This autism month, Bollywood actress Sanya Malhotra attended the opening ceremony of ‘So-Hum Smiles’, a special school for neurodivergent individuals. The school which is supported by an NGO, provides exceptional care and support to those in need. With her presence, Sanya extended her support to the school’s noble cause. She believes that the institution is more than just a therapy center as it also embodies a vision of inclusivity, empowerment, and compassion.

She said, “I am truly happy that this center is opening which is the need of an hour to provide help for the neurodivergent individuals. It is critical to find a structured yet flexible learning environment for these people focused on life skills and independent living. It is imperative to find acceptance and a place for these kids and adults in society not just for these kids but also for society to do better and be uplifted. I am sure the center will create a fruitful impact on numerous lives.”
