To commemorate the 152nd Gandhi Jayanti, Byju’s released ‘Bapu Ki Awaz’, a special film that celebrates Gandhiji’s thoughts and ideals. Featuring veteran actor and Padma Shri awardee Manoj Kumar, this film celebrates four real-life heroes who have gone above and beyond to carry forward the legacy and philosophy left behind by Mahatma Gandhi in their everyday lives.

Invoking a deep sense of nostalgia, this film also marks veteran actor Padma Shri awardee Manoj Kumar’s return to the screen after 25 years as a doting grandfather who brings to life the virtues of his “favourite hero”, Bapu, by celebrating exceptional people who walk among us today.

The short film:

Conceptualised by Byju’s in-house team, Bapu Ki Awaz digital film celebrates the inspiring stories of extraordinary Indians who have brought about an impactful change in the lives of others by following in Bapu’s footsteps and imbibing his ideals, values and principles. It showcases the exemplary work done by four real-life heroes - Dr Sapan Kumar Patralekh, headmaster of a school in Jharkhand who converted roadside clay walls into blackboards to continue teaching students during the pandemic; Dr Ganesh Rakh, a doctor with a mission to save girl children; Padma Shri Jamuna Tudu, who fought the jungle mafia to safeguard over 100+ acres of forests, and Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Bal Puraskar awardee Kameshwar Waghmare, a 14-year old who saved two kids from drowning. These individuals and their persistence has proved time and again that we can create a better world for everyone to live in.

Vineet Singh, VP, Brand and Creative Strategy, Byju’s, said, “Mahatma Gandhi’s values and principles are held in high regard across the world. His teachings on Satya, Ahimsa, and Sarvodya have always encouraged millions of people. With this digital film, we at BYJU’S want to pay an ode to the Father of our Nation and inspire everyone to evoke their inner Gandhi. By bringing forth the stories of these real-life heroes, we intend to encourage our next generation to follow the path of righteousness."
