Bollywood celebrities have been a major force for raising awareness and extending their support to the injustice within a society. Now, Priyanka Chopra has joined the bandwagon of stars who have raised their voices against child abuse.

She also highlighted how it was our responsibility to protect the ‘fragile’ innocence of a child, and even urged fans to report any instances of child abuse that they witness.
