Actor Sidharth Malhotra shared his happiness on being named as the brand ambassador for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Skill India Campaign. The actor was happy to help the government and said that he was excited to promote the initiative.
"Skill India Mission is a great platform to provide assistance and guidance to the abundant talent India possesses. I am really excited and kicked to be a part of this initiative and happy to help the government," Sidharth said in a statement.
The initiative aims to encourage and support the youth to a skilful nation. The actor, along with star cricketer Virat Kohli, has joined the bandwagon with legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who also endorses the campaign.
"I truly believe that this will provide the much needed direction to the aspiring youth of India," Sidharth added.
The actor was last seen in ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ alongside Katrina Kaif. Directed by Nitya Mehra, the film doomed at the box office. Sidharth will next be seen in an action flick opposite Jacqueline Fernandez.
