New Delhi: The online auction of Bollywood
star Salman Khan`s towel on the online marketplace, eBay
India, has attracted bids to the tune of Rs 1.42 lakh.

eBay India in association with television channel Star
Plus has started a charity auction of celebrity memorabilia,
the proceeds of which would be donated to `Sneha`(Society for
nutrition, education and health action), an NGO.

eBay India offers the memorabilia of those star guests
who appear in the TV show `Tere Mere Beach Mein`, hosted by
Bollywood personality Farah Khan.

The first auction in this series began last Sunday with
Salman Khan-autographed towel on auction. The auction has
attracted over 1,600 visitors from different countries,
including India, an eBay official said.

The auction has attracted fans of Khan from across the
world. The towel, which had the start-price of Rs 1,001, has
got the highest bid of Rs 1.42 lakh from a Hong Kong fan.

The auction is still open and would close on August 30.

"Bollywood fans worldwide will enjoy the experience of
bidding and winning the unique personal and movie memorabilia
donated by the celebrity guests as well as benefiting a good
cause," eBay India Senior Manager (Pop Culture) Deepa Thomas
