In a note for the Meer foundation website, Shah Rukh Khan has written, “In my life, I have been given several opportunities to flourish by the people around me. And this is exactly what I want to do for others especially women. My dream is to create an ecosystem that allows women, regardless of their history, to redefine, redo, or rework their lives the way they choose, the way they see fit. This might seem idealistic, but I truly believe that we can empower women to dream, grow, and live life without worry.”
Shah Rukh Khan adds, “Through Meer foundation website, I believe that we can help women who have been treated unfairly by creating a network of support. In the past year alone, I have seen the Foundation’s immense potential to better lives and change the future. We have only just begun, and we plan to grow even stronger, ultimately helping the dream become a reality.”
