Television actor Mukesh Khanna said that the government should make film education a part of school curriculum.
“It is not enough to just make films for children but it is important to ensure that they are screened in theatres. Content of films for children should be good in order to educate and entertain them. Minimum amount of investment and maximum story-telling should be our motto,” said the actor.
