Days after Riteish Deshmukh started the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge for Bollywood, challenging Abhishek Bachchan, Sidharth Malhotra, Akshay Kumar and Pulkit Samrat, Sunny Leone has now joined the bandwagon.
Ek Villain star Riteish Deshmukh took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Tuesday and has further tagged fellow actors and friends Abhishek Bachchan, Sidharth Malhotra, Pulkit Samrat and Akshay Kumar for the challenge.
Deshmukh has given a 24-hour deadline for the actors to take up the challenge.
Replying to Ritesih's tweet, junior Bachchan too, took up the challenge and shared a video on Twitter. Interestingly, Abhishek has challenged Amitabh Bachchan for the #IceBucketChallenge.
Riteish's Ek Villain co-star Sidharth Malhotra, too took the challenge and shared the video on Twitter. He further named Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and director Mohit Suri for the challenge.
Pulkit Samrat has also accepted the challenge but is yet to share the video.
@Riteishd challenge accepted!! The bomb's ticking!— Pulkit Samrat (@PulkitSamrat) August 19, 2014
is a rage on the American side of the globe. Famous faces like Charlie Sheen, popstar Lady Gaga and Guardians of Galaxy actor Chris Pratt have faced the challenge, donating thousands of dollars to the cause of spreading awareness on ALS -- amyotrophic lateral sclerosis disease.
The craze is now flooding over to the domestic arena. Tennis player Sania Mirza took the Ice Bucket challenge and further nominated Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh for the same.
The Ice Bucket Challenge is an effort to raise awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, where participants must dump a bucket of ice water over their heads, but if they can't brave the chill, the alternative is to donate 100 dollars to the ALS Association.
