Big B Wants To Do Something Similar For Migrants From The South
Bachchan intends to do something similar for migrants from the south who are stuck in Mumbai and are unable to find means of transport to reach home safely.
He Had Arranged Buses Earlier
Earlier, Amitabh had organized ten buses for migrants looking to make their way home to Uttar Pradesh from Mumbai.
Actor Sonu Sood has been doing an incredible job helping out migrants in this time of crisis. He was among the first Bollywood celebs to arrange transport for migrants, from Maharashtra to their home states such as Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.
He also arranged flights for migrant girls from Odisha, who were stuck in Kerala, for Assamese migrants in Mumbai, and most recently, for Barak Valley residents stuck in Mumbai.
Right from the beginning of the pandemic, the Hindi film industry has been going all out to help those in distress in this time of crisis.
