New Delhi: The Bollywood band-wagon is taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness for the dreaded nuerological disease – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Now, controversial starlet, Poonam Pandey has also taken the Ice Bucket Challenge after she was tagged by many of her fans on the social networking site.

She recently took the challenge and poured a bucket of ice on herself in her bathtub. She also tagged the three Khans – Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan to take it too. Interestingly, Akshay Kumar had also challenged Salman for the same.

The Ice Bucket Challenge became a phenomenon after Hollywood celebrities started taking up this unique way of raising awareness. The way it works is, that anyone who is challenged for this is supposed to douse himself/herself in a bucket of ice/ice water (stimulating the feeling of the disease) or donate a 100 USD to the ALS Association.

Most celebs have done both and are tagging other stars to follow suit. One of the first Bollywood celebrities to take this challenge was Riteish Deshmukh, who put the video on his official Facebook page.

Other celebs such as Akshay Kumar, Bipasha Basu and Abhishek Bachchan too took up the challenge.
