Aishwarya and Akshay cheer up cancer patients

Her ‘Raavan’ with hubby Abhishek Bachchan could not weave magic at the box-office and Bollywood queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is leaving no stones unturned to promote her forthcoming ‘Action Replayy’ so as to ensure the success of the film. They were present at the event organised by the Cancer Patients Aid Association and the stars sang and danced with cancer patients while on their promotion spree.

Both of them were overwhelmed with emotions to see the kids. Aishwarya urged people to come forward to offer support to these children. She said, “I think everybody should come forth, contribute in whichever way, in whatever manner you can, to help fund the treatment of people, be it children or whoever the people in need because cancer is a big fight and I think it is something that’s an ongoing fight with a large part of the human community. So, do whatever you can, financially, personally in spending time, in being there and lending support and strength.”

Bonding with the cancer patients, Khiladi Kumar said, “Today I felt very good after looking at them (children) dance and even looking at their stamina. I have a very old relation with cancer as my father had cancer, So, I can feel the pain.”
