Actress Kajol, who stars in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, tweeted about an endearing episode that took place during a screening of the movie in Mumbai recently. As per a tweet by Meena Iyer, journalist and CEO of Ajay Devgn Films, who shared a newspaper cutting, a group of young cancer patients arrived at Mumbai’s Hindmata Cinema to watch a show of Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior. The news article reported that due to miscommunication, the kids arrived for a regular show instead of special screenings that have been organised for cancer patients. The news article reported that viewers, who were already in the theatre for the show, left their seats for the kids: “Almost every person in the hall left to accommodate the children.”
Sharing Meena Iyer’s tweet, Kajol wrote: “That’s humanity. That’s what we should be working towards. Getting it back.”
That’s humanity. That’s what we should be working towards. Getting it back. https://t.co/GPAa2bB0H3
