Amitabh donates 11 lakhs:

It was a nostalgic evening for Sherwoodians, past and present. They all got together with media personalities at St. Andrews Hall, Bandra on October 27 to encourage the present-day students who performed Ken Keseys One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest. The show was sponsored by Star. Past-Sherwoodian Amitabh Bachchan was the chief guest at the show and at the dinner get-together, which followed at the Golden Orchid, Bandra. Not only did Bachchan watch the full play, but he had a word of encouragement and genuine praise for every young actor. So touched and impressed was he that he requested Dalip Tahil (who had organized the entire event) to announce his donation of Rs. 11 lakhs to Sherwood College, Nainital. Among those present were actors Kabir Bedi and Dalip Tahil, who, like Bachchan, were theatre-trained at the school and who won the Geoffrey Kendal Cup for Dramatics.
