Most directors today are very keen on the promotion of their films just before the release date. Prakash Jha entertained and displayed the underbelly of Indian politics last year with Raajneeti and this time he has come up with another social problem that is eroding the young India in its own way. Aarakshan is soon going to hit the theatres and to promote it Prakash Jha and the cast and crew of Aarakshan decided to start some interesting promotional way to get more audience into movie halls. This time they decided to turn everybody into teachers.
So, guess what? They all decided to give some kind of lessons at the Welingkar Institute in Mumbai. This was definitely a moment of pride for the students there and they were more than happy to see the Big B live in front of them. Soon after everybody settled down there were debates and workshops and some interesting entertainment talks that happened between the cast and crew of Aarakshan and the students of Welingkar Institute.
The workshop began with Manoj Bajpai who taught some acting skills to students. Deepika Padukone was the next on the list who gave dancing lessons to the students. Saif Ali Khan played some guitar and Prateik Babbar taught some graffiti lessons. The music trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy imparted some music lessons to students. Prakash Jha decided to enjoy the debate session rather than teaching lessons to students. Amitabh Bacchan who was still the center of attraction and chief guest at the event shared some of his early day memories which was kind of him. After the debate and workshops were over the students decided to honor the megastar with black convocation gown.
Later, Amitabh Bacchan handed over the certificates to the students at the convocation ceremony and encouraged the students in his own little way. Amitabh also spoke about the movie and said that film revolves around issue of reservation in government jobs and educational institutions which has soon become a hot topic across the nation.
