The actor donated Rs 5 lakh to the family recently...
Hrithik Roshan is one of the Biggest Superstars in Bollywood, but he is still very down-to-earth. He loves to help and inspire people on a daily basis. And when Actor Kunal Kapoor, one of the founders of crowdfunding platform - Ketto, was looking for help for one of his overseas campaigns, Hrithik made sure he helped him.
As a source close to the development revealed, "A family based in the US, who suffered a personal tragedy, was desperately in need of Rs 5 lakh to lay a loved one to rest. The family was left wanting for funds to pay for the deceased’s funeral rites, which are expensive in that part of the world. Kunal posted on his social media accounts, asking people to come forward and help the family. When
Hrithik learnt about it, he asked for more details and asked his team to transfer the amount to the account of one of the family members of the departed. Hrithik is known to be a very giving person, who always steps in to help those in trouble and need."
Kunal shares, "Ketto was raising money for a family that had been hit by a tragedy. I put a post on social media, which Hrithik read. He called me and said he wanted to help the family. This is not the first time he has come forward to help. I hope a lot more people come forward and support such social and individual causes."
