All Out® Launches #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata Campaign
Actor Sonali Bendre Lends her Voice to the Campaign and Encourages Mothers to Share Their Stories and Seek Support from Their Community.
Actress Partners with All Out® to Share an Important Message of Encouragement with Mothers.
Sometimes, there is strength in vulnerability. The new campaign from All Out® has touched on a very important aspect of a mother’s life in India, where she is conditioned to believe that her instincts are all-knowing and unerring when it comes to her child. All Out® acknowledges that it is difficult for mothers to admit #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata and celebrates the toughness mothers show in taking a stance against the pressures of society. A proud mother, Sonali Bendre supports the campaign by encouraging mothers to share their #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata stories so that they can help other mothers and their children.
On Facebook she said, “Mujhe Sab Nahi Pata – four very simple words, but they have the power to lift a major weight off a mother’s shoulders. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Motherhood is a journey of wins, mistakes and learnings. For me, it is about parenting to the best of my abilities, not to perfection. I encourage you to not only watch this beautiful film but also come forward and share your stories with us.”
The campaign has touched a chord with Sonali as she also candidly posted on her Instagram page, “Mothers are expected to be the ones with answers to every question. Under pressure we do forget the simple gesture of ASKING for help. We also tend to forget that sharing what we know, helps another person learn from it. Not having the right solution every time is not an imperfection, but a part of how we grow and evolve. While, I enjoy sharing my stories and experiences, I’d now love to hear your stories. Share it with me and let’s proudly say #IDidntKnow #MujheSabNahiPata.”
All Out® takes a powerful stand for mothers in India with its latest campaign #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata. The campaign celebrates mothers who are tough enough to acknowledge that they don’t know everything. It features a film (watch here) about a mother’s #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata story which aims to help Indian moms be more aware and vigilant against the threat of dengue.
In the film, a mother describes how societal pressures made her believe that she knows how to protect her child. But as her son is treated in the hospital for dengue, she realises she didn’t know that her own home could become a breeding ground for dengue-carrying mosquitoes.
Sonali Bendre, campaign spokesperson and a mother herself, uses the platform to inspire mothers to share their #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata stories to help their peers be more vigilant and support each other. With the premise that one mother’s acceptance of not knowing it all has the power to encourage other moms to be more vigilant, the campaign highlights that it takes a tough mother to admit #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata.
Speaking on why she is lending her voice to All Out® #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata campaign, Bollywood Actor Sonali Bendre says, “As a mother, I try every day to do my best but I also know how it feels to not get everything right and learn from my mistakes. Admitting that I do not know it all as a mother does not make me any less of a parent. In fact, it helps me learn and grow when I seek knowledge from those who have had different experiences. I support #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata campaign because it encourages mothers to support each other by sharing their own experiences.”
Acclaimed filmmaker Shoojit Sircar, the film’s director added, “This film celebrates the toughness of mothers who acknowledge that they don’t know it all and are willing to seek support to be able to protect their children. With this film, All Out® inspires mothers to come together and share their #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata stories to be more vigilant in the future.”
The 360-degree campaign will start with the #IDidntKnow / #MujheSabNahiPata digital film, followed by on-ground activations with bloggers and influencers and a robust online outreach.
