Until hero Nithin has come forward donating 10 lakhs each to Telugu states CM Funds, no other big star moved his foot to talk about it. Following him, superstars including Chiranjeevi, Prabhas, Mahesh Babu, Ram Charan, Jr NTR, Allu Arjun and others have immediately donated to state governments, PM Cares Fund and also for the #CoronaCrisisCharity fund set up by TFI for Telugu industry’s daily wage workers.
Cut to star heroines like Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha, Tamanna, Nayantara and others who charge more than a couple of crores for each film, not even a lakh of donation has happened till now. Despite the fact that these starlets made it big in Tollywood, the way they are tight-lipped during crisis is a shocker. But not everyone will be the same. Heroine Lavanya Tripathi has donated 1 lakh for Corona Crisis Charity, claiming that it is her duty to help the people of the industry she is part of.
And then, Kannada girl Praneetha has started an initiative called Help the Helping Hands and pledged to donate 1 lakh to help 50 families with groceries and essentials. Also, she joined hands for a fundraiser with an NGO and the process is going good so far.
Hope these two starlets inspire other highest-paid actresses of the town to come forward and put their hand into their purse for the welfare of daily wage workers of Telugu cinema.
