Ali Zafar, the Pakistani actor and singer, who's new film Kill Dil got a lukewarm reception on the box office, will now champion the cause of girl-child education.

He has announced that he will bear the cost of higher education of 50 underprivileged girls in Lahore.

Education is the key to progress, he said at a function held at Sanjan Nagar in Lahore.

"I will bear cost for higher education of 50 underprivileged girls from Sanjan Nagar. Education is key to progress," said Ali, who has worked in Bollywood films like Tere Bin Laden and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan.

He added: "Let's all inspire and motivate each other by doing more good than the other. Let's compete in generosity. For those asking, Sanjan Nagar is based in Lahore. Everyone can contribute."

The Sanjan Nagar Public Education Trust is an NGO that works for girl-child education.
