The pandemic has been harsh on people from various sectors of work fields or otherwise. In such dire times, Arjun Kapoor invested in a food delivery start-up business. The actor shares how this business helped around 10,000 women to move forward towards self-reliance. He further communicates how he intended to make his contribution in bridging the gap of gender disparity and aid in giving an outlet to home-cooks in earning for themselves and running their families.
Commenting on the same, he said, “I’m proud that I have managed to create a platform with like-minded people who have taken care of and enabled so many women to be self-reliant during the coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has definitely impacted a lot of women, especially those in the Indian workforce. We have seen so many statistics that verify that women have been pushed to focus on their families over their professional aspirations during these difficult times.”
Continuing he added, “When I started my journey with the platform, I was keen to turn the many talented home-chefs into entrepreneurs and I’m highly pleased to report that we have managed to create an impact in the truest sense. These mighty women have been able to run and contribute to their households and also take care of their individual needs due to the opportunities that we have provided. This brings me a lot of joy.”
“Enhancing scope so that women can participate in creating equality in society will go a long way. This is key to overturn several societal stereotypes and I will continue in my effort to aid those who want to shatter societal norms,” he concluded.
On the work front, Arjun Kapoor has Aasman Bhardwaj’s directorial debut Kuttey, Mohit Siri’s Ek Villain 2, and Ajay Bahl’s The Lady Killer in the pipeline.
