Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, who was honoured with the prestigious Yusr Award at the Red Sea International Festival, also received words of high praise from Hollywood star Sharon Stone.
Actor Ranveer Singh has launched the second song of his music label IncInk. “Paathshala”, the song raises pertinent questions about the education system of India.
IncInk, the joint venture between Singh and Navzar Eranee, has hand-picked rap/hip-hop artistes Kaam Bhaari (Kunal Pandagale), SlowCheetah (Chaitanya Sharma) and Spitfire for launch.
“Paathshala” marks the debut of Spitfire (real name Nitin Mishra), who is seen singing and acting in the video.
The song is his own life-story and how he found the strength to break through stereotypes and discover his real identity. Mishra sings about education and learning and about setting himself free.
“This song got my attention because it is actually about how the birth of Spitfire, the performer, saved Nitin Mishra. Our society has stratified rigid methods of education, learning and consider these the ultimate benchmark of a person’s abilities. We disagree,” Ranveer said in a statement.
Eranee added: “Being yourself is considered an act of revolution in today’s culture. Art and expression free us from the conditions of our lives.”
