Prabhas donated Rs 75 lakhs for farmers in Tamil Nadu: Karthi
Prabhas is hugely popular across the country thanks to the massive success of the Baahubali franchise. He enjoys a huge fan base, ranging from kids to elders, who were all sweeped by his extraordinary performance in Baahubali. Beneath the gigantic figure that Prabhas is, lies a charming and benevolent personality who is fondly called darling by the masses.
Prabhas keeps a low profile and is generally a very shy person. Inspite of being such a big star, he does not wish to stay in the limelight outside cinema. Recently, Tamil actor Karthi revealed about Prabhas’s kind-heartedness to donate a hefty sum for the poor farmers in Tamil Nadu.
Karthi was recently in Hyderabad for the promotions of his upcoming Tamil movie Theeran Adhigaram Ondru, which is also being dubbed in Telugu as Khakee. During a promotional event, Karthi revealed that Prabhas had donated Rs 75 lakhs for the for the cause of the farmers in Kadaluru district when severe famine hit the area.
Karthi has been using the money for providing training in sports and games besides providing education for children in around 30 villages in Tamil Nadu. This is a very noble gesture by Prabhas to help the needy. Unlike most actors, Prabhas has also not publicized it until Karthi revealed it.
Recently, Tamil actor Vijy Sethupathi also donated Rs 49.70 lakhs for the development of educational institutions in the state of Tamil Nadu. He transferred the money that he earned through endorsements. He donated the money in memory of medical aspirant Anitha, who recently committed suicide after her longtime dream to become doctor was shattered due to the controversial NEET exam.
It is very heartening to see actors being social responsible and lending their helping hands to the underprivileged section of the society. Wish more actors follow suit.
