According to a study, more than 10 million girls have been killed by their parents either before or after they were born in India. In this gloomy scenario surrounding girl child, very few girls attend schools. Approximately, 70 per cent of girls between the age of 6 and 10 years attend school since it is considered less important to educate and empower girl child in our country.
Lilavati hospital in Mumbai came up with a campaign of nobel cause, 'save and empower the girl child.' They started it in 11th April 2012, and an event was recently held at Mumbai. A number of Bollywood celebrities showed their support to the cause. Well known choreographer and singer Shiamak Davar troop was also seen performing at the event.
Several other stunning Bollywood divas walked on the ramp for the special fashion show held by Manish Malhotra to support the cause. Bollywood actresses who walked the ramp included Malika Arora, Preity Zinta, Isha Koppikar, Lara Dutta, Mandira Bedi and the gorgeous Madhuri Dixit, who was the show stopper of the evening.
Actress Isha Koppikar talked about the show and said, “I really appreciate the efforts made by Leelavati hospital and I am also a total feminist at heart and believe that after god, the entire ability to procreate has been given to a woman and she is the creator after god.”
