In the wake of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan recently took to his social media and extended his support to various funds and charities in order to help the government to battle Coronavirus.
On Thursday, Shah Rukh Khan took to his social media and expressed how we need to make the people who are working tirelessly for us in this tough hour to not feel lonely. Stating that the whole India and Indians are one big family, SRK 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 Shah Rukh Khan’s production house Red Chillies Entertainment via their official social media accounts shared a lengthy note penned down by Shah Rukh Khan. In the note, SRK had shared a list of charities and funds he has extended his support to along with his various companies and brands like KKR, Red Chillies Entertainment, Meer Foundation, and Red Chillies VFX and many more. However, he did not specify any monetary amount he had donated.
He also announced that he will be collaborating with the Chief Ministers of Delhi, Maharashtra and West Bengal–Arvind Kejriwal, Uddhav Thackeray, and Mamta Bannerjee–to help them fight the pandemic.
SRK also lauded the efforts of the central government and state government in fighting the COVID-19 war. In the statement, SRK wrote:
“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,”
Now, the state government of Delhi and Maharashtra–Arvind Kejriwal and Uddhav Thackeray, have taken to their social media and have reciprocated the feelings.
Thanking SRK for his generosity, Arvind Kejriwal appreciated his gesture. He wrote:
“Thank you Shah Rukh ji for you kind words. Your generous contribution will touch many lives in this difficult hour.”

To which SRK, who is originally from Delhi, came up with a very humble response that read: “सर आप तो दिल्लीवाले हो, thank you मत करो, हुक्म करो। अपने दिल्लीवाले भाइयों और बहनों के लिए हम लगे रहेंगे। ईश्वर ने चाहा तो जल्द ही इस crisis से हम जीत कर निकलेंगे। More strength, resilience and power to your teams on ground sir.”
