When the Shahenshah of Bollywood showed the way, could his followers be far behind? Certainly not. When Amitabh Bachchan had announced in ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ that he would donate his clothes to an NGO, his followers in Kolkata picked up the cue right away.
The morning began with a special aarti, where Amitabh chalisa was recited. Prasad was distributed before the mandatory cake-cutting ceremony. As many as 50 children were given academic kits. That apart, fixed deposits were made for two needy girls. "The clothes we donated will be used to make sanitary napkins that will be distributed among women in rural India," said Sanjay Patodia, the secretary of the association.
