Mumbai: Bollywood filmmaker Rohit Shetty is among those compassionate celebrities who believe in helping the people in need for the well-being of society. Shetty recently extended his support to Kerala flood victims by donating a considerable amount to a cause.
The filmmaker recently returned to Mumbai from Argentina and the first thing he did, was donate 21 lakh to Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund. Rohit Shetty, who believes in doing his bit towards helping people in Kerala, wasted no time in taking this decision and donating the money.
A source said, “For a few years now, Rohit has been actively supporting cancer patients and girls’ education. His office stays in touch with certain office-bearers from charitable organisations and hospitals who treat the less-privileged. He asks his trusted team to make him aware of how much money is needed to help patients who can’t afford treatments. The same holds true for education of children. Of course, the latest cause he chose to associate with is the Kerala flood relief work. The filmmaker knew he had to extend his support to those affected in his own way. He did that quietly without letting anyone know.”
Rohit Shetty is currently busy working on his next action-comedy ‘Simmba’ with Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan in the lead. Co-produced by Karan Johar, the film is set to hit screens on December 21....
