Actor Sonu Sood will become the brand ambassador for the Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government's "Desh Ke Mentors" programme, which is expected to be launched soon.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Sood addressed a joint press conference on August 27, following a meeting in the national capital.
"Today, I have been given an opportunity to mentor lakhs of students. There is no greater service than guiding students. I am sure together we can and we will," said Sood.
AAP tweeted that under the programme, 3 lakh young professionals will guide and mentor 10 lakh Delhi government school students.
Kejriwal also said the Delhi government would soon come up with "the most progressive" film policy in India, which would give a boost to the entertainment industry.
Sood said that he had not discussed politics with Kejriwal, in response to a question about the Punjab Assembly polls in 2022.
The actor is also the brand ambassador for the Congress-led Punjab government's COVID-19 vaccination programme.
