The central and state governments have set up several relief funds to gather financial help for their fight against COVID -19. Many actors have come forward to contribute to the relief funds in the past week. Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal and many more announced that they would be doing their bit to help garner all the help needed in these trying times.
The latest to join the bandwagon were Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan. The two, under the names of their companies, Red Chillies, Meer Foundation and Kolkata Knight Riders contributed towards the PM CARES and CM of Maharashtra’s relief fund.
The official handle of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra thanked the couple for the gesture. Responding to his message, SRK tweeted, “à¤¹à¥à¤¯à¤¾ à¤²à¤¢à¤¾à¤à¤¤ à¤à¤ªà¤£ à¤¸à¤à¤³à¥ à¤à¤à¤¤à¥à¤° à¤à¤¹à¥à¤¤ à¤à¤¾à¤°à¤£ à¤¥à¥à¤à¤¬à¥ à¤¥à¥à¤à¤¬à¥ à¤¤à¤³à¥ à¤¸à¤¾à¤à¥. à¤¸à¤°à¥à¤µà¤¾à¤à¤¨à¥ à¤¥à¥à¤¡à¥ à¤¥à¥à¤¡à¥ à¤ªà¥à¤°à¤¯à¤¤à¥à¤¨ à¤à¥à¤²à¥ à¤¤à¤° à¤à¤à¤®à¤¦à¤¤à¥à¤à¤¾ à¤®à¤¹à¤¾à¤¸à¤¾à¤à¤° à¤¤à¤¯à¤¾à¤° à¤¹à¥à¤à¤².. à¤à¤ªà¤²à¥à¤¯à¤¾ à¤®à¤¾à¤°à¥à¤à¤¦à¤°à¥à¤¶à¤¨à¤¾à¤¸à¤¾à¤ à¥ à¤§à¤¨à¥à¤¯à¤µà¤¾à¤¦!
