Ac­tor Son­akshi Sinha (left) will spread the mes­sage of sav­ing the girl child with me­gas­tar Amitabh Bachchan (far left) on his TV show. Af­ter Alia Bhatt, Shilpa Shetty Kun­dra and Kapil Sharma, Son­akshi will be com­ing on the show for a cause. Ac­cord­ing to a source, the ac­tor shared that the cause has a spe­cial place in her heart. “She said that in a coun­try where the birth of male child is cel­e­brated and that of a girl is of­ten as­so­ci­ated with dis­ap­point­ment, a small but pow­er­ful step to al­ter that no­tion is re­ally com­mend­able,” said the source.

Bachchan, who has a daugh­ter, Sh­weta Bachchan-Nanda, was all praise for daugh­ters as he said, “My first child was a daugh­ter, my daugh­ter’s first was a girl and my son’s first child was a girl as well, and I’m proud and blessed to have so many daugh­ters in the fam­ily.”
