The first phase of this on-ground initiative was executed on December 23, 2009 at Nariman Point, Mumbai. The initiative saw more than 500 people coming together to form a human chain in support of this the movement. Jagran Solutions was the event partner.

Women protagonists of other shows on Star Plus, such as Dhani and Sarla of ‘Sajan Ghar Jana Hai’, were also part of this movement, where the participants took an oath to stand up against disrespect.

Star Plus plans to replicate this human chain in four other cities – Delhi, Indore, Ahmedabad and Lucknow. The channel is also planning to enter into partnerships with various NGOs that work for the upliftment of women and women’s rights.
