Chopra ‘using status for good cause’

Priyanka Chopra has insisted that she uses her status as a celebrity to do good.

The actress, who recently signed up as an ambassador for child rights with UNICEF, has spoken out against social injustice in India, reports Daily News and Analysis.

Of her appointment with UNICEF, the 28-year-old said: “Now, as the brand ambassador, I can officially lend my voice to the cause of education of the girl child. My parents gave me the freedom to be whatever I want. They gave me the power to dream and I hope every parent can do that.

“I am neither in the government, nor am I the president. I am just raising my voice as a celebrity. So I use my popularity and star status for a good cause.”

The star joins fellow Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Sharmila Tagore in supporting UNICEF’s work with children.
