Mumbai : The megastar of bollywood Amitabh Bachchan is known to actively use social media sites like Twitter and was one of the few Bollywood stars who first wrote a blog. And the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) has named him the Social Media Person of the Year. 

He is one of those celebrities who has a wide reach among masses and has truly used social media to its full potential to create awareness about various health issues.

He’s not only a brand ambassador for the polio awareness campaign where he proudly urges people to go to the polio booths to give their children the oral polio vaccine. He also promoted the ‘Do Boond Zindagi Ki’ campaign widely from his twitter account. 

When India was declared polio free he tweeted ‘Finally! India has been removed from endemic list. By end of 2014, we shall be polio free country. A sense of pride.’

After the polio eradication was successful, he supported the emancipation of the girl child. He tweeted ‘As UN ambassador for Girl Child, I hope and pray we accomplish same results as polio…rid nation of discrimination against women.

Recently, he also said that if there would be an anti-tobacco campaign he would willingly lend his voice to it as he doesn’t smoke and it would be very close to his heart.
