Home CATEGORIES Agriculture & Rural Development Kangana Ranaut donates 1 lakh rupees to Aamir Khan’s Paani foundation
Kangana Ranaut has always been a vocal and responsible star. The Bollywood diva has established herself as a symbol of resilience against the patriarchy ingrained in the industry.
Last year, after the devastating floods that shook Kerala, Kangana had donated to those who had been affected. She had said, “I want to urge to people of this country that in whichever capacity they can, they should contribute, even a small amount will make a difference to Kerala. To my people there, I want to say, the whole nation is praying for them and supports them. We feel their pain and sense of loss. And by the grace of God, they will be soon back to their glory.”
Recently, the actress and her sister donated INR 1 lakh to Aamir Khan’s Paani foundation, which is spearheading the campaign Jalmitra.
Kangana’s sister Rangoli took to Twitter to share this piece of information. Rangoli wrote: “Kangana donated 1 lakh and I donated 1 thousand to jalmitra.org please donate whatever you can to help our farmers, it’s not charity, we have been unfair to them for way too long. India got independence but still cruel British laws and policies weren’t changed to favour our farmers, we eat because of them, on this earth day let’s show our gratitude to “Dhartiputras” our dear farmers.”
Organised by Aamir and Kiran Rao’s NGO – Paani Foundation – the ‘Jalmitra’ campaign was started on World Water Day (March 22) last year as part of the Satyamev Jayate Water Cup initiative.
After the release of her film Manikarnika, the star released a statement saying that women are already empowered but its time that people stop suppressing them.
“We don’t need to empower them, they are powerful, and they are the very reason why humanity and human race exists. How can we empower them? We just don’t need to suppress them, that’s all… we need to recognise their subtle, sophisticated and superior strength and respect that.” Amen to that!
