For those who stay in 10x 10feet room social distancing is luxury , sanitisers out of their reach and basic food also getting tougher day by day . This is the time to be with them and to let them know that we are together in this.”

We at @savethechildrenindia will ensure every donation is used only for relief work.” The actor in the video requested all his fans to help and support the vulnerable families.
