Power star Pawan Kalyan, Ram Charan, Nithiin, Trivikram and a host of other Tollywood (Telugu) celebs have come forward to show generous side by making rich donations to the relief fund for the coronavirus pandemic.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has brought the life to stand still in the Telugu states. The Telugu filmmakers have postponed their film shoots and release. Many celebs went on to spread awareness about the COVID-19 infection and requested their fans to stay at homes during the lockdown announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The lockdown for 21 days is affecting the lives of daily wagers and other roadside business people, who are in great problems, which have raised a big concern for the governments. After seeing the situation some celebs came forward to help the community in the time of pandemic and made generous donations for the coronavirus outbreak. Nithiin was probably the first celeb to donate money to the relief fund.
