The NGO thanked Hrithik Roshan for extending his support to provide meals to daily wage earners, senior citizens and low-income groups.
These are tough times and every bit of help extending to the marginalised communities goes a long way. Hrithik Roshan has tied up with an NGO called Akshaya Patra, that is now providing 1.2 lakh meals for senior citizens, daily wage workers and low-income groups during the lockdown period thanks to the Bollywood star’s contribution.
The NGO took to Twitter to thank the star and wrote, "We are happy to share, our Foundation is now empowered by superstar Hrithik Roshan. Together, we will facilitate 1.2 lakh nutritious cooked meals to old age homes, daily wage labourers & low income groups across India, until normalcy in work routine (sic)."
