The actor who recently charmed the audience with his performance in the movie Gold, Bollywood actor Kunal Kapoor's crowdfunding platform Ketto has raised Rs 1.2 crore for rehabilitation work in flood-hit Kerala. He says it is overwhelming to see people come forward and support a cause.
Kerala has been hit hard by the worst floods in a century, leaving hundreds dead and thousands displaced and homeless.
"Besides the incredible work being done by the army, there are a number of organisations and NGOs that are working tirelessly to rescue and rehabilitate people. We want to provide as much support as we can for these organisations so that they can effectively carry out their work," Kunal said in a statement.
