‘With great power comes great responsibility’ is an old saying we always hear. Being a celebrity, people are always watching your steps in making you their idol and following you constantly. Be it to inspire or the capability to extend your hand in doing a good deed, you need to have a heart broad enough to venture into humanitarian acts. One of the primary objective of International Men’s Day is – highlighting positive male role models. The broader and ultimate aim of this day is to promote basic humanitarian values.
Many of our stars have constantly been into such humanitarian acts proving that they are not only heroes on screen but off screen as well. Check out the role models who have done their little bit.
