Here’s a marvelous gesture from Amitabh Bachchan that will only strengthen the respect you have for him.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is a United Nations Ambassador for the girl child, has sponsored the coaching of two women athletes who will represent the country at global platforms.

The 71-yer-old veteran has sponsored women athletes Ayonika Paul and Pooja Ghatkar - both shooters - as part of the Medals4India campaign initiated by the NGO Olympic Gold Quest.

Olympic Gold Quest is a programme of the Foundation of Sports And Games (founded in 2001), started by Indian sporting icons to identify and support Indian athletes with a proven track record and who have the potential to win Olympic gold medals.
