Actress Yami Gautam who recently returned to Mumbai after tying the knot with filmmaker Aditya Dhar has resumed her pending commitments. The actress recently joined hands with the Himachal Pradesh government for their initiative, 'Baccho Ka Sahara, Phone Humara.’ With online learning becoming the new normal, many kids are robbed of educational opportunities as there is a lack of basic technology facilities in various parts of the country.

The actress took to Twitter and shared a video where she spoke in length about the initiative and her role in it. Launched under the 'Samgra Shiksha Abhiyan' of the state government, Yami who herself belongs to Himachal Pradesh, attended the event virtually.
