Farhan Akhtar donates 1000 PPE kits to police


Writer, Director, Actor Farhan Akhtar has donated 1,000 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits to police officers to ensure that they do not have to fight the coronavirus battle unarmed. He has partnered with celebrity shoutout platform Tring to raise funds for more, and is offering video chats, personalised videos and shoutouts to donors.

The first batch of kits has already reached the Vakola police station in Mumbai.

Shharing a picture of the PPE kits being shipped from the factory, Farhan wrote on Twitter, “Thanks for your support, you amazing people. Our first batch of PPE kits are on its way to Vakola Police Station from the factory. Let’s protect our frontline warriors. Jai Hind.” He also requested people to contribute.

Maharashtra has been the worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic in India. More than 1,000 police officers in the state have tested positive for the deadly virus while eight have died due to the disease.

Recently, the title track of Farhan’s directorial debut, Dil Chahta Hai, was recreated by Shankar Mahadevan. The song, made in collaboration with Berklee Indian Ensemble, featured a special cameo by the filmmaker, who was seen dancing to it at his own home.

Farhan was also a part of the I for India concert – he recited a poem and performed his song Tum Hi Toh with his band, from their respective homes. The online fundraising concert raised Rs 52 crore for coronavirus relief efforts.
