Shah Rukh, Rani to campaign for Sundarbans

The 45-year-old actor will be joined by other stars including Rani Mukherji, Arjun Rampal and Isha Koppikhar at the gala event on December 10. "He will vote for the Sundarbans on stage during his performance," Swapan Chowdhury chairman of Ontar Showbiz, organizer of the performance, told newsmen here.

Private television channel Boishakhi TV and Radio Today would broadcast the performance live from the Army Stadium in Dhaka. Khan and his co-performers will arrive here on December 9 and leave for home the day after the programme.

Tickets for the show will be available at different selected points in the capital. The price of tickets have been categorised in four kinds - Bronze at Tk 3,000, Silver at Tk 5,000, Gold at Tk 10,000 and Platinum at Tk 25,000.

Bangladesh and India share the Sundarbans, stretching over an area of 6,017 square kilometers which has been declared a Natural World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged the international community earlier this week to join Bangladesh's efforts to save this "natural green wonder" by clicking their support on and vote for the Sundarbans to become one of the New Natural Seven Wonders.
