Why is Amitabh Bachchan happy and proud?

Amitabh Bachchan is ‘happy and proud.’ No, this time around it isn’t ‘coz he’s become a grandpa to a cute lil granddaughter. In fact, he’s proud about something related to our country. India has been officially declared as a polio free country and Amitabh Bachchan, who has been UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador for Polio eradication for almost a decade is elated by the news.

Big B said, “As the brand ambassador for the United Nations in the fight for polio eradication, I’m very happy and proud that India has been declared a polio-free country. I wish to applaud the efforts of the various volunteers and medical workers who have persevered tirelessly and charitably to enable India to be eradicated of the disease.”

Well, that’s quite an achievement for our country. Kudos to everyone and a special thanks to Big B. We hope that Amitabh Bachchan supports more such social causes to make India a better place to live in.
