The days of childhood spent in school with buddies are memorable for everyone. So is it for Shahid Kapoor who visited his childhood school, the Gyan Bharati School in New Delhi on Wednesday to promote his upcoming film Paathshaala in which he plays an English teacher.
In the school, Shahid not just met the teachers from his childhood, he also visited the classroom where he studied till fourth standard. The actor was visibly excited at taking the trip down memory lane.
‘Paathshala’ has Shahid playing a teacher who wants to reform the education system by addressing the problems faced by students.
Talking about the film, Shahid said: “Earlier my role was just of a guest appearance but it was extended because I felt the need to address the issue personally and promote it. The film is not at all for commercial success rather it aims at reaching to greater audience through mass medium of films.”
“I wish we find ways to enter into a child's mind and know what problems he/she is facing which sometimes force them to take a drastic step,” Shahid added.
