It was popcorn and movie afternoon for some 40 children from a Kuala Lumpur-based Sikh orphanage in Kuala Lumpur.
The children from Gurpuri Foundation were feted to the movie Kesari, courtesy of Sri Saheb Production Sdn Bhd which brought the war-drama film to the local theaters.
“We brought the older kids as they can appreciate the movie,” Gurpuri Foundation founder Sukhdav Singh told Asia Samachar. The Kuala Lumpur orphanage is home to 90 children.
Founded in 2000, Gurpuri Foundation provides orphaned and neglected children a ‘loving and caring environment where they can blossom into responsible adults’.
Kesari, which started screening globally on 21 March, is starred Akshay Kumar. It is based on a true courageous story of 21 Sikh soldiers who fought valiantly and bravely against 10,000 invaders at Saragarhi.
In India, it has become the fastest film in 2019 to cross Rs 100 crore mark, overtaking Gully Boy and Total Dhamaal that crossed this benchmark in eight and nine days, respectively.
