Bollywood actor Jackky Bhagnani, who made a faux pas last year when he misspelt Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai's name as 'Masala' in a tweet, got a chance to meet the Pakistani activist in London on Thursday. He considered the meeting as his “dream” and called Malala his “hero”.

New Delhi: Famous producer Vashu Bhagnani's son actor Jackky Bhagnani has made news, this time not for his films but for a rather special meeting. 

The 'Youngistan' star met the Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai in London recently and even took to Twitter to share the pictures with his fans. He tweeted:

Jackky had earlier made a blooper and missplet Malala's name on the social media platform, however did apologise for it later through a video. Jackky met the Pakistani activist in London on Thursday. 

“For me things have come a full circle. From an auto-correct mistake to a birthday video tribute to a dream meeting with one of my heroes. Malala is not just an inspiration but a living example of how to fight with courage and determination,” Jackky, who left for London on Monday, said in a statement. “Her humility is touching and her sincerity is what makes her the leader that she is. Malala is a celebration of the human spirit and this meeting was an opportunity for me to experience that,” he added.

Malala says Jackky's video was the “first thing” she saw on her birthday, which “made my day.” 

“The support encourages me to go on further as I know I'm not a lone girl in this mission of wanting girls to get quality education. I'm very thankful to Jackky and the team that made this video.” Malala added.
