International Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur tweeted about our work of forest restoration to create awareness about the need of the hour. Shekhar is known for his Oscar-winning movie Elizabeth, Bandit Queen, Mr. India, and Masoom, which have touched the hearts of Billions of people across the world. Shekhar's film career revolved around presenting the most innermost human connections as part of the mainstream cinemas. Elizabeth revolved around the newly throned British Queen Elizabeth I and how a woman of that era had to face enormous prejudice to be respected as the Queen. Bandit Queen is the famous biographical about the Indian outlaw Phoolan Devi who goes on a rampage to avenge against her mass gangrape. Mr. India revolves around an orphanage running gentleman who is bestowed with a superpower that helps him rescue his adopted children. Masoom presents a wonderful story of a son conceived out of wedlock and his acceptance to his father's family. All these movies are the evergreen collection of Hollywood and Bollywood masterpieces.
