March 5 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor has quite a following amongst kids, as well as the older generations, and that was reiterated when he walked into Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium for an event held recently. Shahid and his friend, Ahmed Khan, were the special guests at the event. They were there to promote their forthcoming film, ‘Paathshaala’ and arrived soon after the toss. After the screening of a short AV on the movie, Shahid and Ahmed praised the organisers of the match on their commitment to children. They also spoke of their film, and urged the spectators to watch the eye-opening ‘Paathshaala’. Then they did a little jig, much to the delight of those present.
The charity cricket match, held between ONGC and Air India personnel, saw the likes of Praful Patel, Murli Deora, and topmost executives from both organisations cheering from the stands.
The movie revolves around kids, and highlights the current situation of the education system in India. This Eros International presentation is directed by Milind Ukey, and produced by Paperdoll Entertainment.
