The ALS Ice bucket challenge has gone viral across the globe. The trend which kicked-off in the West, has now slowly found its place in India as well.
Bollywood entertainer Riteish Deshmukh accepted the challenge on Tuesday and later on took to the micro-blogging site Twitter to nominate his friends Akshay Kumar, Pulkit Samrat, Sidharth Malhotra, Ashish Chowdhury and Abhishek Bachchan to accept the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’.
He has given all of them a 24-hour deadline.
Riteish accepted the challenge after being tagged by ace tennis player Sania Mirza. This may all sound a lot of fun, but the idea behind this challenge, is quite noble.
The challenge was started in order to promote awareness for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). The idea is that whoever takes the challenge has to pour a bucket of ice water on their head or donate a 100 dollars for the cause. The people who take the challenge have to also nominate others. Stars however are doing both.
Hollywood’s who’s who shared their videos via various social sites.
