Like many of his colleagues and friends from Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan is also lending a helping hand to the poor and needy in this time of crisis. The Badshah of Bollywood has made huge donations through his various organizations to daily-wage earners and those affected by coronavirus. Surprised by his enormous generosity, a couple of politicians thanked the actor for his support. Now, after helping daily-wage workers and COVID-19 patients, Shah Rukh Khan has extended his support to the frontline medical-care team. The actor has provided them with 25,000 PPE kits. Touched by this gesture, Mr. Rajesh Tope, Minister Of Public Health and Family Welfare Maharastra, has expressed his gratitude to the actor for his kind and noble deed.
Taking to his official Twitter handle, Mr. Rajesh Tope wrote, "Many thanks Mr. Shah Rukh Khan for your kind contribution of 25,000 PPE kits. This will go a long way in supporting our fight against COVID19 & protecting our frontline medical care team @iamsrk. @MeerFoundation @CMOMaharashtra."
Responding to his words, Shah Rukh Khan tweeted, "Thank you sir for all your help to source the kits. We are all together in this endeavour to protect ourselves and humanity. Glad to be of service. May your family & team be safe and healthy."
There's a reason why Shah Rukh Khan is called the King of Hearts. The actor recently penned down a long note of encouragement to help people deal with this crisis. A part of his note read: "This is a moment for all of us to come together in a collective effort to make each other kinder, stronger and braver to face the days ahead. This crisis is not going to pass in a hurry, it will take its time and its toll on us. It will allow us that there isn't really a choice between looking out for ourselves and looking out for one another. There's nothing more obvious in the spread of this pandemic than the fact that each one of us is inextricably connected to each other, without any distinction."
On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Zero.
