Actor Anil Kapoor has recently teamed up with Hollywood actress Demi Moore to make people more aware of human trafficking. Demi who along with her husband, actor Ashton Kutcher has taken up the cause in America while Anil is doing his bit in India.

Anil told Daily Bhaskar: "Demi is working on the same issue as I am. I have just started working on it, while Demi has been associated with the cause for a long time now. Yes, it is a great idea of forming a coalition with her and putting even more spotlight on the issue at hand."

The 51-year-old actor, who visited a remote village in North India, said he was moved when he saw the effects of human trafficking first hand: "I was moved with what I saw. There has to be more effort on the menace that is going on. The woman I spoke to, had become so immune to life's sorrows as she had gone through so much, that she forgot to smile. It's a face that I am not going to forget in my life." He said.

The Hollywood power couple who have formed their own foundation — 'The Demi and Ashton Foundation'(DNA,) have been touring across the world to raise awareness on the issue.

Anil said: "We are already working together, but at different levels. She is doing it at a much bigger stage and doing a great job too. Both of us are drawing attention to the fact that there is an urgent need to act on the issue of trafficking."
