MUMBAI: MTV has announced its new take on freedom through "Maa Kasam Hindustan" with MTV ACT. The initiative has been launched with series of campaigns that urge the youth to stop being a fence sitter; but to take a stand and take action against issues that concern them. The campaign is based on MTV ACT philosophy that every action counts -no matter how small it is. And, is backed with numerous initiatives that are supported under MTV ACT s pro social platform.



Leading the campaign, John Abraham and Nargis Fakhri have joined hands with the MTV VJs to bring about a change. All the MTV VJs & faces – Anusha, Gaelyn, Nikhil Chinapa, Cyrus Brocha, Rannvijay and Raghu will participate in the campaign by taking their very own Maa Kasam oath on-air. Each promo will feature one VJ talking about that one change they would like to bring about in India. Right from conservation of paper and animal welfare to racial discrimination and cleanliness, the campaign will see the VJs taking a pledge for all. Each person pledges their action to make a difference to life surrounding them. Lead musicians including AR Rahman, Salim Suleiman and Papon, are also taking the pledge by "Maa Kasam Hindustan". Starting August 12, 2013 the campaign will engage with the youth till the end of the month.

I do believe that the future of the country lies in the hands of this generation and only they can bring about the required changes. So come on India, voice your opinion and make the difference.”



The beautiful Nargis Fakhri said, “I think it’s high time we all take charge of the situation and not rely on others to bring about a difference in the country. Through this campaign we are urging all the youngsters to take an oath and make their actions count. Maa Kasam Hindustan is really an amazing campaign and I am extremely happy to be associated with it.”
