Mumbai: Bollywood's star couple Ajay Devgn and Kajol have associated themselves with the Maharashtra government's campaign against female foeticide and are making a film on the issue.
Ajay Devgn's script for a social awareness film has been approved by the state's health department.
Health Minister Suresh Shetty said the department has appreciated the script and it will be the endeavour of the government to make the film available to maximum number of theatres.
‘We are strictly implementing laws to prevent child sex determination for which social awareness campaign is also necessary,’ said Mr Shetty.
He said Ajay Devgn is making the film free of cost and the star couple are extending all help to the government in the social awareness campaign. They are expected to start filming soon.
Last week, Mr Shetty wrote to actor-filmmaker Aamir Khan after the first episode of his TV show Satyamev Jayate raised the topic of female foeticide. The minister urged him to join hands with the state government on this issue.
