Tennis ace Sania Mirza joins Farhan Akhtar's anti-women harassment crusade; shoots Father's Day video Farahn Akhtar has always been a vocal critic of gender inequality, and his social awareness campaign, MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination) bears testimony to that. In March, the actor-filmmaker launched another initiative under its aegis, Bus Ab Bahut Hogaya – Enough is Enough, which is primarily a filmmaking contest. Now, tennis champion Sania Mirza has joined hands with Farhan to attack gender bias by shooting a special video with her father, Imran Mirza. Directed by Ashish Sawhny, it throws light on the father-daughter bond and will release on Father's Day (June 18). Says Sania, "I was happy to shoot this video with my father since it summarises our (her and sister Anam) relationship as friends. Our mother is also a strong female figure in our life and has helped us become who we are today.
