The actress also mentioned the reason she felt so strong for children’s education and said, “I have a personal connect as I have grown up watching my grandpa start a school which was for underprivileged kids who could not afford to spend on education. I remember going to that school and interacting with them, when I had an off from my school so that was a small initiative I saw my family start in Chandigarh. Which is why this has a personal connect with me.”

She added, “I have always wanted to do something for the education and empowerment of children. Especially the rural kids as accessibility to basics like books, good public schools, teachers is still work in progress in such pockets of the country. While researching I came across various NGOs who are working on this front and the least we can do is a contribution in whatever small ways we can.”
