Students hold special prayer in Sherwood College
The announcement of Amitabh Bachchan as this year’s recipient of Dadasaheb Phalke award was greeted with a wave of joy in his alma mater Sherwood College here. The students of the school could be seen delivering some famous dialogues of his movies in celebration of the development. They were also seen dancing to some popular songs of his movies. A special prayer was also held in the school chapel to pray for good health and long life of the famous actor. At the prayer meet, the school principal Amandeep Sandhu said that Bachchan had made his school proud.
The school has had several occasions to feel proud of him so far. Sandhu said, “When Bachchan was studying here, who could have known that he would earn fame across the nation and abroad. Similarly, the children currently studying in the school could one day become as famous as Bachchan, for which they should take inspiration from him too. So passionate was Bachchan about acting that he won the school’s prestigious Kendal cup for dramatics twice. He experienced many difficult situations in his life but did not give up and kept on moving ahead, which is why he is an inspiration for the students,” said the school principal. Along with the students, officials of the school were also among those present on the occasion.
