B-Town celebrities and some of the most iconic Indian cricket personalities are rallied up to address the issue of Domestic Violence during lockdown. The initiative is titled #LockdownOnDomesticViolence, which addresses the sharp increase in domestic violence cases during lockdown and victim can call 100 to report their issues.
Bollywood celebs such as Dia Mirza, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Karan Johar, Vidya Balan, Farhan Akhtar, Rahul Bose along with Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Mithali Raj among others have supported the cause.
Actress Anushka Sharma dropped the awareness video on her social media.

According to data shared by the National Commission for Women, they received 239 complaints related to domestic violence between March 22 and April 16. They had received 123 complaints from February 27 and March 22.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had declared the lockdown from March 24 to help fight the spread of the novel coronavirus.
NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma earlier said that the high number can be attributed to the lockdown imposed due to the coronavirus outbreak which has locked the abuser and the victim together.
Fifty-two helplines have been started in different parts of the country to help women facing domestic violence during the lockdown. While some of these helplines are active nationally, some are state specific and others were set up at district level.
