Just like picking up good content for his films, Ayushmann Khurrana now wanted to be a part of the good initiative as well and hence, the Article 15 actor has been now roped in by UNICEF to fight against child sexual abuse, according to Latestly. Here, Ayushmann will make people aware of this protection and the legal support by the ministry and the key initiative of this ministry is the POCSO act. (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act) This act aims to offer protection against child sexual abuse.

He also talked about POCSO being a hugely important step that is taken by the ministry to make people aware of the protection and legal support that the act offers against child sexual abuse.
