Considering that Tiger Shroff has immense fan following amongst kids, the actor has not only become the face of brands targeted towards kids but he is also working for the development of these children. Tiger has joined hands with Procter & Gamble’s CSR program P&G Shiksha that aims at providing education to underprivileged children.
Now in its 13th year, P&G Shiksha continues to take its program ahead with ‘Shiksha Superheroes’ – a campaign to acknowledge consumers, the real-life superheroes who make a simple brand choice of buying P&G products and contribute to this noble cause impacting the lives of thousands of underprivileged children. Joining the movement this year, multi-talented star Tiger Shroff donned the avatar of ‘Shiksha Superhero’ for the students of a P&G Shiksha School. Tiger emphasized on the importance of education in the lives of children.
Speaking on the occasion, Tiger Shroff said, “This is the first time that I have associated with P&G Shiksha and I am delighted to witness the difference that this movement has made by building and supporting more than one thousand schools that will impact the lives of more than one million children across India. It felt amazing to interact with these young kids who have a bright future ahead of them.”
During the event, he also shared his school memories with the enthusiastic children of a P&G Shiksha School and urged them to engage themselves in every activity in school – be it sports, dancing, dramatics and so on. Tiger, who is not only an actor, but is excellently skilled in martial arts, gymnastics and dance, emphasized on the importance of extra-curricular activities for their holistic development. “I relate this with my own experience in school, where I participated actively in dancing and various sports activities. Extra-curricular activities and academics go hand in hand and these students must use every opportunity they get to refine their talent and never give up,” he added.
It was wonderful to see the excitement in the little kids as they danced along with him to the music from his upcoming film. He also taught the students a few interesting self-defense techniques and was impressed with the confidence and intelligence showcased by them.
