Actor Abhishek Bachchan is a regular face at various charity events. From being spotted at celebrity football matches to contributing from his Kabaddi team earnings, Junior Bachchan never keeps away from lending a helping hand to the needy.

Now, according to Hindustan Times report, the Guru (2007) actor has recently raised funds to support 30,000 underprivileged kids, in collaboration with an NGO called Magic Bus. Bachchan travelled to Singapore and Hyderabad to raise funds for these kids.

A source close to the actor told HT, “He first went to Singapore and then to Hyderabad to be part of the fund-raising charity dinners. In Hyderabad, the initiative was also supported by actors like Ram Charan and Rana Dagubatti. From both the events, the organisation has raised enough funds to support the education of 30,000 underprivileged children from Maharashtra, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.”

HT quoted Abhishek saying, "The incredible work that this organisation is doing to support around 4,00,000 children amazes me. I’m happy that my contribution at the Singapore and Hyderabad benefit dinners will go towards building the future of 30,000 children.”

Several Bollywood celebs like Salman Khan to Aamir Khan, have gone out of the way to make a difference in the world of these small wonders.
