India is going through a horrific second wave of COVID-19. There are around 4 lakh daily cases being recorded every day and the death toll is around 4000 each day. Now, in such horrid times, the makers of Prabhas-Pooja Hegde starrer Radhe Shyam have decided to donate the entire set property of 50 custom beds, stretchers, personal protective equipment, medical equipment stands and oxygen cylinders to a Hyderabad hospital for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
They had created a hospital set for the film’s shoot. According to reports, since Radhe Shyam is almost done with the shooting, the makers dismantled the hospital set from a private studio and transported it to their warehouse on the outskirts of Hyderabad.
When contacted, the film’s production designer Ravinder Reddy told Deccan Chronicle, “These beds have been custom designed; they are big, strong and are patient-friendly.” He added that they have all the comforts that a bed-ridden patient can leverage.
Ravinder said that he had gotten in touch with the CEO of a private hospital for a bed for one of his relatives and was apprised that beds were not available. He realised the acute shortage and the gravity of the issue. He stated, “Soon, I asked my filmmakers if we could contribute our hospital set, which we built for the film, for the Covid-19 patients. They immediately agreed.”
He went on to add that they transported the entire set property in nine big trucks. He said that the team members including Prabhas have expressed happiness over the set property equipment being used for the Covid-19 patients. “Everyone is hoping that the current crises go off and normalcy will be restored soon,” he concluded.
Directed by Radha Krishna Kumar, Radhe Shyam is an upcoming romantic drama which will be released in six languages – Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, English and Kannada.
