The Ice Bucket Challenge is taking over the celebrities by storm including many Tollywood actors too taking up the challenge. But the very talented actress Priyanka Chopra, the girl who did Mary Kom in a biopic that’s hitting the screens soon who was nominated by many of actor/celebrity colleagues to take up the ALS ice bucket challenge, refused to take it up.
Although this is to improve awareness in public regarding a rare medical condition called ALS (Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis), the challenge involves pouring of ice (cold) water on head. The challenge was taken first by Akshay Kumar and many followed the suit. Each person will nominate another twenty members and thats how the awareness is spread!
But, yes, Girl Priyanka won’t join the league. She tweeted: “Thank u for all the nominations but… RT @shrishtiarya: Newsreader Beautifully Shuts Down Ice Bucket Challenge pedestrian.tv/news/arts-and-culture/newsreader-beautifully-shuts-down-ice-bucket-chall/600a2c06-7dec-4f27-a74a-1ab99a534c75.htm …… (sic).”
Earlier, Sonam Kapoor too refused to take up the challenge and she was nominated by Fukrey fame actor Pulkit Samrat.
Sonam tweeted: “@PulkitSamrat already made a donation!! Not dumping water waste of resources!”
Hollywood actress Pamela Anderson has also refused as she said she can’t support an organisation that does testing on animals.
Truly impressive to see beauties with brains and having beautiful hearts! You go girl, Pee Cee!
