awareness generated through such documentaries is important
for combating this serious global issue," Kapoor
has reportedly said.

spreading awareness; 2,000 women have already been rescued
from modern-day slavery (directly or indirectly) as
a result of this initiative," he added.

on trafficking in Nepal by Demi Moore.
