Although Tollywood stars and filmmakers reacted bit late, they came up with massive donations to state, central governments to fight coronavirus pandemic and also contributed to CCC (Corona crisis charity) to help the daily wage workers in the industry.
In case of Kollywood, they reacted instantly, but they didn’t contribute much to help the most affected people in the industry. Rajinikanth’s 50 lakhs donation is the highest among Kollywood stars, wherein most of the others donated between 10 to 20 lakhs. As is known, a total close to 8 Cr has been collected through CCC. Other than this, most of the top stars donated in crores to Corna relief fund.
In the meantime, veteran actress and YSRCP MLA Roja’s husband Rk Selvamani who is a known Tamil director made sensational comments over donations of Tamil stars.
“There are nearly 25000 workers in South India. And out of them, 18000 people are daily wage workers. Tamil stars come forward and help them. The actors have been taking exorbitant remunerations, but when it comes to the donation they have been giving only a few lakhs which is not a good sign.”
It has to be seen how Kollywood stars react to Rk Selvamani’s comments.
