The Bachchan family recently managed to raise 25 lakhs through the sale of some paintings for a charity they support. These paintings were based on interpretations of the Big B as well as a book which was unveiled marking the 70th birthday of the Bollywood superstar.
Amitabh Bachchan’s 70th birthday celebrations were held in October 2012 where we saw seventy paintings from artists all over India as well as a book called B70 being released.
The money collected from the sale of these paintings were all given to the charity organization known as Plan India for use in their campaign for girl children. The charity event saw appearances by Amitabh, Abhishek, Jaya and Aishwarya.
Aishwarya Rai said that every child had a right to be empowered and enabled by birth. She further added that she felt that this charity was a great way of helping out girl children exactly this way.
