Lucknow, May 4 (IBNS): Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, who has broken a number of records on field, has recently shattered shaving stereotypes by getting shaved by Barbershop girls in Uttar Pradesh.

Growing up in a small village in Banwari Tola, Jyoti (18) and Neha (16) run their own barbershop in the village near Gorakhpur. Challenging gender stereotypes, these girls took over their father’s barber shop while also ensuring they do not skip their education.

Tendulkar, who got shaved by someone else for the first time, said, “The blade that shaves, does not know whether a girl or a guy is using it. I think, this is the most important line of the video, because if dreams do not discriminate then why do we? We should always remember the kids of today are watching and they learn from what they see. I hope lots of kids today will see how Neha and Jyoti and their village has shown great courage and right attitude to break stereotypes and move forward’’

Gillette took a step forward to celebrate both Neha and Jyoti and the men in their village. Their inspirational story has been narrated through an unconventional ad film by Gillette which has gone viral on the internet with 25 million views currently.

As a part of Gillette’s ongoing ‘Safalta Apni Mutthi Mein’ programme both the girls were presented a scholarship covering their education and professional needs.

Gillette will be providing Neha and Jyoti skill set training for styling and grooming, through a top salon academy. After completing the training, both Neha and Jyoti will get a job opportunity to work at one of India’s premium salon, Hakim’s Aalim.

Apart from Tendulkar, actor-director-singer Farhan Akhtar and Aalim also got a shave from the girls.
