Promoting child rights

The actor-producer, known for films like Taare Zammen Par , Ghajini , 3 Idiots and Dhobi Ghat , will support Unicef's work in promoting child rights and nutrition of children under two years, a release said.

The global organisation has roped in various international celebrities to support its campaigns around the globe. Some famous faces include Hollywood actors Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Mia Farrow, Vanessa Redgrave, Susan Sarandon, and entertainer Shakira, and footballer David Beckham. Amitabh Bachchan was appointed Unicef Goodwill Ambassador in 2005 and has since fronted their polio eradication programme successfully. — PTI
