Bollywood icons Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and H-Town A-lister Judi Dench will work together to promote education among the underprivileged in India.All three of them aim to inspire children in low-income group for studies so that they have a better life and better opportunities when they grow up.
Academy award winner sound engineer Resul Pookutty is the man behind this unique effort to get the world renowned personalities together for the cause.His foundation has been serving for the cause from quite long time, Pookutty says in his words,"It is unimaginable that even in the 21st century there is rampant illiteracy in India. We are making our presence felt in the world and this aspect is something that should definitely be tackled. Along with economy and cultural boom, India should not be spoken as a country that is also illiteracy stricken.”
"Without Amitabh Bachchan's blessing, my project would have not started at all. He has helped me with funds and goodness. It is time to implement new things. Just when I was planning different things, Judi Dench came to my rescue. She had spent eight weeks in the country while shooting her Hollywood project in Rajasthan. She saw the rich and the poor and was touched by the work that we were doing,” Pookutty furthur added.
Speaking aboud Judi’s part in the campaign Resul said,"Judi has told me to draw plans and just tell her what is to be done and she will try her level best to do more than what has been asked of her.” About Shah Rukh’s involvement in the campaighn,he said, "I have met Shah Rukh while working on his movie Ra.One. I told him all about our charity that is being supported by two big luminaries and he was more than keen to support. SRK is a silent benefactor and he too will be with us in this cause.”
