From what these celebrities do in their personal lives to the kind of causes they support, everything they do is a source of inspiration. Here’s taking a look at the different causes our favourite celebrities promote not just on the screen, but in real life as well!

1. Shabana Azmi

While Shabana Azmi may have been one of the most talented actresses of her time, the star has used all her years of fandom to promote gender equality and reduce discrimination against the girl child. In the year 1989, Azmi walked for four days from Meerut to Delhi for promoting communal harmony. By being made the brand ambassador of SAARC Goodwill Ambassadors, Shabana Azmi has constantly worked to not only empower the girl child, but also to reduce the stigma around HIV/AIDS.

2. Abhay Deol

For a while now, Abhay Deol has been one of the most vocal actors in the Bollywood industry. Calling out the things he considered the norm and expected from people, Abhay Deol has always called people out for all the things that are wrong in the industry. From slamming people who endorse fairness products, to letting people know it is okay to be natural and true to yourself, Abhay Deol has ensured time and time again the standards of beauty according to the world of Bollywood aren’t followed by people. In fact, a while ago, the actor went on a serious rant on social media and spoke about all the multiple evils which advertisements promote, especially when it comes to denouncing beauty in its natural forms.

3. Priyanka Chopra 

An internationally loved and nationally acclaimed actress, Priyanka Chopra has never shied away from making her point known or felt. Apart from being part of various campaigns and charities, PC is also the brand ambassador of NDTV’s Greenathon (a non governmental organisation [NGO] which supports the betterment of the rural world.) From being the Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF, to collaborating with various social media organisations and to advocating health, safety and education being the birthright of girls, Priyanka Chopra always stands for every cause in which she believes. As an actress with a presence not just in India but all over the world, PC has turned fame around to her favour, ensuring that when she talks, people sit up and listen!

4. Rahul Bose

A man who stands apart from the conventional stream of actors, Rahul Bose became famous not just for his acting skills, but for his social work as well. Apart from being the first Indian celebrities to become the face of Oxfam Global in 2007, he was also among the first few to start his own NGO called the Foundation. Created for improving the lives and educating the children in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Bose’s foundation has become an inspirational one to many others. A true fighter for creating a better tomorrow, Rahul Bose has also been a part of Akshara Centre, Breakthrough, Citizens of Justice and Peace and the Teach for India movement. A vocal supporter of the Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao movement, Bose dedicated the massive fan following he has to improve the condition of girls all over the Country!

5. Kalki Koechlin

Time and time again, Kalki Koechlin has been a strong advocator of equal rights, prevention of gender violence and educating the girl child. Partnering with V.J. Pandey, Kalki worked on a satirical video called “It’s Your Fault,” where the two took a different stance on how a rape victim feels and the kind of trauma the survivor goes through. Using all platforms available to her, Kalki makes sure her voice is heard time and time again, ensuring people stand up and take notice of what she has to say. In fact, Kalki used the India Today Conclave (2017) to perform a one woman show about abuse against women.

6. Nandita Das

An actor and director, Nandita Das has more than one credit to her name. From the kind of films she picks, to the kinds of stories she writes and directs, a number of Nandita’s choices (both on the personal and professional front) have been towards improving the society. From creating Leapfrog (an advertising agency which makes socially relevant films,) to being the forebringer of change with the kind of movies she makes (Water and Earth, to name a few,) Nandita Das is a true inspiration.

7. Dia Mirza

Dia Mirza is perhaps one of the most socially active and forward actresses in the Bollywood world. By being the face of a host of organizations (PETA, CRY and the NDTV Greenathon,) Dia Mirza makes sure everything she does is to help improve the world around her. Not only that, she also adopted two cheetah cubs at the Prince of Wales Zoological Park in Lucknow! Appointed as the brand ambassador of the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI,) Dia Mirza has made it her life’s mission to reduce the stigma around HIV/AIDS and in making the world a better place one cause at a time. Talk about being socially conscious!

8. Akshay Kumar

The original Khiladi of Bollywood more than proved he is a man who cares about his Country. Apart from donating Rs. 90 lakhs to more than 180 families who lost a member to suicide, Akshay Kumar also started a martial arts training institute purely for women to learn skills to protect and defend themselves. Furthermore, the actor also donated Rs. 15 lakhs to more than thirty widows and promised to donate the same amount every five months!

While playing the role of heroes in Bollywood movies may seem like an easy task, seeing these actors play real life heroes is heartwarming. If you think we missed out on any other celebrities like these, comment and let us know!
