AHMEDABAD: "Aaj mujhe bahut majaa aaya.. peheli baar, mere saare dost ke saath maine picture dekhi," said little Sarfaraz after watching Chak De India with 350 other children. In fact, he could not remember the last time he had seen a film in a movie theatre!
The movie experience was indeed what it was meant to be – A Movie’ing Experience – one of the many initiatives started by ‘aProCh’ (A Protagonist in every Child), a city organisation working toward making Ahmedabad a child friendly city.
Veena Purohit, owner of City Pulse Multiplex said: "We are very happy to open up our spaces for the children who don’t get such experiences – and City Pulse is pleased to become a ‘friend of the child".
City Pulse not only sponsored the show for 350 children, but also has agreed to partner with ‘aProCh’ to show 150 underprivileged children a movie every month!
