Emphasising the need to stand united in the face of the current crisis, the actor says, "Some of us are blessed to have food and shelter in these tough times, but there are many who have not had meals in days. To help them, I've started a special food and ration drive, Shakti Annadanam, which is named after my father. I hope I am able to help as many people as possible."
