Is saal hum corona ki wajah se punyatithi ka karyakram nahi kar sake, iska hamein dukh hai. Is saal hum Dinanath Pratishthan ki taraf Priti Patkar ji ki Prerana Foundation ko panch lakh aur meri taraf se das lakh ki rashi de rahein hain (Today is the 78th death anniversary of my revered father Master Dinanath Mangeshkar ji. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we could not perform certain rituals related to his death anniversary this time. I feel deeply saddened because of that. We are donating a sum of 5 lakhs to Priti Patkar ji's Prerana Foundation on behalf of Dinanath Pratishthan along with an additional 10 lakhs from me)".
