Actor Arjun Kapoor has invested in FoodCloud, an up-and-coming meal delivery startup, with the goal of improving gender parity and instilling a sense of self-reliance. During the coronavirus epidemic, his business platform onboarded some 10,000 women from throughout the country, making home cooks self-reliant so they could help and run their families in times of crisis.
“I’m glad that I was able to build a platform with like-minded people who cared for and helped so many women to be self-sufficient throughout the coronavirus epidemic,” Arjun adds. The COVID-19 epidemic has had a significant impact on many women, particularly those working in India. We’ve seen a slew of statistics indicating that during these trying times, women have been encouraged to prioritise their families over their professional ambitions.”
“When I began my adventure with the platform, I was eager to transform as many brilliant home-chefs into entrepreneurs as possible, and I’m quite glad to announce that we have succeeded in doing so in the purest sense,” he says. Because of the chances we have offered, these strong women have been able to run and contribute to their families while also taking care of their particular needs. This makes me very happy.”
“Improving scope so that women may participate in establishing equality in society would go a long way,” the actor continues. This is critical in dismantling various society prejudices, and I will continue to assist people who seek to challenge conventional standards.”
This year, Arjun has many releases on the big screen, including Aasman Bhardwaj’s directorial debut Kuttey, Mohit Siri’s Ek Villain 2 and Ajay Bahl’s The Lady Killer.”
