Mumbai, October 30th 2017: Mukul Madhav Foundation, the CSR arm of Finolex Industries Limited, arranged an interactive session between underprivileged children from Samajik Vikas Kendra Social Development Centre, Malad, Mumbai (an NGO selflessly working for the overall development of underprivileged slum/street dwelling children from Mumbai since 12 years), and the cast of Golmaal Again i.e Rohit Shetty, Tabu, Parineeti Chopra, Arshad Warsi, Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor, Kunal Khemu. The talented star cast were able to empower and enlighten the children through their acting journeys during the interactive session and created a special memory for the kids for days to come.
These 20 children met with the actors amid much fanfare, as the MMF and Finolex Industries team transported the excited kids from the institution to the venue. The children were able to have an insightful conversation with the actors, who helped them realise that their dreams can become a reality in this life.
On the occasion, Ms. Ritu Chhabria, Director- Finolex Industries Ltd. and Managing TrusteeMukul Madhav Foundation said, “I am really glad and thankful to the stars for turning up and meeting these wonderful kids. MMF has been associated with Samajik Vikas Kendra Social Development Centre for a long time now and it was definitely a moment of joy for these children to meet the stars and spend an evening with them. This would not have been possible without the support of Finolex Industries who made all the arrangements for these children to come here today. My heartfelt thanks to them!”
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Rohit Shetty said; “It is a great pleasure to see the excitement and enthusiasm of the children to meet their favorite actors. This initiative has surely helped to uplift the spirits of the actors and the children alike. These naughty kids have certainly shared a lot of positive energy with the whole crew with their undying spirit and energy. We will go back with a lot of positive memories of the event. I also thank Mukul Madhav Foundation for giving us this opportunity and appreciate their commitment and work being done for these children.
