Giving back to society

A recipient of the Padma Shri Award, Anupam’s critical and commercial success spans over 100 plays and almost 400 films. While Anupam’s accomplishments as an actor are well known, it is his determination to use his eminence to help India’s children go to school and learn well, that has led to this appointment.

Anupam will also be hosting the foundation’s informative and educational TV programme called Angrezi OK Please. “I have always been drawn to the cause of children’s education, which is why I have founded a School Of Life programme. By becoming Pratham’s public face, I hope to augment in its fundraising, capacity enhancement and other initiatives dedicated to the cause of children’s education,” said Anupam Kher. As its ambassador, Anupam will undertake a planned trip to the USA later this year to meet with and encourage supporters of the organisation in association with Pratham’s USA chapter.

Anupam, who runs Anupam Kher Foundation, which was founded in April 2008, also has a programme module called School Of Life for educating the street children of Mumbai.

Anupam has also taken to educating budding artists in acting skills in a big way through his initiative — Actor Prepares.
