Does the Ice-Bucket Challenge have any relevance to us? Bollywood answers


Kamal Haasan: “Irrelevance is the nature of the game, be it present day politics or passing fads like the ice-bucket challenge. I wish it had been a soap box oration instead of an ice box.”


Bipasha Basu: “No I don’t think the ice-bucket challenge has any relevance for us. However I was persuaded by my best-friend Suzanne who is now an American citizen, to try it out. She also donated on my behalf. The cause per se is good, and it’s an interesting way to generate funds and create awareness for global issues.”


Tapsee Pannu: “I don’t have the heart to entertain the ice-bucket challenge. Not in this country where a lot of people don’t have drinking water. More than a genuine cause the ice-bucket challenge has become a fun game. If at all you want to do some good to society please donate a bucket of water to someone needy.”


Prasoon Joshi: “In my opinion such things might not have a direct impact and the ice-bucket challenge may be limited in its reach. But a correct idea may stir up the imagination, especially when it comes to the youth.”


Mahesh Bhatt: “Apathy walks tall in ‘punyabhoomi’. If we loved our brother like our self, this country would become a paradise.”


Pooja Bedi: “I think it’s wonderful to draw attention to a cause. However given India’s water woes, this is not the most sensitive way to promote sensitivity.”


Cyrus Sahukar: “I think the ice-bucket challenge is a complete waste in our country. Given the pathetic water scarcity we should only be allowed the ‘chullu bhar paani’ challenge. Or even better still the ‘ice cube challenge’ where one chunk of ice cube can be reused in a drink before it melts.”


Kriti Sanon: “I see no harm in the ice-bucket challenge. Even if it helps spread a bit of awareness about ALS, and people donate for its cure’s research, it is worth it. But I feel the challenge is not concentrating enough on spreading awareness about the disease, which is the challenge’s sole purpose.There are much bigger problems in India which need urgent attention. There are far more people dying of diarrhoea for want of clean water.”


Richa Chadha: “The ice bucket challenge makes no sense to me. The rice bucket makes far more sense as the rice goes to poor children. And if people do the ice bucket for fun, we can’t condemn them for wasting water. Even Holi is about wasting water.”


Kalki Koechlin: “I’m personally not interested in the ice-bucket challenge. But if it encourages people to donate money for ALS research, then why not?


Nimrat Kaur: “No, the ice-bucket challenge has no relevance to Indian society per se. But it has a relevance in the medical world, and that is not country or culture specific.”
