Ajith donates Rs 1.25 crore to help coronavirus battle
A few days ago, many Tollywood stars including Prabhas, Pawan Kalyan and Chiranjeevi contributed huge amounts for relief measures carried out by both Central and State governments in order to contain the further spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Now, actor Ajith Kumar has come forward to donate Rs 50 lakh each to PM-CARES Fund and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister's Relief Fund. Apart from this, the actor has also contributed Rs 25 lakh to FEFSI (Film Employees Federation of South India) workers, who have lost their livelihood due to Covid-19 outbreak.
It is worth mentioning that, Sivakarthikeyan is one of the first actors in the Tamil industry to contribute Rs 35 lakhs for coronavirus relief works.
The pandemic has claimed over 70,000 lives across the globe and is spreading like a wildfire. Many celebrities are putting out creative videos and have been requesting people to follow precautionary measures to fight the deadly disease.
Shoots of all films and television shows have also been stopped for a brief period.
Ajith is currently working on a film titled Valimai, directed by H Vinoth. Touted to be an action thriller, the film also features Bollywood actress Huma Qureshi as the female lead.
Valimai also marks the second collaboration of Boney Kapoor and Ajith after Nerkonda Paarvai, the Tamil remake of Pink. The makers were supposed to shoot a major part of the film in Spain. However, due to the current situation, reports suggest that they have decided to cancel the abroad schedule.
