On the special occasion of valentines day, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar were spotted in Bandra at the Lalkaar Concert that aims to empower women. The event is led by Farhan‘s MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination), the Population Foundation of India (PFI), and director Feroz Abbas Khan. At the event, Farhan Akhtar was supported by his rumored girlfriend Shibani Dandekar along with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shankar-Ehsan-Loy, Shaan, and Gaurav Kapur.
The ‘Lalkaar – Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon’ concert impacted lives through its focus on women’s health, family planning, and gender issues through the medium of music. Lalkaar‘s call of the season was for women to enable, empower and transform their lives.
“Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon has shown the true strength of using edutainment to enable change. With Lalkaar, we are not only celebrating women but also welcoming the third season of the show which we hope will continue to inspire many more lives”, said Farhan Akhtar. The show has been able to achieve this success because it tells stories that people can relate to. Music is one such medium – it connects and brings people together. With Lalkaar, we want to use music to entertain and amplify the process of bringing about this change.”
Shaan Also contributed by saying “All the men not only in a house about also in society should respect and honor women around them which will make the society a good place to live. Main Kuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon is a strong message, I think every woman should feel that way from within her self”.
