Vidhu Vinod Chopra becomes part of Real Hero's initiative
Real Hero's an initiative honouring the selflessness of individuals to fight against malpractices within society just got a new fan in Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Real Hero's is a platform that appreciates and salutes the people involved in heroic service towards their society who are selected every year from the entire country.
This year there are 25 such heroes dedicated to different causes from women's upliftment to social welfare, youth awareness, education to children and many such allied services.
Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who was also present to honor these heroes was immensely moved by selfless service of a young girl all of 14, Bina Kalindi, who stood up against the vicious custom of child marriage in her village Purulia in West Bengal.
Vinod Chopra was moved to tears by the efforts of all the heroes especially by this young girl. Bina educates parents of her village against child marriage by going door to door. He has donated a sum of Rs. 1 crore to accelerate the monitory support for their noble cause done by these heroes. Most of these social agents of change are unable to carry on with their projects due to lack of funds. Thus, to help them all to carry on with their causes without monitory hiccups, Vinod Chopra decided to offer this help.
Vinod wants use this as an example for other people to stand up for the cause.
