’Tis the season when the essence of goodness radiates all around us, and we are thrilled to announce the return of #BeautifulIndians, now in its third consecutive year.
Proudly presented by Femina, a leading authority in beauty and fashion for over 60 years, and Mamaearth, India’s foremost purpose-driven beauty and personal care brand, this season continues our journey of recognising that genuine acts of kindness and positive actions are what truly enhance our beauty.
The panel for the first season of #BeautifulIndians included changemakers such as Ghazal and Varun Alagh, founders of Mamaearth; Harteerath Singh Ahluwalia, director of the Hemkunt Foundation; veteran actor Shefali Shah; new-age filmmaker, and author Tahira Kashyap Khurrana, and Femina’s Editor-In-Chief, Ambika Muttoo. From Raji Akka ensuring safe rides for women, to Ria Sharma empowering acid attack survivors to transcend their scars, and creators such as Sakshi Sidhwani, Raj Shamani, and Ranveer Allahbadia, we were privileged to honour these goodness ambassadors. Not forgetting the impactful voices of Taapsee Pannu, advocating for the disadvantaged, Manushi Chhillar, crowned Youth Icon of the Year for her empowering Project Shakti and Ayushmann Khurrana for actively supporting a multitude of social causes. These remarkable individuals were the crown jewels that defined season one.
For season two, the panel was graced by luminaries embodying diverse expertise – from Kulsum Shadab Wahab, executive director of the Hothur Foundation, to the talented actor Rasika Dugal, the visionary Kiran Verma of Simply Blood, the inspiring transgender rights activist Shri Gauri Sawant, celebrated filmmaker and writer Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, the dynamic duo Ghazal and Varun Alagh, founders of Mamaearth, and the visionary Editor-In-Chief of Femina, Ambika Muttoo. From the impactful Manvi Tiwari championing mental health, the entrepreneurial spirit of Urmila Asher (aka Gujju Ben), to the dynamic power couple Gurmeet Choudhary and Debina Bonnerjee, the eco-warrior Aakash Ranison, and the stellar contributions of stars like Vicky Kaushal, Rani Mukerji, and Sonu Sood. Together, we celebrated those who surpassed expectations, creating tangible and meaningful change.
As we embark on our nationwide quest to identify the next wave of goodness ambassadors, spanning from everyday individuals to content creators and celebrities, our focus continues to be on narratives that illuminate goodness in its myriad forms. Whether it’s a fervour for environmental stewardship, spreading joy to the less fortunate, or ensuring no child is left behind in the realm of education – these are the stories that inspire us all.
Have a goodness story to inspire us? We would love you to be a part of the third season of Femina Mamaearth #BeautifulIndians. Stay tuned to find out how…
