Chiranjeevi has revealed that Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who was recently scene in Sye Raa, has arranged 12,000 Corona Relief Coupons of Rs 1500 to the daily wage workers of Telugu film industry.
It is known that Chiranjeevi has his own charity trust under which he has now created the Corona Crisis Charity. He has been providing essentials to the daily wage workers of the Telugu film industry, who have facing troubles after the filmy activities were stalled due to the lockdown caused by the corona.

Amitabh Bachchan is one of such leading actors of Bollywood. He has starred in some Tollywood films and Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is one recent example for it. Megastar Chiranjeevi apparently approached Big B seeking his support for the daily wage workers of Tollywood. He came forward to contribute generously for them. He is said to have sent relief coupons worth Rs 1.80 crore.
