Like most other top heroes Young Rebel Star Prabhas pledged Rs.1 donation to the governments of Telugu states to ensure the amount is spent for the poor and needy in the wake of outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.
However, much to everyone's surprise, Prabhas hiked his donation to Rs.3 crore more. Altogether, he donated Rs.4 crores of which Rs.3 crore will be given to PM relief fund and Rs.50 lakh each to both the state governments.
According to the inside reports, Prabhas pledged Rs.3 crore donation to the BJP government on behalf of his pedananna and veteran hero Rebel Star Krishnam Raju. It is a known thing that Krishnam Raju is one of the top leaders of the BJP in Telugu states. Previously, BJP honroured him with union minister post.
Since Krishnam Raju isn't earning money due to his age factor, he let Prabhas donated Rs.3 crores on his behalf.
"Since many heroes pledged their donations to even PMRF in addition to CMRFs in spite of not being the BJP leaders, Krishnam Raju felt it would be fair to donate a huge sum to the BJP. That's why, such a huge amount was given to the PMRF and comparatively meagre amount was given to CM relief funds of Telugu states," an insider made it clear.
