Shah Rukh Khan has tweeted to state that this is the time when all Indians must be united as one family and do our little bit to look after each other.
In a social media post he sent out on Thursday evening, on his Twitter handle @iamsrk, the actor wrote: “In these times it’s imp to make everyone around you working tirelessly for you.. not related to u.. to feel they are not alone and by themselves. Let’s just make sure we will do our little bit to look after each other. India and all Indians are One Family.”
Earlier, on @RedChilliesEnt, the Twitter handle of his producrion house Red Chillies Entertainment, the actor gave out a lengthy statement announcing his contributions to the current fight against COVID-19 through his group companies — Kolkata Knight Riders, Red Chillies Entertainment, Meer Foundation and Red Chillies VFX.
He also lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the government’s efforts in fighting the COVID-19 war. He, however, did not specify any monetary amount to specify how much he would be donating.
Given the enormity of the task, my team and I discussed ways to contribute in our own modest way. We have come up with a series of initiatives, which we hope will make a small difference.
The efforts of our Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji coupled with the efforts of the Chief Ministers, Shri Uddhav Thackeray ji, Smt Mamata Banerjee, Shri Arvind Kejriwal and all other States and Union Territories leaders have been commendable in fighting this pandemic.
We have initially focused our efforts on the three cities — Mumbai, Kolkata and New Delhi with the realization that this is a start and we stand ready to contribute in whichever way possible going forward,’ the actor said in the statement.
