Prince Charles invites ‘Kalam’ to Buckingham Palace
Mumbai: National and international award winning film `I am Kalam`, produced by Smile Foundation has moved Prince of Wales so much so that he has invited the filmmaker to showcase a special screening at the Buckingham Palace.
Apparently, bad man of Bollywood and veteran actor Gulshan Grover had written a letter to the Prince about what the film is all about and how it deals with promotion of education in India. And his highness was more than happy to welcome the film for its social message.
The film revolves round the life of Chhotu, a Rajasthani boy, who wishes to be someone like ex-Indian president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. In real life Chhotu aka Harsh Mayar is a Delhi slum dweller.
Harsh won the National Film Award for Best Child Artist 2011 for his outstanding performance. Ironically, the boy was rejected at the `Chillar Party` audition.
Losing out on `Chillar Party` came as a blessing in disguise for this little star, who is now on his way to the Buckingham Palace and will have Prince Charles following his work. What else could have Harsh asked for!
