On Tuesday, actor Randeep Hooda shared an Instagram video announcing his collaboration with an NGO to provide oxygen concentrators.
At a time when oxygen is in short supply across the world, Randeep and NGO 'Khalsa Aid', hope to have at least 700 concentrators for the Covid-afflicted. People are stepping forward to provide assistance in whatever way they can in the midst of the country's pandemic situation. Many celebrities have joined the effort and have stepped forward to assist ordinary citizens. Celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra Jonas are also attempting to collect funds by partnering with other non-profit organisations (NGOs).
In the video, Randeep is seen holding placards with slogans like 'India needs oxygen,' 'Every 4 minutes, an individual dies from Covid-19,' 'Crematoriums and burials are running out of room,' and 'You can save precious lives,' among others. He requested people to donate to the cause in the video's caption, and he repeated his request in the caption.
"It's your chance to make a difference! People are dying from a shortage of oxygen in India, which is experiencing the worst of the pandemic. Let us band together to aid the country in its battle against #COVID and save lives.@khalsaaid_india is providing oxygen concentrators and we urge you to come forward and do you bit to help India breathe.”He said.
On the work front, Randeep Hooda stars alongside Salman Khan and Disha Patani in the Eid release 'Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai,' in which he plays the antagonist. On May 13, the Prabhu Deva-directed film will be released digitally as a pay-per-view release.
