In the fight against Covid-19, many Bollywood celebrities are coming forward to support the efforts of our PM Narendra Modi. And one such support is coming from King Khan. So, here is how Shah Rukh Khan is supporting the government.
He is coming up with a series of initiatives to help the government. In a statement, he appreciated the efforts of the government. Also, he addressed a few names- Shri Arvind Kejriwal, Shri Uddhav Thackeray Ji, Smt Mamata Banerjee, along with other leaders of states and Union Territories.
Here’s What He Said
He said, “We have initially focused the efforts on three major cities- New Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai.” this is a start, but whatever it takes, we are ready to contribute, he further added.
Furthermore, he said that the only real response to fight this crisis is to show the expression of humanity itself. So, we all have to come together and put efforts to help support others and face these tough times, he added.
Unfortunately, the pandemic will not go soon, and during this time, we all have no choices between looking to ourselves and others. We all are connected, and there is no distinction. So, whatever we all can do is only a small effort to stop this crisis. However, there is only one thing we can do now, face the challenge with courage and help or support each other.
His Message For Everyone
As a part of this nation, we all have to do our part best, and I am trying to do my best and expect the same from everyone. Together we can fight it and overcome the whole situation and its consequences. Moreover, he further added some lines:
Raat Ke Baad naye din ki Sahar aayegi,
Din Nahi badlega, tareeg Badal jayegi…”
Also, he stated, “ I pray for you and your families, please do the same for me.
Aur kripya karke…kuch dinon ke liye…ek doosre se sharirik taur se…thoda door….aur door…aur door…aur door.”
So, this was his message to everyone.
The key initiatives have begun with the aim to provide relief and spread awareness about the pandemic to people so that everyone can help.
