The Oscar winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty has brought together the top two Bollywood icons, Shahrukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan with Hollywood actress Judi Dench for a noble cause. All these biggies have joined hands to spread education among the underprivileged in India.
They will promote education among the low-income group and explain the fact that educating their children is the sole way to get a better way to life and future. Pookutty's foundation has been silently working towards the growth of socio-economic status of India. The foundation has now planned to gear up the noble cause. Resul expressed to TOI, “It is unimaginable that even in the 21st century there is rampant illiteracy in India. We are making our presence felt in the world and this aspect is something that should definitely be tackled. Along with economy and cultural boom, India should not be spoken as a country that is also illiteracy stricken."
Resul revealed that Amitabh has been acting as a parent to the project by helping him with funds and goodness. He said that he was planning for new ideas when Judi Dench helped him draw plans for the eradication of poverty in India. Judi was in India while shooting for her film in Rajasthan, she was moved by poverty in India and extended her hands to help Resul's cause.
Talking about Judi, Resul told TOI that, “Judi has told me to draw plans and just tell her what is to be done and she will try her level best to do more than what has been asked of her."
The sound magician said that Shahrukh Khan was very keen to extend his support for the cause when he came to know about the project during the shootings of the film Ra.One.
Definitely, with all these plans and efforts, India will soon see the sunshine of that day when poverty will totally be eradicated from the roots of our country.
