Mumbai, Nov 11: ‘Piku’ star Irrfan Khan will be in his hometown Jaipur to lend support to the National Children’s Film Festival (NCFF), organised by Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI).
The fest is themed on ‘Make In India’.
Irffan wants to send across the state a message to allow more content to be created for the children of India.
“Globally, there is a huge focus on content for children but there’s a significant gap we have for this content in India,” Irrfan said in a statement.
He strongly feels that it is important for him as an actor to support such initiatives.
“Being an actor, it’s important we support such initiatives as much as we can and hoping people take note of it and thus get encouraged to be at the helm of creating more content for this audience,” he said.
The inaugural event of the three-day gala will begin on November 14 at the Birla Auditorium in Jaipur.
