Taapsee Pannu shared a throwback picture from her school days on her Instagram handle. The picture showed the actress in her school uniform standing on a podium, after having won the first prize in a sport. The Pink actress captioned it, "Sports have been an integral part of my life. School race tracks became my war zone every year and thanks to a supportive family and encouraging school teachers, I could have my moment of glory. Unfortunately, many kids don't have that support system. #WhyTheGap"

This super-cute picture certainly takes us back to our good old school days. The Badla actress shared her childhood picture as a part of the #WhyTheGap social initiative in collaboration with the NGO Save The Children. She was nominated for the challenge by Akshay Kumar, who in turn was nominated by Twinkle Khanna.

Akshay shared a black and white throwback photo of himself in which he can be seen sitting atop a bicycle. He wrote, "Growing up I was always inclined towards sports and my mother would ensure I got nutritious home-cooked meals to fuel my passion. But it's a privilege that millions of street children do not have access to. 11,72,604 children in India can't afford even a single meal a day! It's time to ask #WhyTheGap with @savethechildren_india". Apart from Taapsee, he had also nominated Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Menen and Kirti Kulhari for the challenge.
