Amitabh Bachchan Urges Poverty Eradication

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is gearing up for the Global Citizen Festival India (GCFI), has urged everyone to support poverty eradication.

The 74-year-old on Friday shared a photograph of himself shaking hands with the British band Coldplay’s frontman Chris Martin.

“The Global Citizen Concert tomorrow (Saturday)…Coldplay and Jay Z and many others. Come support poverty eradication,” Amitabh captioned the image, which he shared on Twitter and his official blog.

Amitabh also shared that he got to know about Martin “more intimately when I heard his song that he sings along on the streets of London or England or somewhere, in a video .. and now this”.

Big B urges poverty eradication

“This concert being performed for the eradication of poverty in our universe, and for the well-being of the poor! A sense of pride envelops us as we speak about the venture and why not,” he wrote on his blog.

The cine-icon also posted some photographs of himself rehearsing for the festival, which is set to take place at the MMRDA grounds here on Saturday. The fest is focused on creating an impact in areas of education, equality, and clean water and sanitation.

“Rehearsals…always a mess, but somehow on the day all seems to work out and I do hope it does. The cause is great and noble and worthy,” he wrote.

Apart from Coldplay, GCFI will feature international artistes like the band The Vamps, Jay Z and Demi Lovato.

Among Indian celebrities names like A.R. Rahman, Shah Rukh Khan, Freida Pinto, Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Sonakshi Sinha, Parineeti Chopra, Monali Thakur and Arijit Singh will be present at the gala.

Force 2 Will Have To Beat Bullet Raja To Enter List Of Sonakshi’s ‘Highest Grossers Of All Time’ List

Shotgun Jr. aka Sonakshi Sinha has enjoyed an interesting career graph after starring in both commercial and off-beat cinema. Her character in biggies like Dabangg, Dabangg 2 and Son Of Sardaar were quite liked by audience. Not to forget, she has proven her mettle as an actor with films like Lootera, R… RajkumarTevar and Rowdy Rathore.

Sonakshi is currently gearing up for the release of her action drama Force 2 which is set to hit the screens, this Friday. The pre-release buzz around the film is quiet decent. An opening of around 5 crores can be pretty much expected from this film.

Looking at Sonakshi’s list of her highest grossing films ever, she has 5 films in the 100 crore club and rest of them have raked in over 30 crores (lifetime). The question here is not whether the film will enter this list or not; it will certainly attain the feat. But will Force 2 make business more than Tevar & Bullet Raja? Does it have the potential to go past Action Jackson?
