Karthik Sivakumar with Childrens at KideX 2010
It was an interesting experience for many school children on Friday. They got to shake hands with their favourite artist Karthik Sivakumar, share the dais, take photographs, quiz him on several topics and listen to him.
"Such events were not there during my school days. I was an average student, but was good at designing. Children should go out and play. You should pick up at least one sport, one musical instrument or dancing that will shape your future," Tamil actor said.
Referring to the increasing number of kidnapping incidents, his advice was: "Keep away from strangers. Don't talk to them. Make sure to have your parents or teachers along while you converse with them." To a child's question on children entering filmdom, he said that it was good as long as it did not interfere with studies."
