On Twitter on Thursday evening, Shah Rukh Khan wrote, “In these times it’s imp to make everyone around you working tirelessly for you.. not related to u.. to feel they are not alone and by themselves. Let’s just make sure we will do our little bit to look after each other. India and all Indians are One Family.”

Arvind Kejriwal wrote on Twitter, “Thank you Shah Rukh ji for you kind words. Your generous contribution will touch many lives in this difficult hour.”

“सर आप तो दिल्लीवाले हो, thank you मत करो, हुक्म करो। अपने दिल्लीवाले भाइयों और बहनों के लिए हम लगे रहेंगे। ईश्वर ने चाहा तो जल्द ही इस crisis से हम जीत कर निकलेंगे। More strength, resilience and power to your teams on ground sir,” SRK responded to Arvind Kejriwal.

“ह्या लढाईत आपण सगळे एकत्र आहोत कारण थेंबे थेंबे तळे साचे. सर्वांनी थोडे थोडे प्रयत्न केले तर एक मदतीचा महासागर तयार होईल.. आपल्या मार्गदर्शनासाठी धन्यवाद! We are all a family sir….and we need to be together to keep each other healthy.  Thank you,” he said on Twitter after Uddhav Thackeray thanked him for his support.

With this incredible initiative, Shah Rukh Khan has extended his support to his group of companies. From Government funds to 50,000 PPE kits, food requirements of 5500 Mumbai families, 2000 cooked meals to hospitals, 3 lakh meal kits for 10,000 people, grocery for 2500 daily wage workers in Delhi and 100 acid attack survivors, his range of initiatives aim to spread across the many segments of the society and are being lauded for the vision that the actor holds behind them.

In an effort to ensure that the basic necessities reach many who are being deprived of it in these trying times, the funds allocated will be distributed amongst the partners. The aim is not only to provide relief during the pandemic but also help raise awareness about COVID-19 and encourage more people to come forward and help.
