“…I would love to be one. Like a dance teacher or acting teacher, but not a History or Geography teacher,” Alia said at a media interaction for the “Girl Rising: A Global Campaign For Girls’ Education in India” event here.
The “Girl Rising” event was to officially announce the India premiere of its film “Girl Rising – Woh Padhegi Woh Udegi”, which will be broadcast on Star plus on August 29 at 1.30 pm. The film is a collaboration between the government’s ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ campaign and Star TV. It will also be released on digital platforms in both Hindi and English.
Actresses Nandita Das, Madhuri Dixit, Sushmita Sen, Alia Bhatt, Parineeti Chopra and Kareena Kapoor feature in the film, which is produced by actresses Priyanka Chopra and Freida Pinto, who are the brand ambassadors of the initiative and also star in it.
The film in English, directed by Academy Award nominee Richard E. Robbins, had released in 2013 and showcases the stories of eight resilient girls from different countries who battled obstacles to achieve their dreams.
