Breast Cancer: Bollywood Creates Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast cancer has affected many women globally. To create awareness about it recently, the hottest men in Bollywood come together to talk about their favourite women in the world. Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol and Farhan Akhtar speak from their heart on what women mean to them in their life and leave you with a goosebump ending.

Latest estimates show that breast cancer has affected approximately 1,02,000 Indian women in 2012. The stars request women to get themselves tested as this is the biggest precaution against breast cancer.

Interestingly, this Public Service Announcement may have the hottest guys in Bollywood but it is conceptualized, written and directed by Zoya Akhtar. She has created this PSA for the Ogaan Cancer Foundation. Spearheaded by Kavita Bharati and Archana Pillai, Ogaan Cancer Foundation aims at promoting and educating women on the importance of getting tested for breast cancer before it is too late.

Ogaan Cancer Foundation has even roped in Sonam Kapoor as their brand ambassador, who is proud of this role. "Everyone seems to know someone with breast cancer - I lost an aunt to it. Detecting cancer early is the only way to fight and that requires awareness about tests and a healthy lifestyle. I'm very happy to support the OCF team, which has shown earnestness and a sense of dedicated purpose," she says.
