New  Delhi & Mumbai:  After the joyful success last year, ‘5000 Popcorns’ returned to kick start the festive cheer in New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Pune and Bengaluru, which witnessed packed cinema   auditoriums with 5000 children sitting transfixed to watch the heart warming ‘Hawaa  Hawaai’, an Amole Gupte film.

It brought together 5000 children from not for profit and community schools in  one of the largest simultaneous movie screenings across cities. The children enjoyed the  film that takes you through the wonder years of childhood while skilfully weaving in  messages on the strength of friendship and the power of dreaming. It’s an inspiring story of overcoming all odds and realizing one’s dreams.

Speaking on the occasion, Ms Sandhya Vasudevan, Chief Operating Officer for Deutsche  Bank in India, said, “After the stirring and warm response in the last two years, we at  Deutsche Bank are pleased to once again bring in the Christmas and New Year’s cheer  to children through the magic of cinema, even while sharing a beautiful and inspiring  social message. We are delighted with the enthusiastic response we have received from  the children and NGOs.”

Ms. Deepa Menon, Senior Vice President- Corporate Social Responsibility at PVR  Limited said “We are extremely happy to partner with Deutsche Bank through ‘5000  Popcorns’ and being able to bring entertainment to such a large number of children. Such  platforms enable children to explore their talents on a broader canvas. It is not just about  entertainment, PVR Nest, through its creative education programs has aimed at  nourishing children’s creativity and building their capacities on film making and publishing  of over 1,00,000 children from 100 city schools each year.”
