The 73-year-old actor said he keeps contributing to the cause of women education as he believes it is extremely important.

"Money anyone can steal but knowledge cannot be stolen from you. Hence I believe, to increase awareness regarding education, it is extremely important to make women and daughters educated. And I keep contributing towards this cause in my own way," Bachchan said at an event.

The 'Piku' actor unveiled new learning management system app Robomate+ powered by MT Educare.

The app enables self learning and academic upgradation through assessments for students of all categories.

"Many incidents have inspired me in my life... I feel knowledge is that shield which will protect you from difficulties without any weapons. Never stop learning, because learning never stops," he added.

Bachchan, who said he often wishes to go back to school and college to gain more knowledge, advised many young students present at the venue to study in such a way that they remember it for lifetime.

"A person learns two things in life he never forgets. Swimming and cycling. Even after years, he can do it. If only, we study the same way. Without thinking about end results... If you chase knowledge, numbers will chase you," he added.

Bachchan also quipped that today's generation either runs for "abs or apps".
