Amitabh Bachchan May Become The Face Of Anti-Polio Campaign Again
Big B, as he is popularly known, has been requested by UNICEF to lend his support for eradicating polio, once again. He had been one among the most effective anti-polio campaigners.
Amitabh, who is goodwill ambassador for UNICEF has mentioned on his blog that UNICEF has asked him to be a part of polio eradication campaign once again.
"I have worked tirelessly for the eradication of polio in certain distinct parts of our country, namely Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. The UN authorities had come over to meet and discuss how they could extend the appointment further and how we could work together for the benefit of children," Amitabh posted on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com on Monday night.
The matinee star proved to be the most successful ambassador yet of the drive to eradicate polio, the crippling disease that affects children under five.
Even though Jaya Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai and cricket star Sachin Tendulkar have also campaigned with him, Amitabh has been proved to have the most effective.
