Times have become really tough for millions and millions of Indians who are simply trying to survive during the national lockdown.

Movie stars from the south were among the first to respond to the crisis and donate generously to the prime minister's relief fund.

Prabhas and his compatriots from the southern film industry took the first steps, and there were many more who followed.


Akshay Kumar has now contributed Rs 25 crore towards the PM-CARES Fund.

Rising star Kartik Aaryan has contributed Rs 1 crore, Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra have contributed Rs 21 lakh.
