Former Bigg Boss contestant Mandana Karimi was recently in news for her marriage with husband Gaurav Gupta hitting rock bottom and she filing for divorce. The actress then withdrew the case sometime back.
The ‘Kya Kool Hai Hum 3′ actress is now in the news for something different. She has taken up a teaching job with an NGO.
“I am trying to get back in shape and looking for an apartment. I haven’t got back to acting and modeling yet, instead I’m working with Angel Express and teaching underprivileged kids Maths and English from Monday to Friday. I have always wanted to be associated with an NGO.
Life is good and I’m at peace,” she smiles, unwilling to talk about her husband or in-laws who have reportedly locked her out of her marital home.
She says give these children, who have nothing of value, the gift of education. “I’m not the expert here and though I’m teaching them, I am really the one who is learning. They look at life with so much gratitude and happiness that time flies by,” she smiles, saying that she had known of this NGO and when she reached out to them, they were happy to have her on-board.
“I teach for an hour at the centre, five days a week, and then spend some more time playing games with the kids. I sometimes even take them out for treats and talk to them about family, friends, films, sports and their goals,” added Mandana.
Since the age group varies each time, the actress is able to connect with kids of varied interests and each day holds something interesting to look forward to.
The Iranian beauty was recently in the news for shared her topless image on Instagram. She posted it as an Insta story, which gets deleted after 24 hours.
