Win a lunch date with Amitabh Bachchan!

Last updated on: September 28, 2010 16:27 IST

Amitabh Bachchan is auctioning off a lunch date with him to raise money for charity, sparking a frenzy which saw the bids rise above    6 lakhs within hours of the announcement.

The bidding started at    1001 on Monday at online marketplace eBay and it has already reached a whopping amount of    6 lakhs.

The 67-year-old veteran has pipped Bollywood's bad boy Salman Khan and Akshay Khiladi Kumar in the bidding amounts.

A breakfast date with Akshay is currently going for    4,52,000.

On offer is the oppurtunity to spend time with the 'Shehenshah of Bollywood' over lunch. Bachchan will answer the winner's questions about his long career and his easiest, most difficult, funniest and craziest moments. The winner will also get the opportunity to take photographs with the Big B and get personalised autographs from him.

The actor decided to do the good deed to mark the 'Joy of Giving' week in collaboration with eBay. The National Award winning actor who is set to host the superhit TV game show Kaun Banega Crorepati for a third time, will donate the proceedings to a charity of his choice.

Also during the Joy of Giving Week Bangalore NGO CMCA (Children's Movement for Civic Awareness) is auctioning an lunch date with actress Raveena Tandon in addition to cricket memorabilia.
