Mumbai, March 23 (IANS) Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, who plans to adopt children every year, said she will finance the upbringing of 34 girls at the Mother Miracle orphanage in Rishikesh.

'I've adopted 34 girls. I'll be looking after their entire upbringing from education to food, clothes etc. You've no idea how wonderful it feels to hear the excited chatter of all these girls together,' she said.

Preity, who doesn't intend to be a sleeper parent, said: 'These are my children now, my responsibility. I'll be constantly connected with them and I'll visit them twice a year.'

The actress said she plans to increase her social responsibilities. 'For a while now I've been thinking of what to do to help the less privileged classes specially the girl child. The horrors of foeticide and rampant child abuse are not just screaming news headlines for me. They're voices that scream from inside me. And I had to listen to them. These 34 girls are just a beginning. I plan to adopt a couple more every year.'

    Woww I love this lady! She puts her money where her mouth is! Shes a genuine do-gooder and the spunkiest gal in Bollywood. She was the only one with the guts to stand up to the Underworld and now shes doing this for girl children who are the biggest victims in India!
    I wish the other Bollywood millionaires would follow her example.
