Prakash Raj is doing his bit to ensure that the effect of the coronavirus lockdown is a little less devastating on those who work for him and the one around him. Today on his birthday he gave shelter to 11 stranded workers from Pondicherry, Chennai, and Khammam.
He found a way to pay daily wage workers affected by the stalling of the shoot of his three upcoming films. The actor took money out of his reserve funds to pay his staff and film personnel and said he will continue to do more to help the needy. To make sure that they do not suffer because of work being stopped in this period of crisis, the actor said that he has paid his staff their salaries till May.
He posted on Twitter, On my birthday today… I did this, gave shelter to 11 stranded workers from Pondichery, Chennai, Khammam… It’s not just the government’s responsibility, it’s ours too. let’s celebrate humanity… let’s fight this united.”
