Richa Chadha, who has been busy shooting for her upcoming biopic Shakeela directed by Indrajit Lankesh, has raised funds to help her co-star Rajeev Pillai rebuild his native village in Kerala. Pillai had cancelled his wedding to help people affected by the floods.

As the floods are subsiding now and people are beginning to rebuild their lives, Rajeev Pillai and Richa Chadha are identifying kids who need financial help for education. The Fukrey actress has decided to pay for 5 young kids' education until class 10.

Speaking about it, Richa said, "It's a human responsibility to come together during adverse times and everyone should do their best in their capacity to show compassion for those suffering. In times of calamities, it's a collaborative effort of all who are willing to help. You could be anywhere but can always make a difference but doing the best you can and I pledged to support the post-floods rescue help by doing my bit."

Apart from helping Rajeev, Richa has also donated monetary funds to various relief funds across the state.
