The world economy is predicted to go into recession due to the extreme impact of the COVID 19 outbreak. The lockdown across the globe has resulted in many industries shutting down and the staggering of imports and exports. India too is currently under a 22-day lockdown that has adversely effected the daily wagers and service providers. To make up for this depression in the economy, Prime Minister Modi started a PM CARES fund, where people can donate money to help pay the daily wagers and provide an adequate supply of food for all.
Joining in this cause, celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Varun Dhawan, Katrina Kaif, Kartik Aaryan and many more have contributed to the relief fun. Latest to join the bandwagon is Vicky Kaushal, who pledged an amount of Rs. 1 crore to the relief fund. The actor took to social media to announce his contribution and said, ”While I’m blessed enough to be seated with my loved ones in the comforts of my home, I humbly pledge to contribute an amount of Rs. 1 crore to PM-CARES and Maharashtra Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. We are in this together and we’ll win this together. Let us all do our bit for a healthier and stronger future.”
The actor is currently spending his ‘social distancing’ days with his family and has been sharing some inside pictures from home on his social media.
