Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh held a special screening of his debut Marathi venture Balak Palak  for the students of his school.

"I was actually inspired by the critics, who wrote in their reviews that every Balak (child) and Palak (parent) should watch this film.

"The film does make you think about the importance of sex education. I wanted to share this work of ours with my school G D Somani and its students. I'm glad Principal Seymour instantly agreed to the screening of my film for the secondary students," Riteish, 34, said in a statement.

The film, which hit theatres on January 4, was selected for South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF) in New York and MAMI in Mumbai.
