Ashton Kutcher Makes Lasting Impression In India
As a Hollywood actor, he is already noticeable because of his famous face. And at a leggy 6ft2 it’s perhaps no surprise Ashton Kutcher had trouble fitting in during a trip to India’s Dehli area yesterday.
The 34-year-old had a group of local women smiling as he towered over them. But the focus of the meeting was serious, as the star sought to bring attention to their cause – which highlights sex trafficking in the region.
The star was talking to victims of the horrific crime during a visit to an NGO “apne aap” as he took a break from filming his new movie.
While locals donned their traditional dress, Ashton opted to wear Western clothing in the form of beige trousers and a blue and white checked shirt.
Alongside a photograph of the residents laughing and smiling as he loomed over them, he wrote about his fulfilling time there.
He posted on the micro-blogging website: ‘Met some powerful girls today in Delhi at Apne Aap: A grassroots movement to end sex trafficking!’
Kutcher has been photographed in India where he is shooting scenes for Jobs, the biopic on late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
Kutcher, who landed in Delhi last week, has been touring the north of India retracing the steps of Jobs, who visited the country on a spiritual journey 35 years ago.
Ashton, who founded the Demi & Ashton (DNA) Foundation with ex-wife Demi Moore in 2009 to fight for the rights of women trafficked into prostitution, visited a village of caste-based prostitutes on Friday.
He became involved in the fight against trafficking three years ago after meeting Ruchira Gupta with his ex-wife in New York.
The India shoot of Jobs centres on the Apple founder’s three month journey around India in search of spiritual fulfillment before he founded the iconic company in his parents’ California garage.
The actor has shot scenes in Delhi and the spiritual retreat of Vrindavan.
Meanwhile, this week his new girlfriend Mila Kunis was forced to recruit a family member for some car help while her beau was thousands of miles away.
