Katrina Kaif was appointed as an ambassador for Educate Girls initiative here in Mumbai. During her media interaction “Tiger Zinda Hai” actress Katrina claimed that message-oriented movies are a great way to spread awareness about a social topic, such as “Secret Superstar”.
Talking about having a movie specifically based on “Educating Girl Child” in Bollywood, Actress Katrina Kaif said, “I don’t believe you need to have a movie to take this cause further or spread the awareness about this cause. There are many ways we can do it, although a movie on it, sometimes a message which comes across through movie, which is non-judgmentally, non-forcefully or organically via an entertaining form, as a movie, is an amazing way to get the message across. Someone making a movie would be outstanding”
“Although sometimes I believe underlining exactly what you are trying to say, such as Secret Superstar, that movie had that message. That was definitely the message that got across, a young talented girl who is being stopped from fulfilling her dreams because the society and world around her are not allowing her to do that, so for me, there are movies being made like that, you doesn’t necessarily need a movie just about the classroom. But this messaging coming into our movies is a great way to take the message further in our society. We all love movies and that is a great way to get people’s attention on the topic”
Educate Girls works to improve girl child enrolment, retention and learning outcomes for all children in educationally backward districts of India and Katrina Kaif has been appointed the ambassador for the cause.
Katrina Kaif is currently busy with Zero, starring Shahrukh Khan and “Thugs Of Hindostan” which also stars Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan.
