When we say ‘mybmc’ then it’s with a sense of ownership and pride in all the efforts your teams are putting up to fight covid 19. We both are thankful that we could be a part of your attempts to help and care for Mumbaikars.— Gauri Khan (@gaurikhan) April 4, 2020

In this dark time of COVID-19, celebs and influential figures came out in large numbers to support and help the human race survive this pandemic. On April 24, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan had announced lending their office located in Khar Mumbai, to be turned into a quarantine centre for BMC. This move of the couple was appreciated by BMC by posting a thank you note for them. Gauri Khan and Shah Rukh both had also reciprocated to this thank you note, by terming it their responsibility.
But it’s over a month now and office premises of this ace couple still remains unused due to the lack of doctors as per reports in Mumbai Mirror. As per reports in the tabloid, Congress leader and corporator for this zone, Asif Zakaria also pulled up BMC for the lack in the facility and suggesting to ask the private practitioners to join the front line workers. Hoping to ultimately put the facilities provided in these bleak times to use. Reports also stated of receiving no reply from SRK and his team on his issue.
Asif Zakaria was quoted saying, “On one hand there is a severe shortage of beds for COVID patients and even those with other ailments, and on the other hand an entire building is not being utilised. The BMC must do something about this; rope in private practitioners, get in touch with hospitals, but the facility must be used.”
Shah Rukh Khan who is the brand ambassador of West Bengal, also lent his support to the state after it was majorly affected with Cyclone Amphan.
