Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle Khanna shared this photo with caption, "Growing up, as you can see not only did I have the same hairstyle as my class teacher( why? why? why?) but studying and doing well was very important to me and it all helped me to become an independent woman. 2/5 girls still don’t complete school. Let’s ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india to give every girl #TheRightStart - I nominate @sonamkapoor @tahirakashyap @akshaykumar to take this further by sharing their school memories."

Akshay Kumar

Sharing this photo, Akshay Kumar wrote, "Growing up I was always inclined towards sports and my mother would ensure I got nutritious home-cooked meals to fuel my passion. But it’s a privilege that millions of street children do not have access to. 11,72,604 children in India can’t afford even a single meal a day! It’s time to ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india. I nominate @balanvidya @aslisona @taapsee @nithyamenen @iamkirtikulhari." (Photo: Akshay Kumar/Instagram)

Sonam Kapoor wrote with her photo, "My school days were some of my happiest memories. I believe that education is the one path to true independence and freedom. We should all be asking #WhyTheGap and working towards #TheRightStart for every child. I nominate @arjunk26 @ReallySwara and @dulQuer to join @stc_india." (Photo: Sonam Kapoor/Twitter)

Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu shared this one and wrote, "Sports have been an integral part of my life. School race tracks became my war zone every year and thanks to a supportive family and encouraging school teachers I could have my moment of glory. Unfortunately many kids don’t have that support system #WhyTheGap @stc_india." (Photo: Taapsee Pannu/Instagram)

Tahira Kashyap

Tahira Kashyap's photo caption read, "Thank you @twinklerkhanna for nominating me. Though I am rocking your school hairdo currently! And now I know how frido dido must have felt! And this picture - Well these were the days of looking like an ape in a pineapple costume and feeling like a princess! I pretty much was delusional! But as much as we all are obsessed with kings and queens, education taught me not just the difference between reality and fairy tales but empowered me to twist and turn and make my own ‘not so fairy’ tales. My short film #toffee was inspired by this really disturbing fact that 1 in 3 women in India are married before the age of 18. Let’s ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india to give every girl #TheRightStart I nominate @ayushmannk @diamirzaofficial @iamsonalibendre @nehadhupia to share their childhood memories and take this ahead."
