One of the celebrities in the forefront of spreading awareness and knowledge about Covid 19, Farhan Akhtar has been relentless in his support for those affected by the pandemic.
Yesterday Farhan wrote shared a list of organisations that @excelmovies has donated to thus far, in the fight against COVID-19. “From oxygen to ambulances to food, they are doing some incredible work on the ground. Encourage you to do your bit to help. Every rupee matters. Jai Hind. @ritesh_sid.”
Hemkunt Foundation, Doctor For You, Mission Vayu, Rasoi On Wheels, Give India, Hope Welfare Trust, SBS Foundation, Sathyarth Socio are some of the organisation names shared by Farhan that are providing oxygen cylinders, food for quarantined patients, medication to everyone tackling the virus.
Today he shared his indignation at a news report he read on people manufacturing and selling fake medicines. The tweet below!
Seen a news report of people manufacturing & selling fake Covid medication. You have to be a special kind of monster to con people in these dark & desperate times. Shame on you, whoever you are!!!

Recently, Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar donated 100 oxygen concentrators, doing their bit in the fight against COVID-19. Suniel Shetty also joined an initiative to donate free oxygen concentrators to the homes of BPL individuals and families. Apart from them, Ayushmann Khurrana and his wife Tahira Kashyap came forward to contribute to the Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s Relief Fund to help people crippled by the COVID-19 pandemic in the state. Salman Khan also came forward and restarted his food trucks to distribute food packets among the frontline workers in Mumbai.
Amid the surge in cases, many stars like Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt, Mira Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, among others have been using social media to amplify the voices of those in need.
