Monsoon of 2019 became a menace for millions of families in India as the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Assam, and Bihar have been facing catastrophic floods since early July 2019, where nearly 40 districts were submerged underwater. The human death toll in Karnataka rose to nearly 76 as of August 18 as rescue operations are still on. There have been several charities working to help the flood-affected areas in Maharashtra and Karnataka by distributing emergency kits that will be helpful to those affected by the floods.

Sharing the links to donate for the flood-affected areas, she wrote, "The families living through #KarnatakaFloods and #MaharashtraFloods need our help!"
