"Meet Mukul and Tushant! Two young boys who come at 6 AM sharp, everyday at #BabaKaDhaba to help Baba and his wife. I am moved by their selflessness and relentless support," he wrote in the caption. Aparshakti Khurana further explained how the movement should not be limited to Delhi's Baba Ka Dhaba alone as there are many such similar eateries everywhere around us. "We all have many similar Baba Ka Dhabhas around us. Maybe we can learn from Mukul and Tushant and add some joy in the lives of people who need it the most," concluded Khurana.
What an incredible gesture by Aparshakti Khurana to support Baba Ka Dhaba and inspire others to do so as well! We hope to see more such positive and life-altering social media movements in future too.
