Big B sings in train for char­ity

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Megas­tar Amitabh Bachchan (right) was spot­ted singing in a Mum­bai lo­cal train to raise money for can­cer pa­tients. The 73-year-old star ac­com­pa­nied Sau­rabh Nim­bkar, who sings in the lo­cals to raise money and even fea­tured on a TV show hosted by him. “Lo­cal from VT (Vic­to­ria Ter­mi­nus in Mum­bai) to Bhandup to sup­port Sau­rabh, who sings in lo­cals for char­ity to can­cer... sang with him...” Big B tweeted on Sun­day night.

He wrote in his blog that the money col­lected by Nim­bkar is dis­trib­uted to the less for­tu­nate can­cer pa­tients and their fam­i­lies in the city. “The idea is not to cre­ate a splash among the me­dia, or to cre­ate cred­i­ble con­tent for them ... the idea is to let him know that he is not alone...that he is ap­pre­ci­ated... that our sup­port runs even af­ter he de­parts from the show,” he wrote.

Big B’s ap­pear­ance came as a “sur­prise” for Nim­bkar and for those who travel daily on the lo­cal train as the whole ex­er­cise was ex­e­cuted with­out his knowl­edge.
