought to share with everyone.
Actor Ayushmann who is known for his poetic skills penned down a poem on the need to make the world more secure for sisters. The poem spoke about making the world so secure for women that they do not have to depend on their brothers to feel protected.
Khurrana took to his social media profile, he captioned it, "Ek aisa samaaj banayein jahaan ladkiyo ko surakshit mehsoos karne ke liye apne bhaaiyo ki zaroorat na ho, eik rivaayat ke taur pe rakhi bandhne ke liye mard ki kalaaio ki zaroorat na ho," he wrote.
Ayushmann's wish that all Indians should actively work towards creating a society, in which a girl does not have to depend on her brother for her protection or to feel safe in public.
He also wished that Rakhi, as a custom, will change into becoming a symbol of progressiveness that will hopefully see a girl not just needing a man's hand to tie the totem of love on this day.
Khurrana was recently seen in the comedy-drama Gulabo Sitabo, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film was unable to be released theatrically and instead streamed on Prime Video.
