"Team #GreenIndiaChallenge is delighted to have you on board SuperStar @SrBachchan Ji! It's a privilege for all of us. Honored to be with you while you plant a sapling. Your kind encouraging words for your fans and others to take this up would mean a lot for us [email protected]," Santosh Kumar tweeted.

The MP also gifted the Superstar his book 'Vruksha Vedam'. The book highlights the importance of planting trees and improving greenery. The challenge and the book have been recently appreciated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well.

The event took place in Ramoji Film City where Amitabh is shooting for Project-K. Akkineni Nagarjuna, Producer Aswini Dutt and Film City MD Vijayeshwari also participated in this program.
