Kiran visited Zaira's school to meet the principal to thank her for the support the school has given to Zaira, read a statement.

The school, St. Pauls International Academy, not only gave Zaira leave for the number of days she is shooting for 'Dangal', but also gave her a personal tutor so that she does not miss on her studies. This, Kiran felt was very important and a great thing to do.

During her visit, Kiran received a very traditional and warm welcome from the students.

“Dangal”, which is slated to release on Christmas next year, is co-produced by Aamir Khan Productions and UTV Motion Pictures.

Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, the films also stars Sakshi Tanwar, Rajkummar Rao and Sanya Malhotra, among others.
