Akshay's Oh My God suit on auction for charity
Bollywood star Akshay Kumar has put one of his suits from the film Oh My God on auction for charity. The proceeds will go to Muktangan schools. "Someone has rightly said, 'No one has ever become poor by giving'. And taking that thought forward, I'm auctioning one of my suits from Oh My God," tweeted Akshay.
"The proceeds of this will go to Muktangan, who currently needs Rs.15 lakh to cover 60 percent of one of their pre-primary school's annual budget for the academic year 2012-2013. Come join me, spread the word and let's 'Fund the Change'," he added.
Akshay, who was recently blessed with a daughter, has been receiving praises galore for Oh My God, which deals with the merchandising of religion in the country.
The film is an adaptation of Paresh Rawal's Gujarati play Kanji Virrudh Kanji, and Paresh features in it as an atheist. Akshay plays god in the film.
