Team “Aranyadeb” supports ‘Save a Child’s Heart’ project

Kolkata, February 15, 2015 (Washington Bangla Radio): : The cast and crew of upcoming Tollywood flick ‘Aranyadeb’  came together at an event dedicated to children and launched its merchandise items which included coffee mugs, paper caps and other things.

The event titled as “Save a Child Heart” was organized by the Chemould School of Art in association with the Kolkata Police and Rotary club and was held at Ripon Street. As a part of the programme, around 2000 children were involved in a sit-and-draw competition, which were later auctioned. The uniqueness of the programme was that the proceeds of the auction would go towards saving children having heart problems.
