Amitabh Bachchan donates a tractor and an excavator for the cleaning of Versova beach

Remember the inspiring story of the astonishing transformation of Mumbai's Versova beach?

The place grabbed worldwide headlines after it was transitioned from a common-dumping ground for locals to an idealistic picture-perfect shoreline. 

Now, Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan too has extended his support to the movement - donating an excavator and a tractor - to help make the process of cleaning tonnes of waste from the area - a little easier.

Taking to Twitter, the megastar shared images of his meeting with the volunteers, expressing his "joy in donating" the cleaning equipments to the cause. 

"The joy of gifting for a cause as noble as the one I did today is the most satisfying experience of life! Gifted an excavator and a tractor for Versova Beach clean up," Big B wrote along with the images.



It was the leadership of Afroz Shah and his volunteers that led the beach to divine cleanliness after removing several tonnes of stinking mess from its premises. 

But like everything else, the cleanliness drive did not entirely end despite the thorough removal of waste as the place required constant maintenance, with some of the dump still remaining to be cleared from the site.






Shah also expressed his gratitude over Big B's generosity sharing a few other images from the event.



Big B is one of the many celebs from B-town who have previously showed support to the cleanliness drivei of the beach. On previous occasions, help has been extended from the likes of Randeep Hooda, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza and Nawazuddin Siddiqui to name a few.




Way to go Big B!
