Raghava Lawrence has received a lot of praise after he donated a large sum to the flood-hit Kerala. Many have appreciated his gesture, comparing it with other stars of South India who have paid lesser the amount than him.

But the humble filmmaker and actor has responded to the criticism, saying that the film industry veterans have helped him reach a position where he is able to give donations. He named Sri Raghavendra Swamy and credited stars, producers and filmmakers who helped him shape his career. Below, find his complete post:
