The situation in Kerala is looking very grim by now. Although the floods have affected the state for the past few days, it is very recently that our national media has finally acknowledged how serious the situation is in the stare. More than 150 people have died in one of the worst natural disasters our country has seen in recent times. Many people are still being evacuated from their homes to safer lands, and the army and the navy are doing their very best in the rescue operations. The total losses Kerala has faced due to these unprecedented floods go into thousands of crore of rupees.
In this situation, what Kerala needs right now is a smooth flow of timely help, sharing emergency numbers and financial aid. Many South stars like Mammootty, Mohanlal, Vijay, Suriya, Ajith Kumar, Nayanthara etc have donated generously for the cause. Meanwhile, Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma, Shahid Kapoor are also urging citizens to help the state in its need. Check out their tweets below -
