Hindi film actor Jackky Bhagnani, who made a faux pas last year when he misspelled Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai’s name as ‘Masala’ in a tweet, has made a video to wish the Pakistani activist on her birthday which is on Sunday.
The video, titled “Happy Birthday Malala | Ye Malala Ke Baare Mein Hai, masala ke baare mein nahi!” features Jackky accepting his mistake and teaching a group of children about Yousafzai’s contribution to children’s education, read a statement.
He is also seen explaining the difference between ‘nobel’ and ‘noble’ to the children in the six-minute video, which was shot with #fame, a live video entertainment platform.
On October 10, 2014, the day Yousafzai was presented with the Nobel Peace Prize, Jackky had shared on his Twitter page: “Such good news to hear about masala and the noble peace price. My speech in #Youngistaan was inspired by her.”
Later in the video, the “Youngistaan” actor, along with the children wish Yousafzai a “Happy Birthday” and thank her for her contribution towards children’s education rights and for her struggle for education and against extremism.
Yousufzai, who will turn 18 on Sunday, is the Pakistani girl child education campaigner who was shot nearly fatally in 2012 by a Taliban gunman. She won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize along with Indian children’s rights activist Kailash Satyarthi.
