Bollywood Takes ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

It looks like B-town celebrities are joining their Hollywood brethren in the ongoing Ice Bucket Challenge trend!  Check out Bipasha Basu as she takes a tiny silver bucket and dumps it on herself. Superstar Abhishek Bachchan proudly accepted the challenge from friend Riteish Deshmukh and took the icy plunge in a bathtub. He also challenged his father, Megastar Amithabh Bachchan, along with the entire Happy New Year film team.

Bipasha tweeted “Accepted my best friend suzie’s ! i am nominating RockyS and Raj Kundra!” yesterday. Supposedly, it was athlete Sania Mirza who initiated the craze in India after it started in the U.S. in support of ALS research. ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. There is no treatment or cure for the disease.

Actors Akshay Kumar, Siddharth Malhotra, Pulkit Samrat and Ashish Chowdhry were also dared to take the challenge through actor Riteish Deshmukh, but no word on if they’re up to the challenge.

We’ll just have to wait and see if they accept!
