The nation is coming together stronger than ever to support the families of the 45 CPRF jawans who lost their lives in the ghastly terrorist attack in Pulwama district of Kashmir where a suicide bomber rammed his vehicle full of explosives into an army bus. Condemning the act and coming up to support the families of the victims, many celebrities have donated to the various funds established to help the families of the army victims, the latest being the team of Total Dhamaal.
#BharatKeVeer is a trust created by the Home Ministry through which the public can contribute voluntarily to support the families of martyrs of Central Armed Paramilitary Forces. According to trade analyst and film critic Taran Adarsh, the entire crew including actors and makers of Total Dhamaal, donated Rs 50 lakhs. Sharing the news on his social media handle, Taran wrote, “Team #TotalDhamaal – the entire crew, actors and makers – donate ₹ 50 lakhs to families of soldiers who were martyred in the #Pulwama terror attack. #PulwamaAttack #PulwamaTerrorAttacks” (sic). Earlier, the actors of Total Dhamaal had taken to their Twitter handle to express their shock at the unfortunate incident and condemn it.
Earlier, actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Diljit Dosanjh among others had donated for the same. Salman offered help through his own charity fund, Being Human Foundation. Taking to his Twitter handle, Union Minister of Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju, thanked the actor and tweeted, “Thank you @BeingSalmanKhan on offering to contribute for Pulwama Martyrs through BEING HUMAN FOUNDATION. I’ll work out for handing over of the cheques in the account of #BharatKeVeer @BharatKeVeer” (sic).
On the other hand, Diljit Dosanjh had donated Rs 300,000 to the wives of the CRPF troopers who died in the terror attack and shared a snapshot of his donation receipt to the CRPF Wives Welfare Association on Sunday.
