Even as flood-ravaged Kerala breathes a sigh of collective relief as the rains have ceased, giving the citizens of God's Own Country much needed respite, the state is confronted with the daunting task of rehabilitation.

Karan Johar, Varun Dhawan, Chitrangada Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Anushka Sharma have created awareness about the magnitude of what the Centre describes with strange understatement as a 'serious calamity' and urge Indians everywhere to do whatever they can do to help.

Many film folk have contributed financially to the cause.

While Shah Rukh Khan's Meer Foundation, named after his father, has donated Rs 21 lakh (Rs 2 million) to the flood victims, Jacqueline Fernandez has committed Rs 5 lakh (Rs 500,000) to the NGO Habitat for Humanity India's Kerala Flood Relief Programme.

Malayalam superstar Mammootty and his son Dulquer Salmaan have donated Rs 25 lakh (Rs 2.5 million).
