Amitabh Bachchan to light up homes in rural areas
On his 71st birthday yesterday, Amitabh Bachchan announced his decision to light up rural villages that have no electricity.
The actor said, "There is a trust in my father's name — Harivansh Rai Bachchan Memorial Trust. The funds we collect are used for a charitable cause. This time, along with the Urja Foundation — another charitable organisation — we will provide electricity to 3000 homes in small villages across India. The electricity will be provided through solar energy."
Big B was to work as usual yesterday, but his shooting schedule was disrupted due to a glitch.
He was, however, quite happy as he revealed how daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had taught his granddaughter Aaradhya to sing happy birthday to him.
