Let’s just make sure we will do our little bit to look after each other. India and all Indians are One Family.”
In these times it’s imp to make everyone around u working tirelessly for u.. not related to u.. perhaps even unknown to u… to feel they are not alone and by themselves.

SRK praises PM Modi’s efforts to combat COVID-19
SRK also praised PM Narendra Modi and the efforts made by the government of India to combat the havoc created by COVID-19. Shah Rukh, however, has not specified the monetary amount that he will be donating.
Apart from contributing to the PM Cares Fund, SRK had also donated to other NGO’s such as The Roti Foundation, Ek Saath – The Earth foundation, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Healthcare Providers and Working People’s Charter. Through his company Red Chillies Entertainment, SRK and Gauri have committed to contributing to the Maharashtra CM’s Relief Fund.
Along with Ek Saath – The Earth foundation, SRK’s “Meer Foundation” would fulfill daily food requirements of more than 5500 families for nearly 30 days in Mumbai. Meer Foundation has also made a collaboration with Roti Foundation (founded by former Director General of Police, Maharashtra, Mr D. Sivanandhan). The organisation will provide food to daily wage laborers and underprivileged individuals. It will provide grocery and various other essential support for daily wage earners in relationship with Working People’s Charter.
