There are stars who stay away from social causes, there are others who make a huge hue and cry with a lot of photo-ops when they do any charitable work And then there is Shah Rukh Khan! While many of his Bollywood peers have been asking people to help Kerala in its dire straits by contributing to the CM's relief fund, Shah Rukh Khan's Twitter feed was silent. But that didn't mean that he was silent too.
Oscar-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty (Slumdog Millionaire) has been rigorously seeking for aid for his statesmen on social media, In his tweets, he mentioned that he had reached out to Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and fellow Oscar winner AR Rahman for help, and all the three reacted quickly. He had tweeted, "I have personally reached out to most of them @SrBachchan @iamsrk and @arrahman were quick to react and we are consolidating our fare share of help to #Keralafloods and my fraternity says #istandwithkerela I’m humbled! Thank you so much !"
Later for Shah Rukh Khan only, he tweeted out, "Thank you so much @iamsrk me personally and the people of kerala are indebted to you for your generosity and quick action...respect". While he doesn't mention what kind of generous help Shah Rukh Khan has provided, we can guess it must be a huge amount to deserve this big thanks.
Thank you so much @iamsrk me personally and the people of kerala are indebted to you for your generosity and quick action...respect

In the past, also, Shah Rukh Khan had contributed Rs 1 crore for the aid of Chennai 2015 flood victims through his company Red Chillies Entertainment. There was no huge reporting over this grand generosity too. Shah Rukh Khan has proven once again that he would rather let his kind heart speak for him than various photo-ops and stage functions.
