Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani are all geared up for the release of their most anticipated film Laxmii on November 9, 2020, on Disney+HotstarVIP. The film has generated quite a buzz ever since its intriguing trailer was released that shows Akshay playing the role of a transgender. The actor who has always supported women rights and held workshops for women self-defence now is doing his bit to raise awareness for the transgender community.
Today, Akshay shared an inspiring video titled Ab Hamari Baari Hai about giving respect and breaking the stereotype and prejudice towards the third gender community. Akshay and Kiara have come forward to support the cause of the third gender and have urged fans and followers to support to them with a Laal Bindi that stands for equal love and respect.
Nazar se bachne ke liye toh bahot tikke laga liye, nazariya badalne wala tikka lagane ki #AbHamariBaariHai.

The video also shows a number of transgenders with the most notable being Laxmi Narayan Tripathi who is a transgender activist and Acharya MahaMandleshwar, Kinnar Akhada, and the Founding Member of the Asia Pacific Transgender Network & Chairperson to Astitiva. The government through numerous amendments has recognized the third gender and given them equal rights, but the society still needs to come forward and do their bit. With the above initiative and through their film, the actors hope that they will be able to provide a paradigm shift in the thinking of the people.
