Malayalam stars should learn from Prabhas, Kerala minister slams over flood relief donations

Film stars from across the country have come forward for their contribution to Kerala relief fund. Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and many others came out to help flood-hit Kerala. South celebs Dulquer Salmaan, Vijay Sethupathi, Sidharth, Dhanush, Kamal Haasan among others have donated money to help the victim of Kerala floods. Just recently, music composer AR Rahman donated Rs 1 crore to the relief fund in Kerala. However, the contribution from Malayalam celebrities for the people of Kerala has hit the controversy. There’s a lot of buzz over the same on social media and recently, State Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran also slammed Malayalam actors for showing no contribution.

At the inauguration ceremony of ‘Care Kerala’ scheme for the rehabilitation of flood victims, Surendran criticised celebrities of the Malayalam film industry for not contributing to Kerala Relief fund. “We have superstars in our state. I have heard they get paid Rs 3-4 crore for a film. But, they all have to learn from the actor (Prabhas) from Andhra (Pradesh), who has no inclination towards Malayalam and still donated Rs 1 crore. He did not hesitate. He heard about the tragedy and came,” said Surendran at the event, which was presided over by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

Allu Arjun has donated Rs 25 lakh, Kamal Haasan Rs 25 lakh, Mammootty and Dulquer Salmaan Rs 25 lakh, Anupama Parameshwaran Rs 1 lakh, Vijay Sethupathi Rs 25 lakh, Siddharth Rs 10 lakh, Dhanush Rs 15 lakh, Sivakarthikeyan Rs 10 lakh, Nayanthara Rs 10 lakh, Vishal Rs 10 lakh, Chiyaan Vikram Rs 35 lakhs, Vijay Devarakonda Rs 5 lakh among others have helped their bit.

    When Prabhas did not make any noise about donating this much and why the minister? Its good to encourage others but it can’t be forced and nobody should be judged on the figures. I am a Prabhas fan myself but I do not approve of this attitude. The first donators should be these bloody corrupt politicians and businessmen.

    Right … first let him tell how much he is donating and other politicians are donating after looting people for years … easily to point fingers at actors … they work hard to make the money … Prabhas makes 25-30 Cr per movie he can afford to donate that and he is a big hearted guy … stop threatening actors to donate money

    Ya Mammooty gave 15L! and mohanlal 25! These guys are so rich – but as always really stingy when it comes to donating. And Dulquer gave just 10L! He’s probably not interested in Malayalam cinema and audience anymore.

    Its sad to see such ignorance towards human beings in India. It can happen to anybody and people of India should donate and help these people. They are your brothers and sisters in need. Remember if you ignore other in need then no one will help you when your time comes. Be a human being and fear the karma.
