As a part of the Indian government's Swachh Bharat initiative, Anushka will bring to focus the toilet hygiene and safety of women with 'Darwaza Band' - a national campaign encouraging everyone to build toilets in their homes, especially keeping women's health in mind.
Shares Anushka, "I was immediately drawn by the aims and objectives of 'Swachh Bharat Mission' and 'Darwaza Band'. The message focuses on a very important issue of our country. I am grateful to have been chosen to shoulder this responsibility."
Anushka further adds, "Women actually get sexually assaulted when they go to defecate in the open and suffer humiliation. It also poses huge health and safety risks because for the menfolk, building toilets is not important. They (women) must be protected from this hazard."
