We all know that famous saying 'Charity begins at home.' And in India all it takes is a few steps outside any decent home to realise the amount of social work needed to help the hundreds of poor and homeless around us. In recent times, NGO's have started to spread all over the country with social workers helping bring back smiles to the underprivileged one person at a time.
In 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein' Kareena Kapoor's character Dia Sharma plays the role of one such social worker. Dia, the social activist is seen working with AIDS patients, performing deliveries of animal and human babies and protesting land grabbing in urban areas. She leaves behind a lavish lifestyle just so that she can help the less fortunate in and around her locality. Her ultimate goal is to bring happiness to the community and make everyone smile.
In 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein', Dia gets very upset and breaks up with her boyfriend Sriram Venkat (Imran Khan) when she finds out that he has bought a plot of land where an orphanage is to be built. Her outlook on life is based on helping the community and not based on selfish motives. Even in real life we see Kareena as the celebrity face for UNICEF who is time and again seen visiting orphanages and schools. While most stars celebrated Eid with their families, she chose to turn it into a compassionate day by celebrating the festival with kids from an orphanage. She truly does justice to her onscreen persona as Dia Sharma.
We thank you Kareena Kapoor, for teaching us to spread love and joy; especially among the less fortunate. You are one of the most iconic role models of our time and we have a lot to learn from you.
