The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge- which involves pouring a bucket full of ice water over one’s head in order to spread the awareness of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is now becoming viral among our Bollywood celebs. The B-Town stars decided to experience the thrill and also support the cause.
To start with, Riteish Deshmukh was one of the first few stars to take up the challenge. Tennis player Sania Mirza nominated him and he successfully did the Ice Bucket Challenge. He then nominated daredevil actor Akshay Kumar, who didn’t hesitate in supporting the cause. Akshay then nominated wife Twinkle Khanna and close friend Salman Khan. However, both of them haven’t taken up the challenge yet.
Other stars including Bipasha Basu, Sunny Leone, Siddharth Malhotra, Daler Mehendi, Mandira Bedi,Sophie Choudry, Sunidhi Chauhan, Ashish Chowdhary, Abhishekh Bachhan, Rahul Bose etc too took up the Ice Bucket Challenge to support the cause.
But what caught our eye was Dabangg girl Sonakshi Sinha, who also supported the cause by uploading her video. In the video, when she upturned the bucket over her head, a tiny ice cube fell from it. Sonakshi then comes closer to the camera and says, “So I just saved a lot of water and now I’m going to go donate the money. Nobody nominated me. But i still took the challenge. And now i nominate you all to do what i just did. If you’ve already showered, skip the ice water. If you haven’t, go ahead by all means. but please go to www.als.org to donate” says the actress.
That was indeed a unqiue way to support the cause Sonakshi!
