Hyderabad: At the fundraiser art show for Vizag relief, four youngsters were seen taking pointers on raising more funds for the port city torn apart by Hudhud. 
 
After hearing of the devastation, and not being very satisfied with the corporate donations, the four, a techie, a doctor, an assistant professor and one in the printing business, brainstormed for  one “unique plan” that would rake in more money. 
 
And they did. The plan that Vikram Jammula, Bhavya Bayana, Samanvitha Reddy and Vikram Reddy conceptualised is a sure-shot way of getting people to shell out, autographed and personalised portraits of celebs from the film industry to even politicos. 
 
“We are trying to rope in actresses like Catherine Teresa, Kajal Aggarwal, Shriya Saran and the likes. The picture, which will be the only one of its kind, will then be printed on canvas and autographed by the celebs along with a personal message. We are working on different-sized canvases to ensure that they are affordable for as many people as possible,” explains an employee of TCS and photographer, Jammula.
To ensure that they have the trust of the buyers, they are planning to set up a non-profit organisation called V2 Foundation, through which the funds will be directed.
