The silver screen diva Rani Mukherjee is all set to play a new role as she endorses Procter & Gamble's Shiksha programme. The bollywood queen has urged everyone to educate as many as possible and contribute to the noble cause. Rani, who describes herself as “not such a studious student in school”, feels that education should be made more interesting so that kids grab it more easily. “School is as important as drinking water and education is as important as the air we breathe. So, I feel that initiatives like Shiksha that support the cause of education are incredible, and I feel we should all contribute even if it's a little bit because if we do that India will have 100 per cent literacy rate one day,” Rani told reporters here. “It's my dream too that every child in India is educated because the way India is growing I don't think without education, we can see a very bright future. So if we want a bright future for our country, I think education is foremost,” she added. “It's very important to make education interesting and enjoyable so that students don't drop out. Also, focus should not be only on academics. Alternate interests like painting, music, etc., should also be encouraged,” she said.
