The staff and the students of Don Bosco Junior College, Yerwada, indeed experienced a proud moment on 10 March 2023, as one of their very own past pupils, Ms Kayadu Lohar, now turned into a film actress, accompanied by her film crew visited the campus for the promotion of their upcoming Marathi film ‘I Prem You’.

Ms Lohar started her career in modelling. She has won titles like Times of India's Everyuth Fresh Face Season 12 (2019), Mr. & Ms. University and College Idol Season 15. She made her acting debut in the Kannada Movie ‘Mugilpete’ (2021), and also made her Malayalam debut in the film ‘Pathombatham Noottandu’ (2022).

Ms Lohar was warmly welcomed by the Principal, Fr Ajit Munis, the staff and the students. She was introduced to the audience by Mr Leo D’Souza, the Supervisor of the Junior College, who appreciated Kayadu for being a hardworking, active, and exemplary leader and for being good in academics, sports, and co-curricular activities during her college days.  He also recalled the various events like dancing, acting, and sports, in which she represented the college at inter-college and district levels. Ms Lohar studied at the institution from 2016-2021 completing her Junior and Senior College in Commerce.

Ms Lohar introduced her crew and co-actors and spoke about her upcoming Marathi movie with her co-star Mr Abhijit Amkar. The film's promo was screened and the audience, especially the students, cheered for them and appreciated their performance.

Ms Lohar thanked the Management, and the staff for supporting her and making her believe in her dreams. She inspired the students by saying that she too was just like them, seated in the audience some years ago and today she has made her way by sheer determination and hard work. She was grateful to the Don Bosco Family for inculcating good values in her and helping her bring out the best in her. She thanked her supervisor and the teachers for helping her to grow and believe that hard work goes a long way. Ms Lohar expressed her emotions best by saying: “Don Bosco is my second home, and homecoming is always the best feeling.”

Fr Munis presented a token to the crew and thanked them for their presence. Meanwhile, the students enjoyed a photo session and interacting with the team. Dion Murthy, a student, remarked: “I now can believe that the silver screen is not far away from the reach of common people, if Ms Kayadu can do that we can do it too.” 

The students indeed experienced that beauty lies not only in the external appearance of a person, but beauty lies deep within oneself, as they found Ms Lohar a very down-to-earth person. It was a joyful and memorable experience, and the entire Don Bosco Family wished them success.
