Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu revisited her school in Delhi on Friday to promote self-defence classes, especially for the girls.

Taapsee visited Mata Jai Kaur Public School, and was welcomed by senior officials and teachers who had taught her over the years.

“It was a nostalgia beyond words. My teachers and students organised such a beautiful event to welcome me,” the Pink star said in a statement.

“They not only made my morning special but lived up to my expectations of starting self defence classes in school. They showed me a demo class. I was impressed by their efforts and hope our combined efforts encourage more and more kids to join the classes,” she said.

Addressing students, Taapsee urged them to engage themselves in every activity in school and use every opportunity to refine their talent, and to never give up. She related this with her own experience in the school, where she participated actively in debates, dance, dramatics and various sports activities.

Two months ago, Taapsee had taken up the initiative with her school administrator to help introduce self defence as a compulsory extra-curricular subject. And to give the actress a dekko at its progress, a karate summer camp demonstration by the students was displayed.
