A lot of celebrities from Bollywood have contributed a generous amount of money to help fight the coronavirus menace in India.
The latest celebrity to join this list is Shah Rukh Khan.
SRK has announced a series of initiatives to support the Covid-19 battle by donating to seven organisations. He is donating through his four companies Red Chillies Entertainment, Kolkata Knight Riders, Meer Foundation and Red Chillies VFX.
In these times it’s imp to make everyone around u working tirelessly for u.. not related to u.. perhaps even unknown to u... to feel they are not alone and by themselves. Let’s just make sure we all do our little bit to look after each other. India and all Indians are One Family. https://t.co/LWz4wQGaPe— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 2, 2020
He pledged his support to organisations including PM Cares, Maharashtra Chief Minister's Relief Fund, Roti Foundation, Ek Saath - The Earth Foundation among others. He urged everyone to come together and make each other "kinder, stronger and braver to face the days ahead."
Twitterati applauded Bollywood's Badshah for this generous donation.

Do it like SRK... Diversifies his contribution all across, from the PM-CARE funds, to CM Relief fun and also steps in to support the daily wage workers and health care staff. Basically, a comprehensive to the point plan in the time of crises. Well done @iamsrk #SRKDonatesForCovid https://t.co/WgW7zmyAoO— Himesh (@HimeshMankad) April 2, 2020
