Actor Ayushmann Khurrana inaugurated a food truck for the transgender community in Zirakpur, Chandigarh. The food truck is known by the name ‘Sweekar,’ an initiative towards spreading awareness for the acceptance of the transgender community in society.

Ayushmann handed over the keys to Dhananjay Chauhan, the first transgender student at Panjab University and an active voice for the community in the state, on Thursday. He also took to social media and shared the pictures from the inauguration and wrote, “Jab hum ek dusre ko karenge ‘Sweekar’, tabhi toh hum kar payenge India ko aur behtar…I wish Mx Dhananjay Chauhan @DhananjayChau15 and members of the transgender community of Chandigarh good luck in their food venture! Onwards and upwards.”

The actor spoke to ANI about how important it is to make the transgender community feel accepted and empowered in society.

This Food Truck has been inaugurated for a very special reason to encourage and include the trans community in society. It’s a small step… more people who think about society and are sensitive towards it should come forward and help them. They (trans) are an invisible and underprivileged community in our country and this food truck is a kind of push to make them self-reliant and financially independent so that they can find a place in society.
