Bollywood star Katrina Kaif was spotted at an event hosted by Picture Pathshala, an organisation that produces content made by children and supports children's cinema for change.
"I think it's really very special to be able to do something like this in a fun way, and in a way where you are allowing kids to interact and participate, and listen to what they want to talk about," said Katrina. She also expressed curiosity over how Picture Pathshala was started and what inspired the founders.
Co-founded by Shweta Parekh and Ayaan Agnihotri, Picture Pathshala has produced 200 short films in the last five years, which have been screened across 47 International film festivals. Scenes from some of the short films were screened at the event.
The organisers of the event also used the occasion to thank Salman Khan's Being Human Foundation and Book A Smile for supporting them over the years. Present at the event were also Salman's sister Alvira and her husband Atul Agnihotri, Salman's brothers Sohail and Arbaaz Khan, and Sunil Grover.
Picture Pathshala's initiative 'Cinema School In A Sandook' has reached out to Cherivali village in Raigadh, Pinguli Village in Sindhudurg, Raisar village in Bikaner, Dandi Village in Navsari, and the last village of India Turtuk in Ladakh. They are now planning to arrange similar workshops in Jaisalmer, Assam, West Bengal and Kanyakumari.
