Celebrities ranging from sporting icons to Bollywood stars are contributing in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last week announced a new fund called the PM’s Citizen Assistance and Relief Emergency Situations (PM-CARES) to help in the fight against the pandemic.

Shilpa Shetty and husband Raj Kundra are the latest to donate Rs 21 lakh to PM-CARES fund. “There is no better exercise for the heart than to reach out and lift the helpless. They say, nothing is excess or less when your actions are intended for a better tomorrow… give what you can to do your bit. @rajkundra9,” she wrote on Instagram.

However, she is not the only star to have pledged her support to Modi’s relief fund as the country grapples with ways to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

Action star Akshay Kumar replied to PM’s tweet announcing the fund and said that he would be donating Rs 25 crore.

Another power couple to have donated to the newly devised fund is that of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli.
