The Indian skipper Virat Kohli, on Monday, pledged to donate an undisclosed amount to the PM CARES fund and Maharashtra’s CM Relief Fund along with his wife and the Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma. Ever since then, there has been a sense of interest among the fans to know the exact amount donated by the power couple. And if the sources are to be believed, Kohli and Anushka have jointly donated Rs 3 crore for the noble cause.
The couple has been actively creating awareness about the Coronavirus during their self-isolation. They have time and again urged the fans and followers to stay at home and wash their hands regularly during this period. Rather Anushka also gave a demo on how to wash to hands properly.
A couple of days ago, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the nation to donate to the PM’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situation (PM-CARES) fund and since then, various celebrities along with the common people are doing their bit. Even several Indian cricketers have already pledged to donate a certain amount in a bid to help India fight against the Coronavirus.
Virat Kohli and Anushka join the bandwagon
Accordingly, Virat Kohli, early on Monday, took to his official Twitter handle and pledged to donate an undisclosed amount to the concerned Relief funds. “Anushka and I are pledging our support towards PM-CARES Fund and the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (Maharashtra). Our hearts are breaking looking at the suffering of so many and we hope our contribution, in some way, helps easing the pain of out fellow citizens #IndiaFightsCorona,” he wrote in his tweet.
