1 min read

Bollywood star Alia Bhatt has come forward to support an initiative to raise funds through a painting exhibition for children suffering from heart diseases.

"I have been told that kids are more positive than adults because they don't know how bad the situation is and they don't have a negative frame of mind. I feel that's the reason they get cured faster," said Alia, while inaugurating the exhibition named Art for the Heart at Bai Jerbai Wadia Hospital for Children in Mumbai on Wednesday.

A video has surfaced of Alia at the hospital, asking the photographers to be silent as there’s a commotion that takes place when the actor starts posing for photographs.


Sharing her thoughts after inaugurating the exhibition, Alia said: "I visited Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of this hospital, which is Asia's largest unit, and it's a really good and proud thing for all of us. It's the first year of 'Art for the Heart' initiative, where they are raising funds through this painting exhibition, so that they can carry out heart surgery of kids."
