Bollywood actor Siddharth Malhotra, along with cricketer Virat Kohli, has been chosen as the brand ambassador of Prime minister’s initiative Skill India. “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 was started by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 15 July 2015, with an aim to empower the youth with skills and ability to tackle global challenges. Siddharth Malhotra and Virat Kohli have joined the ‘God of Cricket’ Sachin Tendulkar for the endorsement of Skill India Campaign.
“I truly believe that this will provide the much-needed direction to the aspiring youth of India,” said Siddharth.
