The second wave of the coronavirus pandemic has hit India really hard. A lot of Bollywood celebs came under severe criticism for flying off to the Maldives when the country is reeling under deaths and devastation. They were slammed for posting holiday pics and showing off their privileged lives. At the same time, some actors decided to step forward and use their social media reach to assist people in need. Let us take a look at the stars who are shining brightly in the darkest hours...
The actress is one of the finest performers of this generation, and also juggles multiple roles. She is a climate warrior. Bhumi Pednekar who herself is recovering from COVID-19 has decided to do her bit for the situation. The actress has started an online campaign to assist people with COVID-19 resources. She has tied up with NGOs and other voluntary organizations. Bhumi Pednekar comes from an Army background and has proved that serving the nation is in her genes. We are sure many people will be indebted to her as the pandemic ends.
The handsome hunk has earned a lot of love and respect on social media. He has been tweeting and retweeting all COVID essentials in this phase. Sidharth Malhotra did this when his colleagues were basking in the tropical islands of the Maldives. Sidharth Malhotra used his social media account efficiently to make sure that people got some help. Kind, responsible, compassionate, Sidharth Malhotra's attitude has won hearts.
People will remember Sonu Sood for generations as Messiah of the Poor. In the first wave of the coronavirus, he addressed the plight of the workers who had to leave Mumbai due to factories shutting down. He made arrangements to send them home in buses. Now, he has actively immersed himself in scouting for oxygen cylinders, beds, plasma and medicines like Remdesivir for patients. He has said that he is getting desperate calls from people.
The actor who had a successful career on TV transitioned into films some years ago. Gurmeet Chaudhary along with a few friends has formed a team to assist people who are looking for resources in this pandemic. He also travelled to places like Lucknow, Dehradun and other cities to take stock of the situation. Fans have been reaching out to him on a large scale.
We wish them the best in their endeavours. This is the time when someone has to show 'Asli Desh Prem' as said by Bhumi Pednekar on social media.
