Actor Ayushmann Khurrana has been voted one of the “World’s Most Influential People” by TIME magazine for championing inclusivity through his choice of films.

Today, on the World Day Against Child Labor, Ayushmann is setting the agenda for the eradication of child labor in our country.

“Children belong in schools, not in workshops, factories, agricultural fields or as servants” – Ayushmann Khurrana speaks out on World Day Against Child Labor

Ayushmann says, “Children belong in schools and playgrounds, not in workshops, factories, agricultural fields or as servants. Child labor violates their rights and robs them of their education, growth and opportunities. It also makes them vulnerable to injury, exploitation and abuse.

He adds, “Children who have the opportunity to attend school regularly have better earning potential in the future, which helps break the intergenerational cycle of poverty. Each of us has a role to play in ending child labour. We can take action to end child labor in our businesses, homes and communities.“

Ayushmann believes that children at risk must be protected at all costs. He says, “Help vulnerable children and their families access education and social protection programmes. Raise awareness of the lasting negative impact of child labour. Call CHILDLINE 1098 if you see a child working or any other child in distress.

Work-wise, Ayushmann will next be seen in two very interesting projects this year – Anubhuti Kashyap’s Doctor G and filmmaker Aanand L. Rai’s Action Hero directed by rookie Anirudh Iyer.
