Many feel stars indulge in shocking calculations before turning noble stars. While few like Nithin, Rajasekhar are exceptions, others wait for top stars, how much they donate before they takeout from the pocket. They calculate since a top star who has so much market and draws so much remuneration is donating this amount, they calculate proportionally and donate accordingly. These calculations are leaving all shellshocked.
