Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2020: Kareena Kapoor Khan reads out senior runner up essay extract

Sharing a video for the same, the actor wrote. "My first read… with more to come."

As was informed, Kareena Kapoor Khan recently read out an essay as part of The Queen’s Commonwealth Essay Competition 2020. Titled The Waters Rise by Ananya Mukerji, it was the senior runner up and is told from a young boy’s perspective. Hailing from a family of fishermen, he demands accountability for the rising climate change and refuses to be reduced to statistics. They might be less in number but that does not make them any less significant, the narrator in the essay proclaimed.

Sharing a video of the same, the actor wrote. “My first read… with more to come. Thank you @royalcwsociety and the Duchess of Cornwall for this honour. And thank you for everything @gorakhpoori.”
