Actress Taapsee Pannu has created a buzz after she gifted a Phone to a student in Karnataka who secured 94 per cent in pre-university college (PUC) exams and needed a smartphone to study further.
The girl needed a smartphone because in light of the COVID-19, classes and training sessions have moved online. Her family has a basic phone and couldn't afford a smartphone. Reportedly, the girl's father had urged people to help him buy a smartphone for supporting the education of her daughter. Soon after, Taapsee came forward to help them.
"We need more girls to study. We need every child to study. We need more doctors. This is my small effort in making sure our country has a better tomorrow," NDTV quoted Taapsee’s tweet.
The phone was delivered to the girl on Thursday. She found out about her new phone when she came back home after taking the Common Entrance Test -- an entrance exam held for admission to professional colleges in Karnataka.
Onn receiving the phone, the girl said she could not have imagined that she would get an iPhone and her target is to clear NEET.
"I got the phone from Taapsee ma'am. It's an iPhone which I can't believe. I could not even have imagined this! I will work hard and try to clear NEET (Medical entrance exam). Let your blessings be with me," the girl told the news portal.
