    Amitabh Bachchan endorses a cause on his 71st birthday!

    Amitabh Bachchan turned 71 today and on his birthday he announced that he has taken up an initiative to provide electricity to 3,000 houses in rural India using solar power.  We must say quite a celebration – to light up so many lives! Harivansh Rai Bachchan Memorial Trust and Urja Foundation have come together in an endeavour to provide solar powered lights to small villages that are deprived of electricity. Big B said,  “There is a trust in my father’s name – Harivansh Rai Bachchan Trust – and whatever money we collect, we give it to some charitable cause. Urja Foundation will provide electricity to 3,000 houses in villages.  This is just a beginning. We will start this by November. The electricity will be provided through solar energy free of cost to small villages” added the megastar as he addressed the media at his Juhu office Janak in Mumbai.
    We are certain that there will be only more people who will be celebrating the Shahenshah‘s birthday today, at least 3000 more!Click here to read more
