It's amazing to see an international brand supporting women to be the best version of themselves through such unique initiatives, truly bringing about a revolutionary change. I hope to further support the brand's vision and spread the message of worth and empowerment to every beautiful woman out there!"
Sharing her views on the collaboration, Mithali Raj said, "Being a South Indian woman in the field of sports, I have faced innumerable challenges to make a mark in the world today. My struggles have shaped me into a mentally and emotionally strong person, let alone physical strength. I am ever so grateful to L'Oreal Paris for bringing alive my story so beautifully to the audience. My advice to every woman out there is to believe in yourself that you can achieve anything you set your mind and heart to, all you need to do is discover your true potential and channelize your energy in the right direction."
