Ms. Gupta, CEO of Scotland-based company PG Papers, said, “What I like about this young generation of Indian cricketers is that they are responsible and want to make a difference on and off the field. I am very connected to the cause taken up by Virat.”

“Slavery has no place in this world and we need to stand up and do our bit. I am glad Virat has come forward against this evil, and by buying this magnificent piece of art created by my favourite artist Sacha Jafri, I tick two boxes.
