Kareena Kapoor recently showed how large-hearted she is by giving a substantial sum of money to provide electricity to the remote village of Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh.

She had gone to the village with Aamir Khan as part of the promotion campaign for 3 Idiots. The weavers from the village even presented her with a gorgeous hand-woven black saree with gold embellishments. She was elated by the gift but at the same time saddened to hear the hardships faced by the weavers and their fellow villagers for the plain lack of electricity.


Kareena was so moved by their plight that she gave a check of approximately Rs. 3 Lakhs to raise a solar energy plant to provide electricity to the village. The solar plant should be built in two months.


Not only this, but Kareena is now urging others from the industry to come forward and help to bring electricity to the 100 or so villages in India that still do not have this necessity.


This gesture was among several others during the Greenathon II extravaganza co-organized and sponsored by NDTV and Toytota.

    @Madhy:
    At least she gave some money/she made a donation..

    She is not required to do such a thing, as it is her earned money and not from that village!

    People are never satisfied, always something to complain about!
