Not just junior NTR but many other south stars came out to support quickly. Actors like Nithiin, Pawan Kalyan, Ram Charan and Mahesh Babu are standing strong for the cause during this distressing time with the financial aid. Tamil films actor Kamal Haasan has also suggested that he will turn his old residence into a temporary hospital where the COVID-19 patients can be treated. Bollywood too has done its own bit. Ayushmann Khurrana, Taapsee Pannu, Karan Johar, Sanjay Dutt, Rajkumar Hirani, Bhumi Pednekar, Dia Mirza, Rakul Preet etc are some of the celebs who supported the cause. Indeed, the celebs are making the best use of the stardom and influence that they have.
