From providing PPEs kits, their personal properties and office, and other necessities, the actor has been making sure that the warriors are well equipped to fight the battle. Recently, SRK through Meer Foundation provided 2000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits to Chhattisgarh for its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

On a related note, Shah Rukh Khan completed 28 years in the film industry in 2020. He feels it's the people who allowed him to entertain them for almost three decades. On the release date of his debut film, SRK had taken to Instagram to thank his fans and wrote, "Don't know when my passion became my purpose and then turned into my profession. Thank you all for so many years of allowing me to entertain you. More than my professionalism I believe my passionalism will see me through many more years of service to all of you. 28 years and counting. Thank you Gauri Khan for capturing this moment"
