Shahrukh Khan lit up a village

Bollywood star Shahrukh Khan has done a noble job of lighting up a village in Orissa by becoming a part of NDTV Toyota Greenathon. Ahirajpur is a remote village in Orissa devoid of light.

Shahrukh’s contribution to the Greenathon made possible for TERI to start a solar energy harnessing project under its title initiative 'Light A Billion Lives'. SRK said, "First of all thank you to Greenathon for giving us the opportunity to be able to do stuff that you always want to do but don't know how to do it. In our everyday life we are busy with material pursuits and we sort of forget sometimes, there is another world, there is another space, there are lot of people around you who need you to walk alongside them."

SRK further said, "I am embarrassed that I could not do anything better, but of course, whenever any organisation, any one who thinks a good cause can be done, I can be relied upon to call and I would try and do my best in whatever way Greenathon is trying to take this forward."

"And inshallah all the villages of our country will be lit very soon so all the children in those villages can study in proper light. All those children become very very successful so this country becomes successful and we become even prouder than we are of India right now,” King Khan concluded.

Among others, Shilpa Shetty has adopted four villages while Sanjay Dutt two.
