Big B sings in train for charity
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.
