Actor R. Madhavan has been chosen to LEPRA India. It is a non-government organisation that works in the fields of leprosy, tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS and community health. Madhavan is one of those actors who prefer a low profile and the fact is that he is few of those sincere artists who is the right names that can be chosen for this sacred purpose. Leprosy is a serious disease, but it is curable. But there are too many superstitions regarding the disease, same as with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, etc. in the country like India that is overly populated with many kinds of ill thinking awareness programs are crucial and none can be more moved than by a public figure. This mature actor and mature human being is now more responsible and no doubt he is enjoying it.
Madhavan tweeted on Monday:
“I am proud to be a goodwill ambassador for LEPRA India spreading the word that leprosy is curable and no one needs to live with it,”
Madhavan is not very regular in Bollywood, as he is very choosy about his roles. He prefers quality over the quantity. That is why we get his names in only good and watch worthy movie like Rang De Basanti, Guru, Halla Bol and more. The best part of this man is he was always involved in some or the other philanthropic causes. He has endorsed the brand, PETA that works for animal rights. He also took part in AIDS awareness program initiated by Richard Gere in India.
Madhavan’s last release was “Saala Khadoos” in 2016 that did not do excellent at the box office and before that he appeared in ‘‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’’ that was one of the biggest hits of his career.
