Apart from the singers, there will be several real-life heroes and champions of fighting gender violence who will be present at the concert.

Farhan Akhtar asserts,

“We are using our creativity and our arts at the Lalkaar concert to galvanize the movement. To inspire the youth and to be a catalyst for change – that is what MARD stands for. I am grateful to all of the artists that are coming together to say Bas Ab Bahut Ho Gaya & to End Violence Against Women and Girls”.

Poonam Muttreja, Executive Director, Population Foundation of India (PFI) adds,

“For a very long time, we have been talking about violence against women and making policies and laws to prevent it. Though this was essential, now its high time to execute those as well.”

Feroz Abbas Khan says,

“We have made films based on the lives of Sania Mirza and Vidya Balan which kick-started the campaign. Post which we engaged with more than 600 colleges where we had our workshops on violence against women and girls. We asked the students to give us 2-minute films based on violence faced by women and girls. To which, we received 1700 entries. Our idea is to sensitize the issue on a continuous basis.”
