ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Storms Bollywood

Hello everyone!!!

There is something that has taken Bollywood by storm! Our celluloid Gods and Goddesses are pouring buckets of ice cold water on themselves and also challenging others in the industry to do so!! If you are a regular on you tube, you would have seen what all is happening!!!

Akshay Kumar is away from the country and has been challenged by Riteish Deshmukh to take up the ALS Ice bucket Challenge. He took up the challenge and uploaded the video of the same on you tube.

The stars from B-town apart from Akshay Kumar who have taken up this challenge so far include Abhishek Bachchan, Bipasha Basu, Sonakshi Sinha, Hansika Motwani and Riteish Deshmukh.

Wait a sec…… what is going on??

Why are stars drenching themselves with ice cold water and also asking their friends to do so? Well, this is a challenge for a noble cause. Our B-town stars have taken a plunge to bring this International fad to India.

Rules of the challenge

The rules of the challenge are that you have to pour a bucket of ice cold water over your head within twenty four hours of being challenged or else you have got to donate 100 dollars to help fight ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). Those who have completed the challenge are also welcome to donate to the ALS association. One can challenge others too after completing his/her own challenge.

Who has challenged whom?

So, Akshay Kumar has donated to the ALS association and has also further challenged his wife Twinkle Khanna and friends Salman Khan and Johnny Lever. Let us see whether they are able to do it! Riteish Deshmukh had also challenged Abhishek Bachchan. He has completed the challenge and has further nominated his Dad Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan to take part in it. Bipasha Basu has nominated Raj Kundra and RockyS.

Sonakshi Sinha was not even nominated but she still did it! She has actually also gone a step ahead and has tweaked the challenge a little. Her you tube video shows her dropping just an ice cube on herself and she has urged people to save water and donate money to the organisation instead. Smart idea!! You can save water this way and extend monetary help to the ALS association. She has nominated all her fans to take up the challenge.

Singing star Daler Mehendi and sports star Sania Mirza have also taken up the challenge.

Several celebs around the globe are pouring buckets of ice cold water on themselves for this noble cause. It is not just the film industry but also other big shots like Bill gates and Mark Zuckerberg who have also gone ahead with the challenge. They are doing this to create awareness and extend a helping hand to patients suffering from ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig’s disease which is a fatal neurodegenerative disease.

The ALS association has been able to raise a lot of funds this year. When compared to last year, this year they have been able to get twelve times more donations.

Stay tuned for more about this challenge and about the disease ALS!!
