Farhan Akhtar is someone who uses his celeb status to support social causes. The actor-filmmaker, who had earlier launched MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination) — an initiative to raise social awareness against rape, has now taken up the task of spreading awareness about water conservation. And, guess who he has in tow? His daughters, Akira and Shakya, with ex-wife Adhuna Bhabani. The couple was recently granted divorce. “Farhan feels very strongly about saving water, and has been working towards support the cause. But now, his kids have also joined him,” confirms Farhan’s spokesperson.

Farhan’s girls are excited about the cause and have been helping him ideate on how to save water and spread awareness. A source close to Farhan tells us: “Shakya and Akira give him simple but useful tips on how he can avoid wasting water, like finishing a glass of water, instead of leaving it half filled. Or not leaving the tap open while shaving. Akira and Shakya have even stopped using the bath tub to bathe, as they, too, want to contribute in saving as much water as possible.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Farhan is shooting for his Nikhil Advani production, Lucknow Central, in Mumbai.
