She captioned the picture saying, "Growing up I was always inclined towards sports and my mother would ensure I got nutritious home-cooked meals to fuel my passion. But it’s a privilege that millions of street children do not have access to. 11,72,604 children in India can’t afford even a single meal a day! It’s time to ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india. I nominate @balanvidya @aslisona @taapsee @nithyamenen @iamkirtikulhari"
