Anil Kapoor bats for children’s education
Mumbai: Stressing on the importance of education, Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor said it plays a key role in moulding children into successful individuals.
“Education is the key to success. Education plays a very important role in life as it helps in moulding us into successful individuals. It helps one in taking the decisions,” Kapoor told PTI on the sidelines of an education event ‘P&G Shiksha’, which has impacted the lives of over 800,000 children in the past 11 years by building and supporting over 450 schools across India.
To celebrate this path-breaking impact, actress Kalki Koechlin also joined Kapoor to extend her support to the initiative.
“What Shiksha is doing is great… it is an innovative idea. Buying a P&G product can help in educating a child. Educating eight lakh children till now is a commendable thing.
I am proud to be associated with them. I am happy to be associated with this wonderful opportunity to support the cause of education,” Kapoor, 58, said.
As a doting father, Kapoor, who has three children — Rhea, Sonam and Harshvardhan– said he understands the importance of providing good quality education to children.
“Education helps them in making decisions independently. Like a friend, I was supportive to them but at the same time made sure they got their education,” he added.
The actor urged everyone to take the ‘Pledge for Shiksha’ by buying P&G products.
