LAHORE: Singer-actor Ali Zafar celebrated the success of his latest film Kill Dil in Lahore with underprivileged children, according to a press release.

Ali, who starred in the Shaad Ali movie alongside Bollywood actors Raveer Singh, Govinda and Parineeti Chopra, hosted a special screening last weekend for 50 students from Sanjan Nagar, a school for underprivileged students.

The school was awarded the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP) status formally on October 20 this year making it the sixth overall IB campus in the country and the second one at primary level with 700 students.

At the occasion, the actor shared that the school provides quality education to underprivileged students at a highly subsidised fee, charging Rs1,000 per month, while other schools charge Rs30,000.

“I am delighted to extend my support to this worthy cause by announcing scholarships for 50 students at higher secondary level which will hopefully enable them to not only get their high school diploma but will give them a chance to pursue a more productive and qualitatively better life,” Ali said.

Each IB authorised school in Pakistan has a monthly fee of around Rs35,000 to Rs50,000 per month in addition to other costs.

“I would like to encourage others as well to visit the Sanjan Nagar campus and see the fruits of the labour, generousity and commitment of the patron, trustees, school management and other friends and supporters who have made this possible,” the actor said.

“We have a habit to ask God to give us things we desire and when He does, we forget. I don’t want to do that. Hence, I am taking the responsibility for the education of 50 children who will support 50 families. And I would urge everybody who has been given that status by God to do as much as they can for more kids from Sanjan Nagar or wherever they can find deserving children. They are our future. It is upon us to secure it,” he added.

Responding to a question about his latest film, Ali said, “Let this occasion be for these kids and not me. I get the spot light all the time, let the spot light be on them and this cause. The reason for all this is to inspire and motivate more people to give back to the society.”
