The famous Scindia School in Gwalior has quite a few illustrious names in its alumni list. One of the prominent names in there is of Salman Khan. Others from Bollywood — such as film-maker Anurag Kashyap, and Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan — also studied at the school.

Now, it seems, Salman is all set to revisit his school, when he travels to the city as part of the promotional tour planned for his next film, Jai Ho. The actor is believed to have insisted on including Gwalior in the list of cities he is touring, just so he can revisit the school. “Salman himself has requested the inclusion of Gwalior in the itinerary,” reveals a source.

It has apparently been a while since Salman visited the school, and, the source says that he’s looking forward to meeting the current batch of students. Salman’s film is believed to have a message of helping people in need, so he wanted to spread the word in his school as well. “Salman is known to be fond of children. So he wants to talk to the students and inspire them to help people in need as well,” the source adds.

When contacted, the spokesperson of the film confirms this development and says, “Salman has made a request to visit Gwalior, so that he can go to his school there. We are currently in the planning stages for the same.”
