The innovative concept of breaking stereotypes in #HumTum is so refreshing to see. I love how the girls are independent and are the ones excelling in studies and sports while the guys are helping out with domestic work and are involved in hobbies like cooking, gardening etc. pic.twitter.com/u4X0PztTdU
