Megastar Amitabh Bachchan said on Thursday that he has distributed 2,000 food packets for lunch and dinner at various places in the city for people affected by the lockdown due to the coronavirus epidemic.
With these packets, the 77-year-old actor said, efforts are on to provide around 3,000 bags of monthly provisions.
“On the personal front, 2,000 packets of food are being served every day for lunch and dinner at various places in the city and large bags of monthly provision, about 3,000 bags, which will take care of at least 12,000 mouths in the process,” Bachchan said. I wrote on my blog.
The actor said that places like Haji Ali Dargah, Mahim Dargah, Babulnath Temple, slums in Bandra and some other slums in the inner north of the city would benefit from the initiative. Although the provision to reach the needy was “a practice”, the actor hopes to have some work soon.
