Akshay Kumar, who is in Cape Town shooting Life Ok's dance reality show Dare To Dance accepeted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from Riteish Deshmukh. But the original Khiladi gave a twist to it by asking the 11 contestants from the show to throw one bucket of ice water each on him.
"I am in Cape Town right now and the temperature is approximately 8 degrees. I am hosting ‘Dare To Dance' here and I have 11 contestants with me here. My friend Riteish Deshmukh has dared me to take up the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. And I am ready to do it," said Akshay in the video.
Akshay further nominated his wife Twinkle Khanna, Ashwini Yardi, Salman Khan and Johny Lever for the challenge. "I had just asked one contestant to help me, and the other 10 also came along to help because we Indians are always eager to help others. Also I want to tell you guys that I am using sea water because I don't want to waste fresh water. I want to nominate my wife Twinkle Khanna, my friend Ashwini Yardi, Salman Khan and Johny Lever. I dare them to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It's for a good cause," he also added.
