Prakash Raj funds girl's UK education, helps her secure job
Prakash Raj, who's generally known for his performances as an antagonist, has proved to be a real life hero for someone, a Dalit girl. The acclaimed actor sponsored her education in the UK. Not only that, after she got her Master's degree, he also gave her financial assistance to secure a job in that country. Raj's benevolent act was shared by director Naveen Mohamedali.
Why does it matter?
- The Iruvar actor has always been vocal when it comes to matters involving the oppressed class, in his social media spaces and during his public appearances.
- And with this act of funding a Dalit girl's education, he has proved that he stands by his statements.
- Also, since celebrities are emulated in this country, such responsible gestures go a long way to promote humanity.
Director Naveen Mohamedali had shared an article with Raj
Mohamedali, who had directed the pretty well-received film Moodar Koodam, shared the details online. It all happened in March 2020, when he had passed on an article from Round Table India, which had information about this girl's education getting stuck because of monetary issues, to Raj, requesting some contribution. Raj then talked to the uncle of Srichandana, the girl, who doesn't have a father.
Apart from Mohamedali, director Cheran too applauded Raj
After learning about her situation, Raj readily agreed to fund the girl's education. Thanking him, Mohamedali wrote, "Thanks and salutes to this man Prakash Raj. He has financially helped Srichandana, a fatherless poor meritorious Dalit girl, secure her admission in (a) UK university, finish her masters and now funded for her to find a job there too." National Award-winning director Cheran too applauded Raj.
