The Rockstar actor has joined forces with veteran actress and social activist Shabana Azmi by becoming an ambassador for her NGO, the Mijwan Welfare Society, which helps raise the standard of education and health for girls living in villages across India.
Kapoor told NDTV: "I haven't done much for Mijwan Welfare Society besides attaching my name to it. Like Shabana aunty said that, being an actor, there is a certain amount of people who will listen to your voice. This is a movement for which the lady sitting next to me is very passionate about.
"We must believe in that because there is a lot of honesty, love and feelings behind it. There is no agenda behind it."
Kapoor explained that he believes in equality of education and opportunities.
"I have a sister. She has been very close to me and my family. My parents have brought us up equally or, as a matter of fact, my sister was given an extra edge over me," he said.
"I think that is how every Indian family should bring up their children."
The actor previously took to the catwalk to raise funds for the charity.
