While everyone loosens their purse strings for Joy of Giving Week (26th September to 2nd October), Bollywood superstars are not to be left behind.
Akshay Kumar was the first to auction the offer of having breakfast with him. The action star tweeted the offer “Hey! Hope everyone who is bidding for breakfast with ME is feeling hungry, not many days left to bid… So dig deep into your pockets, I promise I’ll feed your stomachs well.” The last time we checked, the bid had crossed Rs. 4 lakhs! No wonder that the actor later apologized to his fans who wouldn’t be able to afford dining with him, “I just wanna say I’m sorry to all those who would like to have breakfast with me but can’t afford it. But please understand it’s for charity…”
Amitabh Bachchan, too followed suit, and is now part of the online charity auction on ebay. The highest bidder will get a chance to have lunch/breakfast with the star and spend some time with them. Salman Khan has offered a private training session with him in his gym and even some fitness tips for the Joy of Giving Week.
The amount received from the auction will be donated to a charitable organization. Sachin Tendulkar, Adi Godrej and Anurag Kashyap have also contributed to the cause.
