On Friday, the actor posted a video on Instagram in which Dr Yasmin Ali Haque, UNICEF Representative in India welcomed Khurrana as a celebrity advocate for children’s rights. “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. And now he is here to challenge all of us to do more to ensure every child has a safe and bright future,” Dr Haque said.
Khurrana along with UNICEF is looking forward to supporting “the rights of the most vulnerable children so that they grow up as happier, healthier, educated citizens in nurturing environments free from violence.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, the actor has been roped in for Abhishek Kapoor’s next. He will be playing the role of a cross-functional athlete in this untitled film opposite Vaani Kapoor.
