By Deeptodyuti Das

As we see our country constantly cope up with the massive trauma and devastation of the coronavirus pandemic, we are also witnessing that our Indian Bollywood celebrities are coming out to provide help and rescue in this ongoing crisis. So now, let us see, what are they offering and what is their verdict amidst this immensely critical condition. 

Priyanka Chopra Jonas is now actively using her social media to share Covid-19 resources and in a video, she appealed, “We are appealing to you all to contribute to the healthcare system which is at a breaking point right now. It’s our humble request,” 

Akshay Kumar has always utilized his Twitter account to share resources and information. Apart from that, he has donated 10 million rupees to Gautam Gambhir’s foundation, from where free food, medicines, and required oxygen are getting distributed. Also, in 2020 250 million rupees of his donation have gone to PM Cares Fund. His firm statement continued, “These are really tough times, @GautamGambhir. Glad I could help. Wish we all get out of this crisis soon. Stay Safe.”

On the other hand, Twinkle Khanna posted an update by mentioning that, the couple has successfully secured 100 oxygen generators for those in need. After the second wave, she further proclaimed, “A big shout out to all of you who joined in donating toward this good cause by Diavik Foundation. Here are the oxygen concentrators all ready to ship,”

In retrospect, Sonu Sood has become one of the most active celebrities in assisting in all possible ways, from arranging beds for the sick to assisting with oxygen cylinders and life-saving injections. He also offered food for an entire village until lockdown. His telegram application, named India Fights Covid, connects suppliers of medicines and oxygen with volunteers. His very firm post statement goes as, “We will join hands and save this country,”
