It is every child’s right to get the basic education, and so does Sushant Singh Rajput thinks as well. He’s taken a decision to provide free education to the children who are underprivileged.
Talking about the same, SSR told IANS, “My team is working on the idea where we are selecting a group of schools, and we will take a merit test of the kids. If the kids pass the exam, we will take care of their education cost for a year. Next year, they again have to sit for the test to get the free education. This is the first step and will work on other models. But I think this process will give kids a new excitement and encouragement to study and make them more competitive.”
Sushant had a dream of studying abroad in his earlier days, which he couldn’t fulfill due to financial problems. But otherwise, he was always the studious kid who cleared many engineering exams.
When he got asked about his opinion on the importance of education, he said, “My mother always taught me that we educate our children not to become a doctor or engineer, but the impact of basic education reflects on their thought process and decision making. So even if you are getting into a creative profession like acting, your basic education will open your mind enough to think analytically. Therefore, I have taken this small step towards providing basic education to deserving children.”
On Sushant’s work front, he’s busy with the promotions of ‘Raabta’ which releases on the 9th of June.
