Welcoming Ayushman Khurrana as a celebrity advocate for children’s rights, Dr. Yasmin Ali Haque,UNICEF Representative in India said, “I am delighted to welcome Ayushmann Khurrana as a UNICEF celebrity advocate."

"He’s an actor who challenges the boundary of every role he plays.

"He will bring a sensitivity, passion and a powerful voice for every child, with a specific focus towards ending violence against children.

"Ayushmann’s support will help increase awareness about this important issue, especially now with Covid-19 heightening the risk of violence and abuse against children due to the extended lockdown and the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic,” Dr. Yasmin Ali Haque said.

Ayushmann Khurrana said, “I am very pleased to partner with UNICEF as a celebrity advocate."

"I believe that everyone deserves the best start in life.

"As I watch my children play in the safety and happiness of our home, I think about all the children who never get to experience a safe childhood and grow up with violence at home or outside.

"With UNICEF, I look forward to supporting rights of the most vulnerable children, so that they grow up as happier, healthier, educated citizens in nurturing environments free from violence," the actor said.
