The actor has strongly been advocating the message that women need to be respected through his MARD Campaign. He started MARD after his lawyer named Pallavi Purkayastha was sexually assaulted and then killed by her home watchman in August 2012.

Pallavi was a Mumbai-based lawyer who worked with Farhan Akhtar 's production house, Excel Entertainment. In 2013, Farhan performed at a college concert in Bangalore wearing a t-shirt with MARD's logo and since has been performing regularly and spreading awareness. It’s indeed a great effort which Farhan Akhtar has undertaken since five years and hats off to his philanthropic efforts.
