A top official revealed on Wednesday that officials from other states are interested in the Telangana government’s plan to broadcast Richard Attenborough’s “Gandhi” to thousands of schoolchildren as part of commemorating the country’s 75th anniversary. They want to know how the state government is showing the movie to 22 lakh schoolchildren on such a massive scale, in 552 theatres, according to state Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar.

An official statement stated that the Chief Secretary mingled with the kids who came to see the movie at a mall in the city. He advised the kids to write an in-depth essay about the movie’s effect on them. If required, the film’s showing would be prolonged, according to Kumar.

The goal, according to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, is for schoolchildren to view the movie and get inspiration for the nation’s freedom battle. In celebration of 75 years of independence, ruling TRS MLC K Kavitha planted seedlings at a school in the city’s Domalguda neighbourhood. According to a GHMC press release, 75 “Freedom Parks” will be created throughout the city as part of the event.

Talasani Srinivas Yadav, the state’s minister of animal husbandry, opened a “Freedom Park” in the city’s Jubilee Hills, according to the report. The municipal organisation also announced that twice daily — in the morning and evening — 10 parks will play patriotic music.
