Bollywood stars which are known for their larger than life living don't just play characters on the big screen, but they also play a vital role in changing lives of the needful. Today we'll be telling you about Alia Bhatt. Alia made her Bollywood debut with Karan Johar's 'Student Of The Year'. In a young age, she did offbeat movies such as 'Highway' and 'Udtaa Punjab'. These movies not just received a good critical acclaim but also did great at the box office. Her recent release 'Raazi' which told us the story of a spy became one of the highest grossing films this year. Now the actress is again in the media for an utterly good reason. Alia has collaborated with a Bangalore based organization AROHA. a campaign Alia Bhatt launched earlier this year at the Stylecracker Night Market, enables fans to buy handpicked favorites from her personal closet, for charity. Recently, the proceeds from her wardrobe were used to light up homes of about 40 families in Kikkeri village of the Mandya district, Karnataka, through the Liter Of Light program which is run by Bengaluru based organization, AROHA. Through this program, AROHA recycles plastic bottles to provide solar lamps to economically backward communities that have limited or no access to electricity. Speaking about the project, Alia said,
“So many families in India continue to live in darkness and Liter of Light’s eco-friendly solar lamps are an innovative and sustainable way to light up homes. They work with local communities, using locally sourced materials to assemble and install the lamps, thus empowering the community and improving the quality of life. The project in Kikkeri will benefit 200 lives and through Mi Wardrobe is Su Wardrobe we plan to work with many such organizations, creating a brighter future for many more.”The project is also supported by Standard Electricals which is a subsidiary of Havells India Ltd.
