Amitabh Bachchan Donates 25 Lakhs For Girl Child Foundation

Bollywood Actor Amitabh Bachchan know to keep his charity work away from media goes open this time along with his whole family for a Cause .

Amitabh Bachchan held a press conference at his office, Janak, in Mumbai to announce a whopping Rs. 25 lakh for charity towards the upliftment of the girl child in India. Wife Jaya, son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai — all dressed in white — were also present.

Big B has even posted about his charity on twitter by tweeting,”Normally do not announce charity, but this issue was important keeping recent happenings against women.”

Apparently,Amitabha Bachchan has came out from the idea that the family would raise funds for an NGO Plan India for their campaign for the girl child, through proceeds generated from the art exhibition and sale of a book from Big B’s 70th birthday celebrations. It may be recalled that on his birthday (October 11) last year, paintings by 70 leading artists from all over the country were put on sale for charity. A book, B70, commemorating the paintings was also launched by Jaya.

Interstingly,Abhishek Bachchan‘s Baby Child Aaradhya Bachchan was missing from the event.
