Pune, December 31, 2018: The Pune7Aces team, led by their owner and Bollywood star Taapsee Pannu, today pledged their support for breast cancer, which has emerged as one of the most rampant and widespread forms, and the entire team wore pink jersey during their match against Mumbai Rockets at the Balewadi Indoor Stadium here on Saturday.
Earlier in the day, Taapsee and her team went to the Prashanti Cancer Care Cantre, an NGO that treats breast cancer patients, and met many survivors and everyone admitted there. She also asked them to support the team as they look to win the PBL title in their debut year. A huge contingent of young and old associated with the NGO and many survivors later came to the stadium to show their support to the team. In fact, they were the noisiest in the stands too.
Taapsee, who raised a sensitive issue through her critically acclaimed and widely accepted movie Pink, said: “I always wanted to do something for this cause and this is just a small step in that direction. I am so overwhelmed with emotions meeting them here today and I salute their strength of character. May GOD give every woman such strength to bear the pain and win over it.”
