Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan has made an impassioned plea to save an ailing elephant.

What is Amitabh Bachchan concerned about? The ailing elephant Bijlee. He has appealed to animal lovers to rescue the tusker who had collapsed near Wockhardt Hospital in Mulund last week.

In a series of tweets, the 70- year old said: "Attention! elephant 'Bijlee' lying collapsed in Mulund, suburb of Mumbai...she needs cure...will authorities please extend all help."

He further tweeted: "There is an NGO AMTM (Animals Matter to Me) working on Bijlee, giving food etc, but she needs to get to a hospital. Authority help needed. Equipment to carry (sic)."

"A compassionate appeal to all animal lovers. Please come forward and extend all possible help. I just did. Will you," he tweeted.

The actor also put up photographs of Bijlee on his blog with details of the NGO where one can contribute in whatever way possible.

"I am not in the habit of putting appeals on the social media, for reasons that concern me contractually. But I do believe in this unfortunate incident, and believe that if something can be done for this beleaguered elephant lying on the road in great misery, she will survive and flourish," he said in his blog post.

"So let us do our best that we can, for those that suffer, that speak of their misery in a language that we cannot understand, but who we know would understand any help that can be extended to them," Amitabh Bachchan further added.

Bijlee, a 58-year-old female elephant, belongs to a couple who used her to beg for alms, marriages and other auspicious occasions.
