The havoc caused by the deadly Coronavirus aka COVID-19 has enabled a number of countries including India to implement a complete lockdown till April 14. With the number of infected increasing rapidly, shoots of web series, television shows and films all across the nation have been cancelled until further notice. This shutdown left daily wage employees jobless and without an income to survive the crisis. Considering this, celebrities are leaving no stone unturned to extend financial help by contributing to the relief fund set up Governments and NGOs across the globe. After celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif, Kartik Aaryan, Shilpa Shetty, Anushka Sharma, Sara Ali Khan, Alia Bhatt and many others, Madhuri Dixit has also joined in to support those in need.
Madhuri, today, on Instagram, informed that her husband Dr. Shriram Nene and she will be contributing to PM-CARES Fund as well as Maharashtra Chief Minister's relief fund. "All of us should join hands to win this war for humanity. Doing our bit by donating to the PM CARES Fund & CM's Relief Fund. Let's come out of this stronger. Love Madhuri & Ram," the actress wrote.
On the other hand, Ajay Devgn extended his support to the Federation of Western India Cinema Employees (FWICE) to assist employees and daily wage crew members in the cine field. Filmmaker and social activist Ashoke Pandit who is the President of Indian Film & TV Directors' Association (IFTDA), thanked Ajay for contributing Rs.51 lacs to FWICE. "Dear @ajaydevgn we thank U for your generous contribution of 51 lakhs towards @fwice_mum, for the benefit of our 5 lakh #CineWorkers. U have proved time & again, especially in times of crisis, that U are a real life #Singham. God bless U," Ashoke wrote on Twitter.
