NITI Aayog on Thursday said it had collaborated with actor Sushant Singh Rajput for promoting two major initiatives of NITI Aayog, the promotion of BHIM and the Women Entrepreneurship Platform.

A statement from NITI Aayog reads, “As part of its larger mandate to promote digital payments across the country, the NITI Aayog has been successfully driving the digital payments campaign in India, wherein it collaborates with youth leaders and public figures to promote the cashless payment systems across the country.”

BHIM (Bharat Interface for Money) was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Digi Dhan Mela in December 2016, weeks after demonetisation in order to make digital payments easier.

The Women Entrepreneurship Platform was launched by NITI Aayog on International Women’s Day with an aim to provide a vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem where women do not face any gender-based barriers. The platform aspires to substantially increase the number of women entrepreneurs who will create and empower a dynamic New India.

While Sushant has not posted anything about the collaboration, he has kept his fans guessing with his last tweet where he wrote, “Something really important, real soon!”

He recently launched his new venture Innsaei, which according to him is a convergence of Intellectual property and emerging technologies. The actor has also shown a keen interest in Quantum Entanglement and got an invite from Shekhar Kapur to visit Massachusetts Institute of Technology for the same.
