New dad Shahid doing his bit to help other young girls
They say fatherhood changes a person and Shahid Kapoor (above) is exemplifying it. Last year, the Rangoon actor became a proud father to daughter Misha, and now he wants to help less fortunate young girls get a better life.
A source says, “Being the father of a baby girl, Shahid is saddened that not every girl child gets the opportunity to be educated and the start to a decent future. So, he has decided to donate 15 per cent of the earnings from his clothing brand towards the cause of the girl child. He is a style icon and had launched the clothing brand last year.”
The star might go beyond that, hints the source, saying, “[Shahid] plans to donate to various initiatives that work for the education, housing and welfare of the girl child. He will join hands with an NGO that works for the education of young girls. Through this NGO, he will provide for education of girls [in need] in India and even abroad.” ■ email@example.com
