Hockey team wants Amitabh at its fundraiser concert
Shah Rukh and Aamir may join the event
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan says that the Indian hockey team has urged him to "spearhead" its fundraiser concert in Chandigarh.
"The Hockey National Team is on its way back from training camp at Pune, and has a desire to meet me... The team has been struggling with their association and handlers for their pay to be settled," Amitabh posted on his blog on Sunday (Jan 31).
The concert is being organised by Pakistani singer Salma Agha. Rumours are rife that superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan also may join the event.
"They say I spearhead a concert to be held in Chandigarh to collect funds for them and their welfare. I have asked for details and shall see what can be done for a cause as noble as this," said Bachchan.
The Indian hockey team members went on strike in Pune early this month, protesting non-payment of sponsorship money and match fees.
