Actor Sonam Kapoor believes that educating girls about their bodies is equivalent to empowering them to feel more confident about taking care of themselves.
“When we educate girls about their bodies and its changes, we empower them to not only take care of themselves but also feel more confident in doing so. When we embolden the youth of our communities, we create a positive change for the future,” Sonam said in a statement.
Kapoor was recently in Mumbai to support the accomplishments of the She’s Ambassador programme by PVR Nest and Mumbai Obstetrics & Gynaecological Society (MOGS) which emphasises on promoting quality healthcare inclusive of education and safe practices amongst young girls, enabling them to build resilient communities ensuring a life of dignity for all.
“She’s Ambassador initiative has not only empowered but inspired these young girls and made them self-aware, confident, equipping them to take full charge of their own development and become a role model for thousand others,” she added. The initiative was also supported by producer-author-entrepreneur Twinkle Khanna and politician Priya Dutt.
The programme included knowledge sessions, new age counselling sessions with multi-sectored influencers, film-making workshops and project-based learning on nutrition and fitness, menstrual health and hygiene, communicable and non-communicable diseases, sanitation and cleanliness and mental health and well-being.
Sonam’s upcoming film on menstrual hygiene, PadMan, is all set to release on February 2.
After that she will be seen in Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic on renowned actor Sanjay Dutt. The makers shared a special video on Twitter to announce the completion of the film. Hirani, along with actors Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor posted a picture on Twitter, with the caption, “It’s a wrap. Dutt biopic shoot done.”
However, one thing that has caught the attention of everyone is the supposed title of the movie, imprinted on the t-shirts of the cast and crew ‘Dutt’s The Way’. Many believe that this will be the title of the much-awaited biopic. If this is indeed true, it doesn’t quite go with the controversial and serious film that the project is touted to be. However, those who have watched the initial parts of the film say that it isn’t an out and out serious film and has many comic scenes.

A leading daily quoted a source as saying, “The film is unexpectedly hilarious and people are going to be shocked. They will be laughing, especially when they find out the truth about Sanju’s younger days.” Ranbir, who plays Sanjay’s character, is also seen popping the champagne, whereas Sonam took to her social media page, sharing the happy moments while marking the last day of the shoot.
