In a statement the actress and producer Mirza said, “The very distinct goals of Swades Foundation and the effort being made to achieve these goals are admirable and inspiring. I am grateful for the opportunity to be an active participant in achieving these goals, and hope that they can together draw more people into our mission objective.”
