It was a moment of pride for Shraddha Kapoor as was felicitated with the Youth Icon of NextGen of Indian Cinema award at the 48th International Film festival Of India held in Goa.
After spending a great amount of time in Goa while shooting for films namely Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain, the starlet was recently given the award of the Youth Icon of NextGen of Indian Cinema at the recently held IFFI in Goa. Filmmaker Subhash Ghai did the honours of giving away the award to the starlet.
Sharing her happiness on her win, she added, “I love Goa and have spent good amlunt of time here earlier. Goa has been extremely warm to our film industry. I would like to thank IFFI for inviting me here.”
The starlet was accompanied by her aunty Padmini Kolhapure. Here, films will be showcased to the public through a unique mobile theatres models till 27 November. Shradhha’s megahit Aashiqui 2 was the first to be screened here.
Her recent film Haseena Parker, based on terrorist Dawood Ibrahim’s sister, raised a lot of eyebrows and speculations. However, the starlet still has no regrets in doing a film like this, “I think you just want to try doing something different. Whether it does well or doesn’t do well, it is not in your hand but I wanted to try something else.”
Now, working towards her next big film, she will be playing the role of Saina Nehwal, yet another awaited biopic.
This diva also turns several eyes on the social media platforms with her girl-next-door posts. Also, she believes in a lot of social service…
Love for pets

Fun times with the kids
Today I was lucky to spend sometime with these amazing kids at Prabhadevi Municipal School. Most of the kids in government schools come from slum communities near Worli. Their parents are either unemployed, labourers, street vendors, blue-collar workers, etc. Many come from emotionally, physically or sexually abusive families and have been in physically traumatic situations. What Pehlay Akshar (an NGO)does: Most NGOs come with an intention to create more equity in the society through education. Pehlay Akshar does it by ensuring that our kids can speak English well, and are not kept away from jobs that they want to be in, inspite of having all other skills. They also aim to create a safe space for the kids in the classroom and make learning fun, so that the kids seek more and more of knowledge, rather than us having to force them to study. Schooling is just one accept of our work. They also train government teachers in the Pehlay Akshar ideology to create a multiplier effect of new age learning. CHECK LINK IN BIO 💕
