Bollywood Vs Tollywood match To Spread Peace Message
As the first anniversary of 26/11 attacks is approaching, the stars from Bollywood and Tollywood will come together to play cricket. According to the sources, the stars from both the movie industry will play cricket to spread the message of peace.
Sunil Shetty's Popkorn Entertainment and Shailendra Singh's Percept Limited has decided to organize a cricket match between Bollywood & Tollywood. The match will be organized to spread the message of peace and raise funds for peace awareness campaigns.
"The Bollywood team will be led by Sunil Shetty and will comprise Riteish Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani, Sohail Khan, Ashish Choudhry and other stars with whom we are still in talks," Shailendra Singh said.
Bollywood action hero Sunil Shetty added that the match will be played to spread peace.
Sunil Shetty claimed, "The cricket match is for unity and peace. It's not a one-off event. Every year, we will hold a series of events to spread the message of peace."
Shailendra Singh insisted that the funds raised from the event will not be handed over to the government.
He said, "If we raise even Rs 50 lakh through charity events, we will channelize the funds into advertising campaigns that will spread the message of peace. These campaigns will feature artistes who are participating in our events."
Shailendra also confessed that the idea to spread peace through an event is inspired from America and European countries. "They often spread the message of peace through fund raisers and concerts. We are putting all our resources together to propagate peace. Especially in the minds of the youth," he said.
