Ask Amitabh Bachchan and you will know what we mean. The baap of Bollywood will be inundated with bouquets and amazing gifts tomorrow, but one gift that is going to be the most unusual will be the one that will be presented to him by the charity Silver Star founded by Britain’s most senior Asian MP Keith Vaz.
He is all set to gift Big B a mobile diabetes testing unit, and the superstar will receive the gift from the British Deputy High Commissioner at the Seven Hills Hospital, Mumbai. Amitabh is the charity’s international patron and he has played a key role in spreading awareness about diabetes in India. To honour big B, the mobile clinic will be named Amitabh, which means the everlasting light.
Seven Hills hospital will fund and manage the operations of the unit which will offer free diabetes testing to the city’s most disadvantaged. Amitabh has always shown great support to social causes for many years, and now, on his landmark birthday, Big B will receive a gift that will help combat the spread of diabetes in the island city.
