Remember the climax scene of 3 Idiots? Where Mahadevan and Bebo meet Aamir Khan, who played the role of maverick Rancho? That was shot on the premises of Druk Padma Karpo School in Leh in Jammu & Kashmir.
The recent flash floods in Leh left the school devastated. On hearing about this calamity, Aamir Khan would help rebuild the school once normalcy returned in Leh. Prasad Eledath, principal of Druk Padma Karpo School, said the construction of school, meant for children from remote areas, began in 1999 and only 75% of work had been completed when the floods came. Various national and international organizations also offered financial help for the reconstruction of the school.
