Thiruvananthapuram | Malayalam actress Manju Warrier is all set to don the garb of a magician to support UNICEF’s ambitious ‘Golden 1000 Days’ initiative. Manju will perform magic along with noted magician and UNICEF’s celebrity supporter Gopinath Muthukad to create awareness about the significance of the first 1000 days in a child’s life.
The 37-year-old How Old Are You actress has already began her preliminary training in magic under Muthukad at the Magic Planet, a magic themed park located at Kazhakoottam near here. Titled as ‘MoM’ (Magic of Motherhood), the show would give lessons on how to shape a societys long-term health, stability and prosperity by paying attention on the first 1000 days of a child’s life, Magic Planet sources said.
It would also impart lessons, through magic, how to reduce the maternal and child mortality through improved health and nutritional status of adolescents, pregnant and lactating women as well as young children.
Manju said she was happy to be part of such a drive and committed as an artist to be a part of such social responsible initiatives in the future also. The magic show by Manju would be held in the state capital later this month, Magic Planet sources said.
