Sara Ali Khan chose to wear a bright coloured sari and sport a bindi while attending the Global Citizen concert, representing India, and has won kudos from netizens. “Really proud of this girl. Wearing a saree in a global event shows how she respects Indian culture. A true example of a bhartiya nari,” said one netizen.
The Global Citizen concert is a 24-hour music festival attended by a host of actors.
This year’s event was themed around an appeal to world leaders, philanthropists and corporations to defend the planet, defeat poverty and take action on climate change and famine and advance vaccine equity.
In her speech at the event, Sara said, “With all the pain and hardships the Covid-19 pandemic has inflicted on the whole world, the truth is, it has gotten us together for a common cause. This pandemic has shown us that no matter where you come from, we are all susceptible to tough times. We must, therefore, fight this virus together. Thanks to our scientists, we have a weapon to fight it, the vaccine. I know that there are still amongst us, people who have concerns about the vaccine and are fearful of taking it. But I strongly believe it is our duty to educate and guide everyone about vaccine because it’s only then, can we begin to rebuild, reset and rejuvenate.”
