Meannwhile, Vijay Raaz will also be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi.
The talented actor was recently spotted at Bhansali’s office. When quizzed on the same, he said on Monday: “There is a film called ‘Gangubai’. I play a small part in it.”
Vijay Raaz was speaking on the sidelines of the launch event of an educational app named STEPapp.
Talking about the app, the actor said, “This is a gamified learning app. The purpose is to teach educational subjects like maths and science to kids through games. A big plus point of this initiative is that it is offering scholarships to students. The idea is to reach out to kids in the most remote areas where kids do not have access to conventional forms of education due to lack of resources and other problems. There are many areas which lacks schools, even if school is there, there are not adequate number of teachers. But mobile phone is everywhere. So, we want to use this technology to reach to that person where we cannot reach physically.”
