The second wave of coronavirus was much more extreme and spread its wings across the country. The city of Mumbai is now past its prime and has seen a steady decrease in cases. But still, around 4,000 people test positive for the deadly virus every day, leading to a shortage of hospital beds. The authorities have therefore done their best to increase the beds as much as possible. Bollywood actors also helped them so that the infrastructure could be set up as quickly as possible.
It has now emerged that Bollywood superstar Ajay Devgn has made a significant contribution in this regard. With the help of his colleagues in Bollywood, he gave Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) a sum of Rs. 1 crore to help set up a 20 bed Covid intensive care unit. This makeshift hospital was erected at Bharat Scouts and Guides Hall, located in the Shivaji Park district of Mumbai. A report confirmed that the said amount was donated to BMC for the noble work of Ajay Devgn’s organization, NY Foundation.
This Covid intensive care unit is well equipped with para-monitors, ventilators, oxygen assistance and will be managed by doctors from PD Hinduja Hospital, located a short walk from Shivaji Park. Joy Chakraborty, COO of Hinduja Hospital, said it will be an extension of Hinduja and that food, linen, medicine, labor, etc. will be provided by their management. Meanwhile, local corporator Vishakha Raut confirmed that Ajay Devgn supported them in setting up the temporary ICU and appreciated the gesture. She also added that it was badly needed as the PD Hinduja Hospital was filled to capacity and there was a need for more intensive care beds nearby.
On the cinema front, Ajay Devgn was last seen in the Biggest Biggest of 2020, Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior. Its next release will be on Disney + Hotstar, the war drama, Bhuj – The pride of India and is slated for release on Independence Day 2021. As for its theatrical releases, it will be seen in the period sports film, Maidaan and during extended special appearances in the SS Rajamouli RRR and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. He will soon start to work on thank God, which also includes Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh. Finally, he is currently filming for his directorial company, Help, who also sees him as an actor with Amitabh Bachchan and Rakul Preet Singh.
