The film fraternity across the south has joined hands in providing relief to the flood affected victims of Kerala, making generous donations to the Chief Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund (CMDRF) in the past few days. The latest to join the bandwagon is the film unit of the blockbuster Telugu movie RX100. The makers of the film have decided to auction the bike, which played an integral role in the movie, and donate the proceedings to the Kerala relief fund.
The hero of the film Kartikeya took to Twitter to announce the details of the auction. In the video that he posted, the actor is seen appealing to his fans to make a generous donation for a noble cause. The minimum bidding amount is set at Rs 50,000.
Starring Kartikeya and Payal Rajput, RX100 earned an impressive collection at the domestic box office. Written and directed by Ajay Bhupati, RX100 was produced by Ashok Reddy Gummakonda. The film was made on a shoe-string budget of Rs 4.2 crore and went on to collect Rs 21 crore at the box office.
Earlier, actor Vijay Deverakonda, whose Geetha Govindam recently hit the screen, donated Rs 5 lakh to the CM’s relief fund and urged his fans to do the same. “Let’s all pitch in small amounts and we may make a huge change to someone like us in Kerala,” the actor wrote on Twitter.
The makers of Geetha Govindam also announced that the film’s collection in Kerala would be donated for the cause of the flood affected victims in the state.
Other actors from Tollywood like Allu Arjun, Ram Charan Teja, Chiranjeevi and Mahesh Babu have also made generous contributions to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.
Telangana and Andhra Pradesh have contributed nearly Rs 100 crores to the relief efforts in Kerala, by way of funds and providing food supplies and essential commodities.
